Hendrickson introduces Traxx Rod torque rods

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.
