Fontaine unveils new 60-ton trailer

20 July 2020

Fontaine Heavy-Haul has launched the Magnitude 60LCC trailer that hauls 60 US ton (54 metric ton) loads in 13 feet (4 meters) with 4 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 said.

The Fontaine Magnitude 60LCC trailer hauls 60 US ton (54 metric ton) loads in 13 feet (4 meters) with 4 axles close coupled.

“If local regulations allow a more concentrated load this trailer is a great choice,” explained Todd Anderson, VP sales and marketing, Fontaine Heavy-Haul. “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 fourth axle. With its 60 ton [54 metric ton] capacity and 18 inch [457 millimeter] deck height, this trailer is a winner.”

However, should the application require a spread axle configuration, the Magnitude 60LCC is designed to accept a 23 inch (584 millimeter) flip box and a Fontaine EQ1 spreader with a 4th axle. In this configuration, the trailer can haul 55 tons (50 metric tons) in 16 feet (4.9 meters) with a 125 inch (3.175 meters) swing radius.

The trailer boasts a 26 foot (7.9 meter) clear deck length and a loaded deck height of 18 inches (457 millimeter) with 6 inches (150 mm) of ground clearance. It features a versatile hydraulic removable gooseneck that can also connect and disconnect on uneven ground.
