Reyco Granning introduces LiftMaster axles

Reyco Granning has introduced a new auxiliary lift axle family called the LiftMaster. The axle family includes the ALAP-13 (PS) steerable and ALAP-13 (NS) non-steerable models. These new models are designed for the heavy duty class 7 and 8 market and are rated at 13,200 lb. capacity. The new models take the place of previous Reyco Granning models L132 (steerable) and L130 (non-steerable).

“Fleets are always looking for ways to increase payload and therefore more revenue, but they don’t want that at the expense of higher maintenance costs,” says John Hinz, Reyco Granning’s chief engineer for powered vehicles. “We were able to remove 75 lbs. in the steerable version and approximately 100 lbs. from the non-steerable version. And we did it while still passing our most stringent tests for vertical, lateral and longitudinal forces.” Hinz added that the LiftMaster uses “a large Bilstein gas-charged, monotube steer damper. This eliminates heat build-up and cavitation and maintains constant control of the steering mechanism,” he said.

Other standard features include an automatic lift function in reverse, eliminating the chance that a driver might forget to manually lift the axle.

The LiftMaster series is covered by a 36-month 300,000-mile parts only warranty, and a 12-month, 100,000-mile labor warranty for the main structural components, including hangers, beams, clip plates and axle saddles, torque arms and bellow pads. The axles are also covered by 12-month, 100,000-mile parts only warranty, and 6-month 12,000-mile labor warranty for other air spring lift axle suspension components, such as valves, fasteners, bushings, and components not stated specifically which are provided by Reyco Granning.
