Fontaine Heavy-Haul has introduced a new trailer that carries heavy loads in a lighter package – the Fontaine Magnitude 55L.
The trailer features a 26-foot clear deck length and a loaded deck height of 18-inches with 6-inches of ground clearance. It features a versatile hydraulic removable gooseneck and can be connected and disconnected in a matter of seconds, according to Fontaine. Additionally, it can be connected or disconnected on uneven ground.
The lowbed trailer handles 55 tons in 13 feet. Fabricated with 100,000 minimum yield steel flanges, the Magnitude 55L is built for durability and designed to provide years of reliable service.
"The Fontaine Magnitude 55L is designed for haulers that do not need a spread axle setup and want to maximize their payload," explained Todd Anderson, vice president of sales and marketing. "Since the new Magnitude 55L operates close coupled only, our engineering team managed to shed 2,000 pounds in the design. So if a hauler only needs three or four axles close coupled, the new Magnitude 55L will carry an additional ton of payload.”
