Hendrickson launches new suspension and axle solutions for the Terex T 110 Truck Crane
Hendrickson (Itasca, Illinois) announced availability of a 48,000 pound tandem front air suspension and axle system and a 60,000 pound capacity tandem rear air suspension. These new products will serve as the standard front and rear systems for the new Terex® T 110 Truck Crane.
The new front suspension and axle system is designed and manufactured to meet the specific needs of the truck crane market. The system includes the STEERTEK NXT fabricated axle, designed to achieve durability, rigid strength and weight efficiency when compared with traditional axles. STEERTEK NXT’s box-shaped cross section resists horizontal, vertical and twisting forces while providing a significant weight savings.
The air suspension is designed to greatly improve vehicle handling while utilizing high volume air springs that will increase driver comfort and equipment protection. This suspension and axle combination saves hundreds of pounds as compared to current industry solutions.
Hendrickson’s new rear air suspension reaches capacities of 30,000 pounds per axle with overall weight savings of up to 300 pounds compared to typical suspensions. This suspension utilizes Hendrickson’s leaf spring technology in conjunction with air springs and shocks to achieve a tuned suspension system for improved roll stiffness and comfortable ride characteristics. Drivers benefit as the system provides predictable handling when performing maneuvers. The suspension design allows for lower maintenance with the elimination of the transverse torque rod and a QUIK-ALIGN® feature for ease of alignment.
“We identified an opportunity for a purpose built air suspension and axle system that saves weight and improves the performance, addressing the unique needs of the crane market. Delivering improved ride quality and driver handling are a direct result of listening closely to customer needs while applying the ride and handling expertise that Hendrickson is known for in the industry.” said Gerry Remus, business unit director for Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems.
