East Manufacturing offers Hendrickson MAXX22T as air disc brake package option

East Manufacturing has announced that the Hendrickson MAXX22T trailer air disc brake with Dura-Light hub will be offered as the preferred air disc brake package option on East trailers. The MAXX22T with Dura-Light hub will be the preferred ADB option but additional brands are available.

According to the company, MAXX22T features include the lightweight Dura-Light hub with a premium e-coat to enhance corrosion resistance, a new hub-to-rotor connection reduces the time and effort required for stud changes in the field, as well as a simplified bolt-on dust shield design.

“At East, we put our customers first, providing them with unsurpassed quality and the best technology,” said Dave de Poincy, president of East Manufacturing Corp. “This new air disc brake package will give our customers peace of mind when it comes to the braking system.”

The air disc brake package option allows East to provide customers with a lightweight, reliable disc brake option. The MAXX22T trailer air disc brakes are compatible when tractors are equipped with drum brakes or other disc brake brands. East will continue to offer additional industry name brand air disc brake options with Hendrickson’s HXL5 upgraded five-year warranty, including Bendix and WABCO PAN22.
