Fontaine’s product line was recently made available through Peterbilt’s data book, making it easy to order Peterbilt tractors equipped with Fontaine No-Slack fifth wheels.
“The Peterbilt brand is legendary in the trucking industry, and Fontaine is honored to have earned their confidence,” remarked Buck Buchanan, President of Fontaine Fifth Wheel.
The Fontaine Fifth wheel is designed with a No-Slack locking system that provides a trigger activated self-adjusting locking mechanism to prevent high-hitching and accommodate for variation in the kingpin during connection. The No-Slack locking design provides a secure fit for trailer-to-trailer connections, and the kingpin fit reduces shock inputs into the frame.
