SPRINGVILLE, ALABAMA -- Fontaine Heavy-Haul, the recognized technology leader and innovator in the lowbed trailer industry, is introducing a new versatile trailer for the road construction industry–the new Fontaine Workhorse 55PVR. This trailer features a low front approach angle ideal for ground-hugging pavers and a removable center bogie section to accommodate excavators.
The Fontaine Workhorse 55PVR is designed specifically for road builders. “The low 9° front ramp at the deck and the 16° deck-to-bogie transition ramps make this a truly versatile trailer,” explained Todd Anderson, VP Sales and Marketing. “It boasts 55 tons in 16 feet or 50 tons in 12 feet with 3 or 4 axles close-coupled, so it can handle a wide variety of concentrated loads. In addition, a 4-point lift system makes it easy to remove the bogie center platform creating a low boom well. So if you need to haul a miller, paver, roller or even an excavator to build a road, this trailer will haul it,” Anderson concluded.
The Workhorse 55PVR is equipped with the versatile Fontaine hydraulic removable gooseneck that can connect to or disconnect from the deck on uneven ground. A wide variety of accessories are available, and your local Fontaine Heavy-Haul dealer can help you specify the right configuration for your application.
