Mono-Lift suspension 100 pounds lighter
Mar 1, 2003 12:00 PM
Ridewell Suspensions introduces the Mono-Lift 225 auxiliary axle suspension with a 25,000-lb capacity for vocational truck applications. The non-steerable, air-ride/air-lift unit offers a weight savings of 100 pounds over previous units designed for 22,000- and 25,000-lb-capacity axles.
The Mono-Lift 225 is designed for ease of installation and maintenance. It offers a new patent-pending Speed Set alignment feature that simplifies adjustment. A patented, contoured axle seat optimizes axle weldment by decreasing stress concentrations; no U-bolts are required. The single-pivot design features Ridewell's Huckbolt-fastened monopivot bushing that can be manually installed or replaced with common shop tools. The lift air spring is fully encapsulated.
The Mono-Lift 225 is offered with high or low axle seats, drop-center or straight axles, 7.5" to 13.5" mounting heights, and a varied selection of wheel-end equipment with an ABS-ready option. The unit works with standard or low-profile tires. Future plans include a version for trailer applications.
