DANA STEER AXLES
Dana Spicer’s D-2000F and D-2200F steer axles are compatible with disc or drum brakes, offer a 5-inch drop option and come rated to 22,800 pounds. Their sturdier steering kingpin assemblies and patented seal and boot designs decrease contamination and increase lube retention, meaning less maintenance and longer life. The 5-inch drop allows a lower chassis, making the vehicle easier to enter and exit. The axles also come with a “power rib” that adds to the overall strength.
ENTRY STEP AND STORAGE BOX
Road Gear’s all-aluminum cab entry step and storage box is offered in diamond plate or smooth finishes and in 24-, 36- and 48-inch lengths. The box has stainless steel T-handles and hinges.
Eaton’s UltraShift Line-Haul Performance 14-speed automatic transmission makes driving easier while delivering all the performance of Eaton’s manual transmissions, after which the LHP is modeled. In its “low” setting, the LHP downshifts early and upshifts only at peak rpm, smoothing the toughest hills for less experienced drivers. The LHP hauls up to 110,000 pounds, is rated to 1,750 lb.-ft of torque, and can be driven manually with “clutchless” shifts. Options include push button or console shift.

Hendrickson’s Vantraax family of air-ride trailer suspension systems now includes a tapered-beam 46,000-pound capacity configuration, the HKANT 46K, which increases frame strength while trimming 125 pounds from the system. The model unites tapered-beam and large-diameter axle technologies. The system delivers a 15 percent increase in bending and torsional stiffness compared to the 5-inch axle tube, while reducing tube deflection under loads. Hendrickson now also offers a 72.5-inch axle spacing option to meet the needs of ready-mix contractors and a tall ride height Haulmaxx for 6-by-6 applications.
