Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems is expanding its Steertek NXT portfolio of fabricated front steer axles to include 10K and 12K capacities for the medium-duty truck and bus segments.
These new configurations are now available to order on International MV trucks and IC Bus CE Series buses as optional equipment. Hendrickson says that its design and manufacturing process saves weight compared to traditional I-beam axles while combining strength, maneuverability and reduced maintenance. These new axles come with a service interval of 40,000 miles and a 10-year, 1-million-mile warranty. The Steertek NXT axle will be released on April 15.
Available in capacities from 10,000 to 14,600 lbs. per axle, Steertek NXT is approved for on-highway & medium-duty truck bus and motor home applications, the company says.
