Fontaine Heavy-Haul, lowbed trailer manufacturer, is introducing a new versatile trailer for the road construction industry–the new Fontaine Workhorse 55PVR. The trailer features a low front approach angle ideal for ground-hugging pavers and a removable centre bogie section to accommodate excavators.

The company said the new Workhorse 55PVR is designed specifically for road builders.

“The low nine-degree front ramp at the deck and the 16-degree deck-to-bogie transition ramps make this a truly versatile trailer,” explained Todd Anderson, vice president of sales and marketing. “It boasts 55 tons in 16 feet or 50 tons in 12 feet with three or four 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 centre 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 versatile Fontaine hydraulic removable gooseneck that can connect to or disconnect from the deck on uneven ground. A wide variety of accessories are available. For more information, visit
