Hendrickson has partnered with Navistar to offer its next-generation rubber suspension, the Haulmaax EX, as a part of the chassis enhancements to the International HX vocational truck.
Hendrickson’s next-generation, heavy-duty rubber suspension, the Haulmaax EX, will be the standard rubber suspension offering for the HX, addressing the growing demand for rubber suspensions across all vocational applications, the company said. The Haulmaax EX suspension is optimized to provide increased site ratings, expanded capacity ranges, and improved durability.
The design features up to a 70,000-pound site rating for the 46,000-pound-capacity suspension. Available capacities include 40,000, 46,000, and 52,000 lb.
The suspension’s equalizing beam distributes the load equally between both axles in off-road and uneven terrain conditions. And the design eliminates fixed center bushing pivot points to reduce wheel hop.
Stability is further enhanced when paired with Hendrickson Traax Rods, increasing articulation in on/off-road conditions.
