Fontaine trailer ready for 60-ton loads

by Today's Trucking

Fontaine Heavy-Haul’s Magnitude 60LCC trailer will haul 60-ton loads in 13 feet with four close-coupled axles.

It’s designed for regions where spread axle configurations are not required to maximize trailer loads.

According to the company, maneuverability is enhanced 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 will also 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 six inches of ground clearance. The hydraulic removable gooseneck can be quickly connected and disconnected on uneven ground, too.
