Fontaine says Fusion flatbed can carry that weight

Fontaine Trailer says its Fusion flatbed combines premium strength at a lighter overall weight to deliver bigger payloads for users with loads that require a 100,000-pound mainbeam rating, while also handling those needing only an 80,000-beam rating.

The trailer weighs only 8,400 pounds, yet handles a 52,000-pound load in just four feet, according to the company; because the mainbeam is extruded, the high-stress weld between the web and the flange is eliminated to help improve strength and durability. Fontaine says the trailer’s proprietary design — which features an oversized 7.5-inch flange to help eliminate side-to-side sway — also provides increased stability.
