Weight loss program pays off for Reyco units
Jun 1, 2004 12:00 PM
Engineers at Tuthill Transport Technologies have slimmed down several Reyco heavy-duty suspensions.
Two Reyco van sliders, the Model 19AR/RS1062 (with trailer manufacturer-installed axles) and the Model 20AR/RS3062 (with Reyco axles) have each lost as much as 47 pounds. Much of the “slenderizing” process has come by the use of thinner but higher-strength materials in the suspension hangers.
Fixed-axle trailer suspensions have also benefited from these changes. The Reyco Models 20AR and 22AR now weigh as little as 485 pounds complete with axle. For more information, contact Tuthill, 1205 Industrial Park Dr, Mount Vernon MO 65712.
