Jost fifth wheel now standard on Freightliner trucks

Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) says it will offer the JOST International JSK36 lightweight fifth wheel as the standard fifth wheel for all Freightliner truck models. The JSK36 is also available as a published option for the Western Star 4700 and 4900 truck models.

The JOST JSK36 fifth wheel features a lightweight design that also offers safety, ease of maintenance and reliability. The JSK36 features the same simple JOST locking mechanism that customers have become familiar and comfortable with. JOST, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of fifth wheels, has partnered with DTNA since 2002.

“JOST International’s fifth wheel solutions are an ideal complement to our products. We depend on our partners to provide value-added solutions that contribute to our customers’ uptime,” says Mary Aufdemberg, director of product marketing for Freightliner Trucks. “The low lifetime cost of ownership of JOST fifth wheels makes JOST a smart choice for our customer’s applications.”

“This new agreement with DTNA represents a significant advance in our domestic position,” says Rich Carroll, vice president, sales and marketing for JOST International. “JOST is the leading manufacturer of fifth wheels around the globe and this partnership positions us well in our progress towards market share leadership in North America.”
