Hendrickson Paralift lift axle system

Trailers | January 18, 2012

Hendrickson trimmed more than 90 lb. from its Paralift lift axle system with the production of the refined Paralift PST. By fitting the Paralift PST with a new axle, the company says it improved driveline clearance and wheel cut, and retained the durability and versatility of the 20,000-lb. steerable lift axle system. The Paralift PST delivers 12 in. of total travel with 9 in. of lift in ride heights from 9.5 to 13.5 in., all in a 28-in. package space. Zero-torsion, trailing-arm brushings help eliminate bushing wind-up and allow for the two lift-spring configuration.
