SAF-Holland has developed a new axle lift technology as an option on its CBX40 tandem axle slider suspension system, which the company expects to be available to most trailer OEMs this month.

The Auto-PosiLift pairs the CBX PosiLift axle lift feature with an electronic control unit (ECU) and air valve system on a tandem slider suspension, creating an automated axle lift function that complies with DOT regulations.

“The integration of proven Auto-PosiLift technology on our…SAF CBX40 slider suspensions is a major step forward in providing our varying load fleet customers with a unique systems solutions that not only enhances the competitive position of their operation, but offers additional driver safety and convenience features,” Randy Flanagan, SAF-Holland trailer systems director of sales & marketing, says.

The Auto-PosiLift was originally developed for multi-stop beverage distribution, but the company says is it offers ideal for fuel savings, reduced tire-wear, and reduced toll charges across multiple applications. 

The system is programmed to read the air pressure in the rear axle air springs at each pick-up and delivery, and automatically  determines to raise the front axle or keep the front axle in the down position.
