Fontaine Trailer has introduced a heavy-haul trailer that handles a variety of hauling jobs - the new Fontaine Magnitude 55MX. The new extendable heavy-haul trailer features a modular design that provides convenience and versatility, the company said.

Fabricated with 100,000 pound minimum yield steel flanges, the Magnitude 55MX has a 29 foot clear deck length in the retracted position and easily extends to 50 feet. The loaded deck height is 20 inches with 6 inch ground clearance. The trailer is packed with user-friendly features that save time. For example, the most versatile gooseneck on the market includes all the connections needed to add the optional flip box to achieve 125 inches swing clearance. The adjustable ride-height mechanically locks to give the deck-to-fifthwheel relationship for specific hauling jobs. The ramped bogie features a modular connection, and a built-in tool box and storage compartments are added for greater convenience.

"If you dedicate your trailer to a specific piece of equipment the Magnitude 55MX is great becauseyou can match it exactly to your equipment specifications," said John Craig, president of Fontaine Trailer Company. "If you haul a variety of equipment then the modular design lets you switch easily and quickly to accommodate just about any hauling job."

Fontaine Trailer Company produces a complete line of aluminum, steel and composite trailers for the flatbed, dropdeck and heavy-haul markets. Manufacturing facilities are located in Jasper, Haleyville and Springville, AL.
