TECHNOLOGY
advanced technology delivers superior performance
Revolutionary
Designs
The Holland 3500 model fifth wheel has been
the foundation for evolutionary new ideas that
expand fifth wheel function and value. For
example, Holland’s 3500 NoLube model
eliminates all fifth wheel lubrication
requirements.This advancement means that
drivers no longer get dirty from greasy fifth
wheels. Nor do they spend time greasing top
plates or locks. Shop managers can improve
the work environment for mechanics and
reduce the potential for costly injuries from
slips and falls on greasy floors.And, fleets can
protect the environment from excess grease
on the road on in our water supply.
Other Holland innovations on the 3500 Series
include a system for in-cab air release of the
fifth wheel locks, an Electronic Lock Indicator
(ELI) which insures a secure coupling between
tractor and trailer, and the new ILS® low weight,
integrated sliding fifth wheel bracket.

HOW TO USE
THIS GUIDE
The Holland Fifth Wheel Selection Guide is set up to help you quickly complete the fifth wheel
selection process. Simply complete Steps 1 through 7 below, and you will be well on your way
to placing an order for the correct fifth wheel for your vehicle.
Step 1
Review “Items to Consider Before Selecting Your Fifth Wheel”
Section: Stationary/Sliding, Ratings and Capacities, Height,
Weight, Cost.
Step 2
Determine the type of vehicle your fifth wheel will be mounted
on (for example, tractor, converter dolly, or B-train connection)
and the type of trailer your fifth wheel will be connected to (for
example, van, tanker, etc.).
Step 3
Use the table on Page 31 to determine whether your vehicle will
be used in a Standard, Moderate or Severe Duty application.
Step 4
Locate your vehicle and trailer type in the “Selection Tables”
section of the Table of Contents, and turn to the appropriate
fifth wheel selection page (for example, fifth wheels for tractors
pulling dry bulk trailers are found on Page 31).
Step 5
Refer to the appropriate application as determined in Step 3
and using the vehicle descriptions and expected capacity
requirements, review the series and types of fifth wheels
recommended.
Step 6
After selecting the fifth wheel type that meets your requirements,
refer to your Holland fifth wheel sales literature for specific part
number and ordering information.This literature is available
from any Holland distributor or dealer or directly from Holland.
Step 7
If there is still insufficient information on which to make a
selection, contact your Holland representative for assistance. In
the U.S., call 1-888-396-6501. In Canada, call 519-537-2366. For a

ITEMS TO CONSIDER
BEFORE SELECTING YOUR FIFTH WHEEL
In addition to selecting the proper fifth wheel model for your
application, the following additional items must be considered before
you specify your complete fifth wheel assembly:
Stationary or Sliding
Stationary
Stationary fifth wheels are best suited for applications where the 1) axle
loading, 2) kingpin setting, and 3) vehicle combination length all remain
constant throughout the fleet. Stationary fifth wheels are generally lighter
weight and lower in cost than sliding fifth wheels; however, they do not
offer the application flexibility of a sliding fifth wheel.
If a stationary fifth wheel is chosen, the user still must determine
whether to use an “angle-on-frame” (low cost and less torsional rigidity,
see Figure 1), a “plate mount” (higher cost and high torsional rigidity,
see Figure 2) or an “outboard angle mount” (universal hole pattern for
medium torsional rigidity bolt-on mounting, see Figure 3).This selection
should be made to compliment the suspension and tractor frame.

Frame

Figure 2
Sliding
The selection of a sliding fifth wheel (see Figures 4 - 6) provides the
capability to 1) transfer weight between tractor axles, 2) accommodate
trailers with different kingpin settings and, 3) vary vehicle combination
lengths.A sliding fifth wheel also provides the following additional
benefits:
Outboard
Angle
Mount
Figure 3
Resale: A sliding fifth wheel offers maximum equipment flexibility
and is more likely to fit the application of a prospective purchaser.
Improved Maneuverability: A sliding fifth wheel positioned forward
provides additional maneuverability in tight locations and sliding the
fifth wheel rearward accommodates trailers with short landing gear
clearance.
Ride Comfort: Driver comfort is increased as the fifth wheel is
located closer to the centerline of the bogie or rear axle.When the
axles are not overloaded, the driver has the ability to extend the unit
for maximum comfort.
Outboard
Angle
Mount
Figure 4
If a sliding fifth wheel is chosen, the mounting style (“outboard angle”
“inboard angle” or “direct mount”) (see Figures 4 - 6) and slide length
must be specified:
Slide Length: Proper slide length specification is very important. If
the slide length is too short, optimum equipment utilization may not
be achieved (i.e. inability to shift enough kingpin load to the front
axle). However, if too long a slide length is specified, either
overloading of the front axle or interference between the
tractor/trailer may occur during cornering.A slide length which is
too long also results in additional tractor weight and fifth wheel
initial cost.

ITEMS TO CONSIDER
BEFORE SELECTING YOUR FIFTH WHEEL
Fifth Wheel Ratings and
Capacities
The selection of the proper fifth wheel capacity is
a major consideration. The use of a fifth wheel that
does not meet the required capacity and the
demands of the application may result in an unsafe
operating condition and maintenance problems.
The user should specify a higher capacity rating
than his normal needs require, taking into
consideration the towed vehicle weight (TVW) to
be pulled, maximum drawbar load expected,
vertical load to be carried by the fifth wheel and
type of operation. Off-highway use will normally
require a higher capacity rating. For example, a
tractor pulling a 130,000 GTW trailer, with a
50,000 lbs. vertical load for off-road use, should be
specifying a HOLLAND extra capacity, stationary
mount FW0070 fifth wheel which has a drawbar
capacity of 200,000 lbs. and a vertical load
capacity of 70,000 lbs.
Note: The lower the fifth wheel height, the less
articulation available, especially in off-road
applications. Operating conditions must be
considered to ensure the tractor-trailer will not
exceed the available articulation, resulting in
damage to the fifth wheel, tractor frame or trailer.
Fifth Wheel Weight
The weight of the fifth wheel should be a balance
between operational cost, strength, and durability.
Any additional weight (above the requirements of
your operation) will result in additional expense.
This expense will be in initial cost, reduced cargo
carrying capacity, and additional fuel cost.
Purchasing the lightest fifth wheel, however, may
not result in the lowest cost. Lighter weight may
be a trade-off of strength and durability and can
result in additional maintenance, downtime, and
expense.
Fifth Wheel Height
Another item to specify while selecting a fifth
wheel is the fifth wheel height.This is a critical
specification because the overall combination
height cannot exceed 13´ 6˝. The fifth wheel is
designed to operate with the top plate level, so
every attempt should be made to match the fifth
wheel height with the trailer upper coupler
(bolster plate) height.
An important consideration relative to fifth wheel
height is developing a standard fleet specification.
Having all tractors with the same mounted fifth
wheel height (height from the ground to the top
of the fifth wheel) will reduce the need to adjust
the trailer landing gear before coupling and
consequently aid in proper coupling.
The maximum allowable fifth wheel height is
determined by subtracting the trailer height and
tractor frame height from the maximum height of
13´ 6˝. As a final check, the tire clearance should
be considered, keeping in mind spring deflection
under full load.
Cost
No discussion of fifth wheels is complete without
referring to costs.The user should always balance
the cost of the unit to be purchased against the
job required, maintenance costs, wear life, and
availability of parts and service.The purchase of an
inexpensive fifth wheel may result in additional
operational and repair costs related to downtime
and potential kingpin replacement and tractor or
trailer frame damage which can far exceed the
initial cost of a premium fifth wheel.
If a specialty fifth wheel (e.g. a Kompensator®) or
special options have been recommended for your
application, special consideration should be given
to those recommendations. The benefits received
may offset the additional initial cost.
Also, if your vehicle is expected to serve in
multiple applications, a fifth wheel that will
adequately perform all functions should be chosen.

FIFTH WHEEL
APPLICATIONS
Semi-Oscillating Type
The standard over-the-road fifth wheel is the semi-oscillating
type (See Figure 1) which oscillates or articulates about an
axis perpendicular to the vehicle centerline to accommodate
for normal road variations (inclines, bumps, etc.)
Vehicle

Figure 1
Top Plate, Brackets & Lock Grease Required
NoLube
An over-the-road semi-oscillating fifth wheel (See Figure 2)
model designed to completely eliminate all lubrication
requirements. Patented surface alloy on the kingpin contact
surfaces of the lock jaws provide lubrication-free operation,
eliminating the need to grease the locks. Molded “lube free”
inserts in the top plate and “lube free” pocket inserts also
eliminate the need for lubrication.
Figure 2
NoLube – No Greasing Required
LowLube
An over-the-road semi-oscillating fifth wheel (See Figure 3)
designed to eliminate the use of grease on the top plate and
between top plate and bracket. Grease is supplied to the lock
jaws through an easily accessed lube fitting near the release
handle. Routine maintenance and lubrication of the locking
mechanism is still required. Molded “lube free” inserts in the
top plate and “lube free” pocket inserts eliminate the need for
lubrication in these areas.
Figure 3
Fully (Double) Oscillating Fifth Wheel
A fifth wheel designed to provide both front-to-rear
and side-to-side oscillation between the tractor and
semi-trailer; for vehicles that operate on rough and
uneven terrain (mining, logging, etc.) (See Figure 4).
The oscillation is provided by the use of an
undercarriage employing both transverse and
longitudinal shafts.The side-to-side oscillation pivot
point is located below the fifth wheel bearing surface.
It is intended for applications where the center
of gravity of the loaded semi-trailer is at or
below the top of the fifth wheel.

FIFTH WHEEL
APPLICATIONS
Rigid Type or “No-Tilt”
A rigid fifth wheel does not oscillate about either axis of
the vehicle but is fixed in location (Figure 5). In
applications which require this type of fifth wheel, the
oscillation (articulation) is provided by other means (i.e.
articulating upper coupler).The no-tilt convertible
(Figure 6) can be converted from a rigid or “no-tilt”
configuration to a standard semi-oscillating configuration
for fleets with mixed trailers and needs for both types.

and side-to-side oscillation between the tractor and
semi-trailer (See Figure 7).The Kompensator fifth wheel
relieves the twisting force between the tractor and
trailer. This configuration has its effective side-to-side
oscillation pivot point located well above the fifth wheel
bearing surface (See Figure 8). It is intended for
applications where the center of gravity of the loaded
semi-trailer does not exceed 44˝ above the top surface
of the fifth wheel. Benefits include improved tire life and
a reduction in tractor, trailer, and tank cracks. Ideal
applications include rigid trailers (tanker, etc.) operated
on uneven and rough terrain.

Application:
Designed for applications such as bulk tankers, lowboys, B-trains,
bottom dumps, grain trailers, rigid trailers that don’t flex during
torsional loading.This rigidity during operation promotes problems
such as tank cracking and leaking, tractor frame cracks, and
premature drive tire wear.The patented Kompensator provides
torsional stress relief and promotes vehicle stability in trailers
where the center of gravity is up to 44 inches above the top plate
surface. Its unique cradle design provides side-to-side oscillation to
help relieve the torque and twist. Its spring cushions act as a
restoring force to provide stability after absorbing the strain and
pressure. It keeps the center of compensation above the fifth
wheel bearing surface and centered between the frame rails.

Features:
The frameless dump trailer requires a non-oscillating fifth
wheel because articulation is provided by the upper
coupler configuration.This fifth wheel can be converted
from the no-tilt model to the standard semi-oscillating
model for use with a conventionally equipped trailer by
simply removing the no-tilt shaft.This fifth wheel
accommodates fleets using both framed and frameless
trailers.

Pneumatic
Cylinder
Fifth Wheel Lock Release System for
Holland FW35, FW3500 and FleetMaster
Series Fifth Wheels.
A unique, safe, cab-mounted fifth
wheel lock release system.
Clean, Effortless
Operation
Eliminates the manual pulling force to
release the fifth wheel locks. No more
reaching in to grasp the release
handle with the risk of greasy
hands and clothes.
In-Cab Pneumatic
Operation
Drivers can easily and safely release the
fifth wheel locks from the tractor cab.
With a punch of a button, a
pneumatic cylinder on the fifth
wheel will open the locks.

XA-351-86-L-P – Includes fifth
wheel top plate XA-351-A-80-L
and RK-06559 Air Release kit
including control module.
Three-Step, Fail-Safe Operation
Also available with NoLube and
LowLube top plates.
Prevents unlocking of the fifth wheel when the
tractor and trailer are moving.
Retrofit Applications
The three step system assures that the fifth wheel
lock release can only be operated when the tractor
and trailer are standing still. The unique air-assisted
interlock design absolutely prevents accidental
release of the fifth wheel locks.
The Air Release system can be added to any XA-351
top plate assembly and any XA-3501 top plate
assembly produced after January 1, 1993. Order lot
RK-07814 for an XA-351 top plate, and RK-07370 for
an XA-3501 top plate.
Warranty
1.
Set the trailer parking brake to activate the Air
Release system.
2.
Turn the toggle switch (A) to the “ON” position.
That activates a visual light (B) and an audible
horn (C) indicating that the system is ready to
release.
3.
Push the fifth wheel Air Release button (D) in to
activate the valve, which forces air to the
pneumatic cylinder (E) on the fifth wheel, which
then opens the locks.
The Air Release system is backed by Holland’s
extensive, five-year parts and labor warranty,
unmatched in our industry.

Any tractor used for “Short Haul” (e.g., city pick-up and delivery) is to be considered a Moderate Duty Application.
A Kompensator fifth wheel is recommended for this application. The unique Kompensator fifth wheel helps relieve twist and
torque transmitted by the trailer. Benefits include improved tire life and a reduction in tractor, trailer and tank cracks. This fifth
wheel can only be used where the loaded c.g. of the trailer is no more than 44˝ (1100mm) above the fifth wheel.
24˝ long slide brackets recommended.
Severe Duty applications require “7500” Series brackets.
Severe Duty applications require “7000” Series slide plates.

Any tractor used for “Short Haul” (e.g., city pick-up and delivery) is to be considered a Moderate Duty Application.
The unique Kompensator fifth wheel helps relieve twist and torque transmitted by the trailer. Benefits include
improved tire life and a reduction is tractor, trailer and tank cracks. This fifth wheel can only be used where the
loaded c.g. of the trailer is no more than 44˝ (1100mm) above the fifth wheel.
24˝ long slide brackets recommended.
A fully oscillating fifth wheel should only be used when the c.g. is at or below the fifth wheel height.
Severe Duty applications require “7500” Series brackets.
Severe Duty applications require “7000” Series slide plates.

Dolly design will affect the proper choice of fifth wheel type. For example,
some single axle dollies (especially if they have a hinged tongue drawbar)
require the use of a rigid or “No-Tilt” fifth wheel. Most tandem axle dollies can
be equipped with a semi-oscillating fifth wheel. Check with the dolly

FIFTH WHEEL
LOCATION
A very important procedure, especially when using
a stationary fifth wheel, is determining its location
on the tractor. This is important to ensure proper
load distribution and overall vehicle combination
length. For proper vehicle steering stability, the fifth
wheel centerline must be located forward of the
rear axle on single axle tractors and forward of the
bogie centerline on tandem axle trailers.
Step 1
Determine the maximum allowable
kingpin load for the tractor, KPMAX
KPMAX = (Tractor Axle Capacities*) – (Tractor Curb Weight**)
IMPORTANT:
The fifth wheel should always be located forward
of the rear axle or bogie centerline to ensure
proper steering stability.
Failure to properly locate the
fifth wheel forward of the rear
axle or bogie centerline can
WARNING
adversely affect steering
stability potentially causing
the driver to lose control of
the vehicle.

ratings or the legal road weight limits.
** Road-ready curb weight, including all accessories
(fifth wheel, fuel, and driver), but without trailer or

Chart A, below. Now, measure the distance from
the back of the cab to the centerline of the rear

NOTE:
The CFW dimension includes an
additional 4˝ clearance for tractor and
trailer articulation.Additional clearance
may be required for items such as
reefers, exhaust, stacks, glad hand racks,
and headache racks. The LWC and DLWC
dimensions provide 3˝ of clearance
between the landing gear and tractor
tires assuming 10.00˝ x 20˝ tires.
Subtract 1˝ from DLWC for 22˝ tires.
Step 4
Locate the Fifth Wheel
The maximum forward fifth wheel location, DMAX,
was determined in Step 2 and based solely upon
weight distribution. However, locating the fifth
wheel at that position may not be possible because
the vehicle may not have adequate swing clearance
(as determined in Step 3).The fifth wheel should
be located between DMAX and the rear axle (bogie)
centerline depending upon the application while
still providing adequate swing clearance.
Proceed as follows:

C. Mark the DLWC location on the tractor frame.
D. Compare the markings.The fifth wheel
should be located between the rear axle
(bogie) centerline and the closer of DMAX,
DCFW, or DLWC.This will maintain adequate
swing clearance (see figure below).
In the example below, the fifth wheel should be
mounted between the centerline of the rear axle

Example #1: Stationary Fifth Wheel
A 15,000 lbs. road-ready curb weight tractor has
8,000 lbs. on the front axle (WF) and 7,000 lbs. on
the rear (WR). The front axle capacity is 12,000
lbs. (AF) while the rear tandem axle capacity (AR)
is 34,000 lbs.The tractor has a 148˝ wheel base
(WB) and an 80˝ C.A. The trailer is 102˝ wide
with a 36˝ kingpin setting and landing gear wheel

Result: In this example, the maximum fifth wheel
setting ahead of the rear axle, DCFW of 13.5˝ limits
the fifth wheel location to a maximum of 13.5˝
ahead of the bogie centerline to allow for cab to
trailer swing clearance. Therefore, the fifth wheel
should be located between the centerline of the
rear axle (bogie) and DCFW. The expected trailer
loads will help determine the ideal position of a
stationary fifth wheel in this 13.5˝ range.
STEP #3A
The required back of cab clearance, CFW, from
Chart A (page 45) is 6612⁄ ˝.The maximum fifth
wheel setting ahead of the rear axle for cab
clearance DCFW is 1312⁄ ˝, calculated as follows:
DCFW
= (C.A. – CFW)
DCFW
= (80˝ – 66.5˝)
DCFW

Example #2: Sliding Fifth Wheel
A 14,000 lbs. road-ready curb weight tractor has
8,000 lbs. on the front axle (WF) and 6,000 lbs. on
the rear (WR).The front axle capacity is 13,500
lbs. (AF) while the rear tandem axle capacity (AR)
is 34,000 lbs. The tractor has a 180˝ wheel base
(WB) and a 92˝ C.A. The trailer is 102˝ wide with
a 36˝ kingpin setting and landing gear wheel
clearance (LWC) of 92˝. A sliding fifth wheel with
24.5˝ travel is recommended (from chart on page
49).What length sliding fifth wheel is recommended
and where should it be positioned?
STEP #4
Mark DMAX, DCFW and DLWC on the tractor frame and
determine the fifth wheel location (see figure
below).

STEP #3A
The required back of cab clearance, CFW, from
Chart A (page 45) is 66.5˝.The maximum fifth
wheel setting ahead of the rear axle for cab
clearance DCFW is 13.5˝, calculated as follows:
DCFW
= (C.A. – CFW)
DCFW
= (92˝ – 66.5˝)
DCFW
= 25.5˝
STEP #3B
From Chart B (page 45), with a landing gear
clearance of 92˝, the maximum fifth wheel setting
ahead of the rear axle for landing gear clearance,
DLWC, is 28˝.
48
Result: In this example, the maximum fifth wheel
setting ahead of the rear axle for trailer-to-cab
clearance, DCFW of 25.5˝ limits the fifth wheel
location to a maximum of 25.5˝ ahead of the
bogie centerline to allow for cab to trailer swing
clearance when the fifth wheel is in the forward
most position.
Using the slide travel tables on the following page
to obtain a recommended style slide bracket, the
use of a 16.5˝ slide bracket will provide us with
24.5˝ slide travel, but will not exceed the 25.5˝
maximum.A longer bracket can be used, and might
be required depending upon the application, but
the available slide travel will be reduced as
indicated in the charts.

system that monitors the coupling process from
inside the cab. Magnetic proximity sensors
located on the fifth wheel top plate senses fifth
wheel and kingpin locking sequence, relaying
the data to the driver through an icon based
display in the cab.
Extra Capacity
The sum of the weight of an empty trailer(s) and
its payload.
General Over-the-Road Use
When used in this guide means, a fifth wheel
that is designed for multiple standard duty
highway applications.
ISL
Integrated Low Weight Slider
Inboard Angle Mount
The horizontal leg of the mounting angle sits on
the tractor frame.
Generally refers to a coupling device which has
strength capability greater than standard.
Fifth Wheel Height
The distance from the ground to the top of the
fifth wheel when it is level and parallel with the
ground. It can also refer to the height from the
tractor frame to the top of the fifth wheel. The
latter definition applies to data given in fifth
wheel literature.
Kingpin
The pin mounted through the center of the trailer
upper coupler (bolster plate) that mates with the
fifth wheel locks securing the trailer to the fifth
wheel.The configuration is controlled by industry
standards. See SAE J700 and SAE J848.

GLOSSARY
Kompensator® Fifth Wheel
A fifth wheel designed to relieve some of the
torque and twist that is generated by some
trailer designs, thereby reducing or eliminating
trailer frame cracks. Tractor tandem tire life is
also greatly increased due to improved traction.
The primary application for this fifth wheel is
for tankers in which the c.g. does not exceed 44
inches above the top surface of the fifth wheel.
LowLube
A fifth wheel with recesses cast into the top
plate into which lube free inserts are attached
to eliminate the use of top plate grease. Also
includes lube free inserts between top plate and
brackets to eliminate lubrication and a grease
fitting which permits periodic greasing of the
locks.
Manual Slide Release
The release mechanism for a sliding fifth wheel
which is operated by hand.
Mounting Bracket
