GoBob is proud to announce our new line of steel gooseneck livestock trailers - Galyean Stock Trailers!
For the last few years you have asked for it and GoBob has listened. GoBob is proud to announce our new line of steel gooseneck livestock trailers – Galyean Stock Trailers! Time and production capacity prevented me from moving forward because if GoBob is going to sell anything, it has to the BEST.
I spoke with Allen Galyean in early 2015, who told me of his plans about the type of stock trailer he was going to build. After learning, that he’s been manufacturing chemical and acid semi-trailers in a state-of-the-art facility, I told him I wanted to see his stock trailer as soon as he began production. I was not just impressed, I was awestruck by what I saw.
They have thought of everything. Their attention to detail is extraordinary, right down to the grease zerts on the latch receiver. There are many details that are standard for the Galyean Stock Trailer which other manufacturers consider to be options or upgrades.
Their attention to detail is remarkable, right down to the grease zerts on the latch receiver. But if you asked me to point out the two most important features of their trailers, would say the uni-body FRAME and the FINISH.
The obvious difference is the construction of the trailer itself. You see, stock trailers have a uni-body construction, that is, the body is the frame. Therefore the durability of the frame dictates the lifespan of the trailer. GoBob’s Galyean will outlast the rest!
Standard stock trailers use fenders and body pans made out of 12 gauge sheet metal. Now the specification on 12 gauge sheet metal is a thickness of .1046 of an inch, or about a 1/10th of an inch.
The Galyean trailers GoBob is selling has fenders and body pans made of 3/16th plate!
The fenders and pans on standard stock trailers are supported by 2” x 3/16th angle iron, welded perpendicular to the trailer, in other words, they run cross wise.
The Galyean trailers also use 2” x 3/16th angle but the placement is the key to their strength. They are placed longitudinally, the length of the trailer, on 12” centers, further supported perpendicular 4” channel every 5 ft. PLUS at least an 8” channel that runs across the back of the trailer!
Galyean utilizes the same high tensile plate steel that is used in the manufacturing of their severe service off road tanker trailers to produce a stronger frame that is the backbone of the livestock trailer. Their CNC formed “Z” pan has a higher vertical web for added strength unlike any other trailer on the market. The unique “tee post” tubing design at the rear of the trailer, along with the wrapped tubing bumper adds more structural strength to the rear of the trailer. Welds are produced with a higher end quality gas and wire that is specifically found in certified vessel shop, applied by experienced, certified welders to create a superior stock trailer.
A stock trailer is the only trailer used in cattle production where corrosion from animal waste is a concern, it is a HUGE problem. Livestock waste is corrosive to steel and will make a stock trailer rust out faster than anything.
Therefore, the finish on a stock trailer is CRITICAL and Galyean utilizes a finish that quite frankly, no one else is even capable of producing.
Galyean has been building acid and chemical trailers for over 30 years. Can you imagine the protection they have to put on those trailers? Well, they put the same finish on these stock trailers.
Preparation includes a 3 step acid wash with a phosphorus solution. This cleans and etches the steel to allow the paint to bond to the trailer better, creating a perfect seal. Then, they use the “world class” Dupont Imron high solids flex paint. All of this is then followed by a superior Dupont Imron acrylic clear coat with added corrosion inhibitors to fight rust. The clear-coat provides excellent gloss and color retention and is much more resistant to to rock chips and scratches than the standard non clear coated systems.
In summary, just those two factors, the construction and finish means your trailer will still be operating long after your neighbor’s trailer has gone to the scrapyard!
You want something that will hold it’s value, well you’ve found it!
This stock trailer has seen its fair share of crap...
These stock trailers will hold what you value, as well as their own.
Galyean equipment has been manufacturing heavy haul agricultural and oilfield products since 1981. They apply their engineering and modern manufacturing practices in a state of the art facility to develop this new line of steel gooseneck livestock trailers.
Galyean not only goes the extra mile to fabricate a stronger livestock trailer, Galyean believes that their paint coating system sets them apart from other manufacturers of stock trailers. All of these processes add up to long term durability, corrosion resistance and extended life expectancy of the trailer.
GoBob’s Galyean stock trailer comes standard with heavy duty butterfly gates on the rear formed from 2x4 tubing with a pipe latch. We offer other types of rear gates, such as a sliding gate to suit your specific needs which are optional.
The Galyean comes with a standard wood floor but we, at GoBob recommend the optional X-lug cleated, rubber flooring that comes with a 20 year warranty. This rubber, cleated flooring will outlast the rest!
Galyean & GoBob:
For years, customers have asked if we would build stock trailers that had the same quality as our Red Rhino trailers. Bob and Allen Galyean talked several months ago about Allen’s plans to enter the livestock trailer market and based on the specifications Allen said he was going to put into his trailers, Bob asked that he send one as soon as he could. They came, we saw and honestly we can say - GoBob is proud to add Galyean trailers to their product line!
