Hendrickson’s Ultimaax suspension available on Miller Industries’ Century M100 Rotator

Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems‘ Ultimaax advanced severe-duty rubber suspension in the 60,000-lb. capacity rating will be available on Miller Industries’ new Century M100 Rotator.

Ultimaax is an advanced severe-duty rubber suspension that the company says is ideal for fleets that need enhanced stability, handling and ride quality.

“In Miller’s Class 8 program, our demand for stability, ride height, suspension recovery, minimum lateral roll and capacity is huge,” said John L. Hawkins, vice president of heavy-duty products at Miller Industries. “With the upcoming introduction of Miller’s M100, we needed a suspension that offered a GVW rating higher than 52K while still delivering driver comfort. The Ultimaax 60K suspension is a perfect example of how Hendrickson listened to a need, worked with all parties to be responsive, and together, targeted the solution to meet the goal. And now we are seeing that teamwork come together with the introduction of the Ultimaax suspension on Miller’s M100 Rotator.”

Available in capacities of 46,000, 52,000, 60,000 and 70,000 lbs., Ultimaax is approved for a variety of vocational and severe-duty applications
