Fifth Wheel | FWAL Series

A cooperative development with Alcoa's forging team made this exciting new technology possible. Lighter than competitive fifth wheels, the FWAL is designed for standard duty applications and forged from the same alloy as Alcoa's aluminium truck wheels. True NoLube technology reduces customer maintenance time and costs, while keeping our environment cleaner

SAF-Holland and Alcoa (the world's leader in aluminium technology) have partnered to produce the world's lightest standard duty fifth wheel, the Aluminium Fifth Wheel.

The FWAL Series aluminium fifth wheel can save up to 125 lbs.compared to competitive models. Less weight means more load per trip, which means more profit per trip!

The FWAL Series also features our NoLube technology, standard. That means no grease, on the top plate or the locks, ever.

A fifth wheel is only as good as the company that stands behind it, and SAF-Holland has raised the bar on supplier accountability. We offer the industry's first Performance Guarantee. SAF-Holland  warrants not only the material and workmanship of the FWAL Series fifth wheel, but we also guarantee the durability as well.

Simply put:

  • No bracket pocket insert replacements
  • No lock jaw replacements
  • No rebuilds
  • Guaranteed for 5 Years / 500,000 Miles**

*When used with a Holland ILS Slider, the FWAL weighs 125 lbs. less than the competitors' *comparable fifth wheel / slider combination.

**Please see FWAL Warranty for complete details.

Features and Benefits

  • NoLube Technology, Standard
    • NoLube technology eliminates the need for lubrication on the top plate and locking mechanism. Replaceable NoLube plate inserts are mechanically bonded to a unique, perforated steel plate that provides low friction performance, and extends the life of the lube plate compound, eliminating the need for lubrication.
  • Forged Aluminium Top Plate
    • The FWAL's top plate is forged by Alcoa from the same alloy as Alcoa aluminium truck wheels (6061-T6), providing the perfect combination of the lightest weight fifth wheel in the world, with strength and durability.
  • Front Lock Insert
    • The top plate's front lock insert is a wear-resistant alloy of machined steel
  • Standard Drop Handle Configuration
    • A drop handle configuration is standard. This reduces handle damage and maintenance repairs due to improper coupling. The release handle requires a simple, straight pull effort and is available in right or left hand release. Our EZ grip release handle requires less pull effort to operate while improving safety.
