Fontaine announces Magnitude 60HD modular lowbed trailer

Fontaine Heavy-Haul announced the Magnitude 60HD modular lowbed trailer. The Magnitude 60 HD hauls 60 tons in 16 ft. utilizing the Fontaine EQ2 Spreader and two additional axles (3+2 configuration). Equipped with a modular tridem bogie, the trailer can connect with four different deck options: from a flat level, drop side rail, or beam deck to an extendable deck (available in 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,” said Todd Anderson, vice president of sales and marketing.

Fontaine says the Magnitude 60HD is designed for fleets operating in regions where spread axle configurations are required to maximize their trailer loads, but it can also handle 65 tons in 12 ft. without adding a flip box or a spreader. This means fleets can achieve a lighter trailer setup at a lower acquisition cost if local regulations allow a four-axle close couple configuration by adding a flip axle, Fontaine says.

Fabricated with 100,000# minimum yield steel flanges, the trailers comes with 26-ft. clear deck length and a loaded deck height for the flat level deck of 22-in. with 6-in. of ground clearance. Both the flat level and drop side rail decks are available in optional 9-ft. width along with 5- or 10-ft. deck inserts for added flexibility.
