Fontaine Trailer Company has introduced a new trailer featuring independent sliding axles.
Fontaine says its new Infinity Superior Slide is the most versatile platform trailer on the market, and can be configured as a closed tandem set at the rear, a closed tandem set at the front, a full 10′ spread axle, and any combination in between.
“(Fontaine dealers) told us that fleets are reporting that several states are beginning to enforce kingpin-to-axle regulations, and that drivers need an easy way to stay in compliance… especially since these regulations vary from state to state, making it even more difficult for drivers to stay in compliance,” Alan Briley, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing, says.
Briley says the new trailer gives drivers the ability to change axle settings quickly and easily to accommodate various state regulations, and to keep their equipment rolling no matter where they go.
“It’s perfect for leasing and rental operations where ‘you never know’ where the trailer might end up running,” he adds.
The entire Infinity line is constructed with fabricated steel mainbeams built with grade 130 flanges and welded continuously on both sides and steel crossbracing, aluminum floor and rear skirt, and with Fontaine’s exclusive RASR routed aluminum side rail.
