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, 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 fourth axle.”


Fontaine says the trailer is also able to accommodate a spread axle configuration, and is designed to accept a 23-in. flip box and a Fontaine EQ1 spreader with a fourth axle. In this configuration, the trailer can haul 55 tons in 16 ft. with a 125-in. swing radius, according to the company.

Fabricated with 100,000-lb. minimum yield steel flanges, the Magnitude 60LCC has a true 26-ft. clear deck length and a loaded deck height of 18 in., with 6 in. of ground clearance, the company adds. The hydraulic removable gooseneck can be connected and disconnected quickly and can connect/disconnect on uneven ground.
