Fontaine Heavy-Haul introduces the Fontaine Magnitude 55L flatbed trailer.
Designed for haulers that do not need a spread axle setup and want to maximize their payload, the 55L operates close coupled only, says Todd Anderson, vice president, sales and marketing. He says the design also enabled Fontaine to shed 2,000 lb. in the design.
“If a hauler only needs 3 or 4 axles close coupled, the new Magnitude 55L will carry an additional ton of payload,” he says.
Fontaine adds the 55L handles 55 tons in just 13 feet. Fabricated with 100,000 lb. minimum yield steel flanges, the Magnitude 55L is built tough and designed to provide years of reliable service. The trailer boasts a 26 ft. clear deck length and a loaded deck height of 18 in. with 6 in. of ground clearance. The company adds it features the most versatile hydraulic removable gooseneck in the industry and can be connected and disconnected in a matter of seconds, not minutes, even on uneven ground.
A wide variety of accessories are available, the company says.
