Fontaine Heavy-Haul has introduced the Magnitude 60HD modular lowbed trailer. The Magnitude 60 HD hauls 60 tons in 16 feet utilizing the Fontaine EQ2 Spreader and two additional axles (3+2 configuration). Equipped with a modular tridem bogie, this trailer can connect with four different deck options so you can match the load configuration to the task at hand: from a flat level, drop side rail, or beam deck to an extendable deck (available early 2022).

"The 60HD is a Heavy-Duty 60 ton trailer that hits a sweet spot for operators who need more capacity than standard 55 ton models but want to avoid the financial jump to a 65 or 70 ton trailer," explained Todd Anderson, Fontaine VP sales and marketing.

The Magnitude 60 HD hauls 60 tons in 16 feet utilizing the Fontaine EQ2 Spreader and two additional axles (3+2 configuration). Equipped with a modular tridem bogie, this trailer can connect with four different deck options so you can match the load configuration to the task at hand: from a flat level, drop side rail, or beam deck to an extendable deck (available early 2022).

This trailer is designed for customers operating in regions where spread axle configurations are required to maximize their trailer loads, but it can also handle 65 tons in 12 feet without adding a flip box or a spreader. This means customers can achieve a lighter trailer setup at a lower acquisition cost if local regulations allow a 4-axle close couple configuration by just adding a flip axle.

The standard trailer boasts a true 26-foot clear deck length and a loaded deck height for the flat level deck of 22 inches with 6 inches of ground clearance. Both the flat level and drop side rail decks are available in optional 9 foot width along with 5- or 10-foot deck inserts for added flexibility.
