Fontaine Heavy-Haul, manufacturer in the lowbed trailer industry, is introducing a new trailer for the road construction industry: the new Fontaine Workhorse 55PVR.
The Fontaine Workhorse 55PVR 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-degree front ramp at the deck and the 16-degree 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 four-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.”
The Workhorse 55PVR is equipped with the 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.
