SAF-Holland Inc introduces the Holland FWAL lightweight aluminum fifthwheel.
Designed by SAF-Holland and forged by Alcoa, the fifthwheel is designed for standard duty and forged from the same aluminum alloy as Alcoa's aluminum truck wheels. Rated for 55,000 pounds maximum vertical load and 150,000 pounds maximum drawbar pull, it is backed by SAF-Holland's five-year/500,000 mile Performance Guarantee.
At 100 pounds lighter than other fifthwheels, haulers can load 100 pounds more per trip.
The fifthwheel was field-tested with fleets using tankers, bulk haulers, and flatbeds hauling loads, including beverages, steel, cement, fuel, liquid and bulk food products, and refuse.
This fifthwheel uses patented NoLube technology that eliminates the use of grease on the top plate, between top plate and bracket, and in the lock mechanism.
