What Rolled Out in 2018 and How to Back it Up?

Robertson Truck Sales: Certified Fontaine Semi-Trailer Dealer

Robertson Truck Sales is proud to be your certified Fontaine Semi-Trailer dealer in Ohio. As our team strives to deliver the best trucking solutions to our customers, customer satisfaction is what has made Fontaine the leading company to manufacturer flatbed trailers. According to HDT Truckinginfo, semi-trailers have been built to meet the demands of customers needs.

  • Trailers are being made to "slip more easily through the wind."
  • Trailers are being designed to "last longer in severe-service operations."
  • Trailers are being built to "meet strict new food transportation rules."

Fontaine Semi-Trailers Released in 2018

Two models of Fontaine Semi-Trailers were released in 2018 specifically "designed for the demands of frac and haulers." These trailers are built "to handle concentrated loads, travel rough terrain, and resist damage from forklift side impacts."

  • Fontaine Velocity TX (all-steel trailer)
  • Fontaine Infinity TX (aluminum/steel combo)

Backing Up A Tractor Trailer Takes Time and Experience

It's always important to take extreme caution whenever you're backing up your big rig. When you have been driving for hours, and you have safely reached your destination, don't let the last few minutes end up with a backing accident. Found on CDL Training Spot, "Backing Up A Tractor Trailer? 22 Tips To Help You Perfect It," is especially good information for newer truck drivers.

Every point is important. A great point made is number 9. It makes sense to avoid backing up. When you don't have to back up to a dock, try and find a place that doesn't require backing up to move forward. Number 18 is also a great point. If you're not sure your rig will fit, don't take the chance. Like any accident, you want to avoid the hassles and the headaches of dealing with an accident. The key to being a great truck driver is always putting safety first.
