Fontaine introduces tridem dropdeck trailer

The three-axle all-aluminum Revolution trailer features air lift center and rear axles.


Fontaine, the leading brand and recognized technology leader in the platform trailer industry, is introducing a new three-axle all-aluminum Revolution dropdeck trailer that features air lift center and rear axles.

“The new Revolution tridem gives our customers hauling versatility at the touch of a button,” explained Ken Webb, vice president of Dealer Sales. “When you lift the rear axle you get a front tandem configuration that measures 40' from the kingpin to the rear axle making the trailer California legal. When you lift the center axle you get a 10' 2" spread axle configuration that will handle the maximum legal load capacity of the trailer with ease. Drop all three axles and you have more capacity to haul heavier permitted loads," continued Webb.

Revolution trailers offers innovative features that are only available from Fontaine. The patented RASR Routed Aluminum Side Rail withstands impacts better than the previous industry-standard design; so it brushes off a forklift hit that would send another trailer to the repair shop. The patented StirLITE friction stir welded aluminum floor is a lighter, stronger unitized design; it offers unequalled road stability as the trailer travels the highways to reduce friction for longer tire life and better fuel economy.
