Fontaine Heavy-Haul rolled out a new modular lowbed trailer in the Magnitude 60HD.

“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,” says Todd Anderson, vice president of sales and marketing at Fontaine Heavy-Haul. “As equipment weight trends heavier, this trailer is a welcome addition to our product line for many of our customers.”

The Magnitude 60HD hauls 60 tons in 16 ft. utilizing the Fontaine EQ2 spreader and two additional axles that are in a three-plus-two configuration. Equipped with a modular tridem bogie, Fontaine Heavy-Haul says the trailer can connect with four different deck options so users can match their load configuration to the task at hand – from a flat level, drop-side rail or beam deck, to an extendable deck that will be available early next year.

According to Fontaine Heavy-Haul, the Magnitude 60HD is designed for customers operating in regions where spread axle configurations are required to maximize trailer loads. The Magnitude 60HD, however, can also handle 65 tons in 12 ft. without adding a flip box or a spreader. The company says this means users can achieve a lighter trailer setup at a lower acquisition cost if local regulations allow a four-axle close couple configuration by just adding a flip axle.

The standard trailer boasts a 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. widths, along with 5-ft. or 10-ft. deck inserts for added flexibility.
