Hendrickson announced the release of its Traxx Rod line of vocational torque rods. According to the company, the Traxx Rod achieves up to three times the life of a conventional forged or cast torque rod, and sets a new benchmark for vocational torque rods in weight and bushing walk-out performance.
Traxx Rod bushings and rod bodies are specifically designed for each capacity and application criteria, Hendrickson says, adding that the rod design is flexible and can accommodate a straddle or taper pin bushing and package with any hub size and length.
“The Traxx Rod Family of torque rods has set a new benchmark for durability and performance. With its fabricated construction, this lightweight solution is now the benchmark for heavy-duty applications worldwide,” said Gerry Remus, general manager of sales and business development for Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems.
