NEW FONTAINE® HEAVY-HAUL MAGNITUDE 60LCC HANDLES 60 TONS WITH 18″ DECK HEIGHT
SPRINGVILLE, ALABAMA — (Trailer Technician) – Fontaine Heavy-Haul, the recognized technology leader and innovator in the lowbed trailer industry, is introducing a new trailer that hauls 60 ton loads in 13′ with 4 axles close coupled – the new Fontaine Magnitude® 60LCC.
The Fontaine Magnitude 60LCC 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, VP 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″ deck height, this trailer is a winner,” Anderson concluded.
However, should the application require a spread axle configuration, the Magnitude 60LCC is ready and able. It is designed to accept a 23″ flip box and a Fontaine EQ1 spreader with a 4th axle. In this configuration, the trailer can haul 55 tons in 16′ with a 125″ swing radius.
Fabricated with 100,000# minimum yield steel flanges, the Magnitude 60LCC is built tough and designed to provide years of reliable service. The trailer boasts a true 26′ clear deck length and a loaded deck height of 18″ with 6″ 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… not minutes, and it can connect/disconnect on uneven ground.
A wide variety of accessories are available, and your local Fontaine Heavy-Haul dealer can help you specify the right configuration for your application.
