Fontaine Heavy-Haul recently introduced the Magnitude 60LCC, a new trailer that hauls 60-ton loads in 13 feet with four axles close coupled.
The Magnitude 60LCC is designed to operate in regions where spread axle configurations are not required to maximize their trailer loads.
“If local regulations allow a more concentrated load this trailer is a great choice,” explained Todd Anderson, VP of sales and marketing. “It can handle 60 tons without adding a flip box or a spreader.”
According to the company, maneuverability was improved by reducing the overall length of the trailer by more than 11 feet, compared to a trailer equipped with a flip box, spreader, and fourth axle.
The Magnitude 60LCC was also designed to accept a 23-foot flip box and a Fontaine EQ1 spreader with a fourth axle. In this configuration, the trailer can haul 55 tons in 16 feet with a 125-inch swing radius.
The trailer boasts a true 26-foot clear deck length and a loaded deck height of 18 inches with 6 inches of ground clearance. The hydraulic removable gooseneck can be connected and disconnected quickly and can be connected/disconnected on uneven ground.
