Fontaine’s narrow Pete cab for utilities, steel haulers

Fontaine Modification Co. announced its development of a narrow cab for Peterbilt trucks to help fleets improve maneuverability and efficiency when hauling utility poles and steel to offroad sites. Fontaine narrowed the Model 365 6×6 by 18.5 inches, taking it from 72.5 to 54 inches wide to create more space on the cab’s sides to transport poles or steel while meeting legal requirements. The design also provides a door in the back of the cab that allows the driver to exit when cargo is loaded on the sides.

The narrow cab was designed in Fontaine’s Product Development Center in Charlotte, N.C.
