Fontaine Trailer has introduced the Fusion aluminum trailer, which the company said handles 52,000 lbs. in four feet despite weighing only 8,400 lbs--delivering bigger payloads at a lower fuel cost.
"It's a perfect addition to our aluminum trailer product line," said John Craig, president of Fontaine Trailer Company. "The Phantom takes care of our customers with loads that require a 100,000-lb mainbeam rating and Fusion handles a much larger segment of the market that only needs an 80,000-lb. beam rating."
According to Fontaine, the extruded mainbeam eliminates the high-stress weld between the web and the flange, improving strength and durability, while the 7.5” flange virtually eliminates side-to-side sway.
