Mack Trucks Inc now offers Hendrickson's Airtek integrated front axle and air suspension on its Vision tractors.
Airtek helps protect drivers from bumps and potholes, providing a smooth ride while reducing noise, vibration, and harshness.
The axle-section and leaf-spring geometry produce improvements of up to 30% in ride and 64% in roll stability, in addition to 35-45 pounds of weight savings compared with standard front axle and suspension.
Some fleets have claimed substantial increase in steer tire life by using Airtek, says Hendrickson. The unit's rubber suspension bushings eliminate lubrication requirements, while the two-piece knuckle steering design simplifies servicing.
