Fontaine Heavy-Haul Introduces Magnitude® 60LCC Trailer
BY AsphaltPro Staff
Fontaine Heavy-Haul, Springville, Alabama, has introduced the new Fontaine Magnitude® 60LCC trailer, which is designed to haul 60-ton loads in 13 feet with four axles close coupled. It is designed for customers operating in regions where spread axle configurations are not required to maximize their trailer loads. “If local regulations allow a more concentrated load, this trailer is a great choice,” explained 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. Plus, maneuverability is greatly improved since the overall length is reduced by more than 11 feet compared to a trailer equipped with a flip box, spreader, and 4th axle. With its 60-ton capacity and 18-inch deck height, this trailer is a winner,” Anderson concluded.
However, should the application require a spread axle configuration, the Magnitude 60LCC is designed to accept a 23-inch flip box and a Fontaine EQ1 spreader with a 4th axle. In this configuration, the trailer can haul 55 tons in 16 feet with a 125-inch swing radius, according to the manufacturer.
