In early 2021, Fontaine Specialized introduced the Workhorse 55PVR paver trailer. Now Fontaine is introducing a new model to the Workhorse lineup with the 55PVR Pro.
The new Fontaine Workhorse 55PVR Pro is a multi-purpose road construction trailer featuring the same low front approach angle (ideal for ground hugging pavers, milling machines, etc.), plus an easily removable two-piece center bogie section to accommodate excavators. The 55PVR Pro also comes standard with a longer gooseneck, 275 tires and 108"/82" dual kingpin for the ultimate in overall length flexibility.
Like the original Fontaine Workhorse 55PVR, the Pro model is designed specifically for road builders.
“The low 9° front ramp at the deck and the 17° deck-to-bogie transition ramps make this a truly versatile trailer,” explained Heather Gilmer, VP Sales. “It can handle 55 tons in 16 feet or 50 tons in 12 feet with 3 or 4 axles close coupled; so it can haul a wide variety of concentrated loads. As an added bonus, the center bogie section can be removed to reveal a boom trough with a V-pan for transporting excavators. Plus, for those that prefer larger 275 tires but still need to be 53' in overall length to haul millers, pavers, rollers or even excavators–this trailer will do the job.”
Both the Workhorse 55PVR and 55PVR Pro models are equipped with the acclaimed Fontaine hydraulic removable “hook and shaft” gooseneck that can connect to or disconnect from the deck on uneven ground.
