Vantraax delivers flexibility to carry loads
Feb 1, 2006 12:00 PM
Hendrickson's new single-axle slider delivers all the advantages of the Vantraax for various refrigerated and dry van trailer suspension configurations. The Vantraax (HKANT 23K) provides a lightweight tapered-beam, 23,000-lb-capacity system that delivers flexibility in axle spacing and enhanced load distribution, especially on single-axle trailers.
Combine Vantraax single-axle systems for double the adjustability in tandem-axle trailers, allowing axle sets from widespread to closed spaced, or use it as a third axle with a tandem suspension system. However, the HKANT 23K is not currently approved for multi-trailer applications.
Standard with Hendrickson's Advanced Axle/Beam Technology (AXT), the single-axle slider teams tapered-beams and a large-diameter axle (LDA), which increases the diameter of a traditional axle to 5¾".
The Vantraax single-axle comes standard with Quik-Draw, a fully pneumatic, pin-pull mechanism to simplify slider repositioning. For applications not requiring a sliding subframe, a “fixed-pin” option allows permanent setting of the rigid structure in a specific location under the trailer, eliminating the need for welding or bolting the box to the trailer frame.
