Raised-center Intraax is 100 pounds lighter
Aug 1, 2004 12:00 PM
The raised-center Intraax extends all benefits of an integrated trailer suspension system to operators running this configuration on rear-discharge tankers. This Intraax slashes weight by about 100 pounds compared with previous models while strengthening axle connections and system durability.
After a phased launch, the system will offer 23,000- and 25-000-lb-capacity models for 77.5" and 71.5" tracks in top-mount configurations and a range of ride heights from 13.5" to 19".
The patented Intraax system features the first standard trailer Cam Tube System to reduce S-cam maintenance and exceptionally tight axle tolerances to help stretch fuel mileage and tire life.
Fleets and owner-operators can customize their Intraax systems with a selection of Ready-to-Roll options, including an automatic tire inflation system, a long-life wheel end, HLS (Hendrickson Long-life System), and HXS (Hendrickson Extended Service) brakes.
