New Cobraneck Detachable Gooseneck Design
Rogers Brothers Corporation recently designed this 55-ton, platform deck trailer for a Buffalo company to haul assorted pieces of construction equipment for its customers. The trailer features ROGERS® new CobraNeck detachable gooseneck design, which adjusts for various ground clearance positions, thus saving time that would be spent in changing ride height settings. The gooseneck is adaptable to multiple tractor fifth wheel heights. Unlike many 55-ton capacity trailers, which require the load to be spread evenly across the full length of the deck, this trailer can handle a load concentrated in any 13 feet of the 25-foot long platform deck. The adjustable deck height is standard at 18 inches fully loaded. For more information, call 800.441.9880, or visit
Robo Joiner
The BNRJ-100 Robo Joiner mechanizes the installation of control joints. It can easily reduce the time it takes to install joints in concrete during the curing process. The tool comes with two groove patterns: a rolled edge joint and a “saw-cut” look. The tool gives a contractor complete control over the placement of their joints. The vibrating, and up/down motion of the blade pushes aggregate down and away from the joint, providing better crack control. The Robo Joiner comes in a blow molded case, with two 20V Li-Ion batteries and a quick charger. One charge of the battery will allow for over 100 feet of joints. It is easy to change from one style of joint to another with just a few changes of parts. Clean up with just water and a brush. For more information, visit
