Axle lowers maintenance, raises payload
Oct 1, 2002 12:00 PM
The new UniMax front axle from Mack Trucks Inc minimizes maintenance requirements and increases payload capacities, while providing operators new levels of control and stability.
Available in 18,000- and 20,000-lb capacities, UniMax has unitized wheel hubs that virtually eliminate axle maintenance costs. Wheel hubs are permanently sealed with synthetic long-lasting grease providing protection and lubrication for wheel seals and bearings. Unitized hubs eliminate endplay adjustments to reduce maintenance further. The lightweight UniMax allows operators to optimize payload capacities with no sacrifice in axle durability. Additional features include new levels of control and stability while operating at severe-duty sites. This control feature is the result of the new, tapered kingpin design that, again, requires no adjustments.
