Hendrickson launches HLC Series 1 air kits

Hendrickson offers versions for self-steerable and non-steerable applications, both of which it says drop-in to replace HAC series air kits.

The Auxiliary Axle Systems division of Hendrickson Specialty Products introduced the new HLC Series 1 Air Kits. According to Hendrickson, the new HLC Series is designed to be a drop-in replacement for the previous generation HAC Series.

Users can choose between two two different configurations: HLC-SSI, for self-steerable applications, and HLC-NSI for non-steerable applications. Hendrickson says the HLC-SSI is equipped with an electric-actuated toggle switch and possesses the ‘lift on reverse’ feature, while HLC-NSI is designed with a manual push-pull operation and is suited for applications that do not need to lift when in reverse. The company tells us both kits were tested to perform in extreme environmental conditions.

“We have worked with our customers, and designed a lift kit that is fully compatible with our earlier product line,” said Andrew Power, senior engineering manager at Hendrickson Auxiliary Axle Systems. “The HLC Series is configured to simplify the installation with color-coded quick-connect fittings and a relay that is now integrated, eliminating the need to mount in a separate location.”
