Fontaine Heavy-Haul has introduced a new trailer, the new Fontaine Magnitude 60LCC, that hauls 60-ton loads in 13 ft. with four axles close coupled.
The Fontaine Magnitude 60LCC is designed for customers operating in regions where spread axle configurations are not required to maximize their trailer loads, the company says.
“If local regulations allow a more concentrated load, this trailer is a great choice,” says Todd Anderson, vice president of sales and marketing.
“It can handle 60 tons without adding a flip box or a spreader. This means our customers get a much lighter trailer setup at a much lower acquisition cost,” Anderson says. “Plus, maneuverability is greatly improved since the overall length is reduced by more than 11 ft., compared to a trailer equipped with a flip box, spreader and fourth axle. With its 60-ton capacity and 18-in. deck height, this trailer is a winner.”
However, should the application require a spread axle configuration, the Magnitude 60LCC is ready and able, the company says. It is designed to accept a 23-in. flip box and a Fontaine EQ1 spreader with a fourth axle. In this configuration, the trailer can haul 55 tons in 16 ft. with a 125-in. swing radius.
The Magnitude 60LCC is built tough and designed to provide years of reliable service, Fontaine says. The trailer boasts a true 26-ft. clear deck length and a loaded deck height of 18 in. with 6 in. of ground clearance. It features the most versatile hydraulic removable gooseneck in the industry; it can be connected and disconnected in a matter of seconds and it can connect/disconnect on uneven ground.
