Customers looking for the right fifth wheel for their application can turn to a 14-pg. resource guide available from Fontaine International. The guide walks customers through various top plates and mounting options available and makes recommendations based on application.
Among the applications covered are van trailers, tankers and bulk trailers, flatbeds, stretch and stake trailers, lowboy trailers, frame-end dump trailers, bottom-dump trailers and frameless-end dump trailers. Color photos, product descriptions, selection suggestions and chart of duty-class restrictions are also included.
“Fontaine International offers a complete line of top plates and mounting options in a wide variety of sizes to handle even the most demanding applications,” says Terry Mennen, vp-sales and marketing. “Our new application guide helps fleets specify the fifth wheels that will best meet their needs based on anticipated load capacity and service conditions.”
The guide is available for download or by calling 800-874-9780.
