Vantraax family grows by two models
Mar 1, 2004 12:00 PM
Hendrickson has added top-mount tridem and low-ride height tandem configurations to its Vantraax family of trailer slider systems. Vantraax incorporates Intraax air suspension system and patented K-2 slider technology for durability with weight savings.
With overall capacities of 52,000 pounds, tridems come with axle ratings of 23,000 pounds or the heavier-duty 25,000 pounds in ride heights ranging from 14" to 19".
Ideal for drop-frame van applications, the low-ride Vantraax tandem offers ride heights from 6.5" to 12" in a 46,000-lb-capacity system.
The K slider designs provide a superior strength-to-weight ratio for longer life and full-length pads for durability and easy movement. The patented “K” bracing reduces weight while increasing durability. This simple design also opens interior spacing for easier plumbing and maintenance.
Vantraax features Hendrickson's rigid axle/beam connection combined with the Tri-Functional Bushing resulting in a combination of ride softness and stability.
Options include Hendrickson's pneumatic Quik-Draw, which does away with manual slider pin pulling, and the Tiremaax automatic tire inflation system.
