CV Show 2014: Hendrickson to reveal lighter mid-lift axles

Axle manufacturer Hendrickson will use the CV Show to reveal its next generation of lighter mid-lift axles.

The new axles are 63kgs lighter, explained European MD Mark Page, for 22.5-, 19.5- and 17.5-inch wheels. “UK sales growth has been in double digits, with an increasing number of customers choosing Hendrickson’s innovative smaller wheel sizes to allow additional payload and increased packaging flexibility,” he said.

Page further added that the MLA2 can reduce unladen weight by up to 200kg on a typical OEM unit by eliminating the need for a second steered axle.

  • The CV Show takes place at the Birmingham NEC between 29 April and 1 May.
