Nelson BLXLT Boom Launch Trailer

Nelson Manufacturing CompanyNelson Manufacturing Company will be unveiling its all new BLXLT line of boom launch trailers at Con-Expo 2023. This new completely reimagined boom launch trailer comes in at a whopping 8,000 LBS less weight than our standard BL models!

This new design will allow for heavier booms to be launched on standard tri-axle and quad axle configurations.  The BLXLT will eliminate the need for booster axles and front jeeps in certain applications.  The moveable rear saddle allows for greater adjustments in axle weight distribution to meet the needs of your regional requirements.
