“To help customers meet their requirements in demanding vocational applications, Kenworth continues to expand its suspension offering with quality products,” says Doug Powell, Kenworth medium-duty marketing manager. “Kenworth’s T270 and T370 4×4, front drive axle trucks, specified with a Hendrickson PRIMAAX EX suspension, offer excellent performance and low life-cycle cost for vocational operators who prefer running medium-duty trucks to get the job done.”
The Hendrickson PRIMAAX EX suspension is ideal for vocational and severe duty applications, Kenworth says. Key features include higher roll stiffness; reduced roll steer coefficient; increased lift capacity; no-lube, heavy duty bushings for reduced maintenance; and redesigned U-beam assembly, air spring, torque rod bracket and frame bracket for increased robustness and durability.
The suspension, which has a 15.5-in. ride height, is available with the Kenworth T270 and T370 4×4 straight trucks in ratings of 23,000 lbs. and 26,000 lbs. with a single rear axle, the company says.
