“The 60HD is a rugged 60-ton trailer that is ideal for operators who need more capacity than the standard 55-ton models, but want to avoid the financial leap to a 65- or 70-ton trailer,” Todd said. Anderson. , vice president of sales and marketing.
Fontaine says the Magnitude 60HD is designed for fleets operating in areas where spread axle configurations are required to maximize their trailer loads, but it can also handle 65 tons over 12 feet without adding a folding box or spreader.
