Ridelite unit designed for ease of service
Mar 1, 2003 12:00 PM
Ridewell Suspensions has come out with the Ridelite, a new lightweight 25,000-lb-capacity integrated trailer air suspension system designed for platform, tank, dump, grain, and specialized trailers. The system offers a variety of 5" round, non-captured axles to allow for axle maintenance or replacement while preserving other parts.
Ridelite is designed for ease of installation and serviceability. Its double-bonded manual clamp-in pivot bushing can be installed or replaced with common shop tools; no special presses are required. The new Ridelite pivot bolt requires just 450 ft-lb of torque.
This unit includes a patent-pending Speed Set alignment feature that allows for 1" adjustment at the hanger. Pre-mounted shock brackets and attachable, no-weld valve mounts assure ease of installation. A patented contoured axle seat optimizes axle weldment by decreasing stress concentrations; no U-bolts are required.
