The ULTIMAAX advanced severe-duty rubber suspension in the 60,000-pound capacity rating from Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems will be available on Miller Industries' new Century M100 Rotator, the companies report.  The ULTIMAAX-equipped M100 will be on display April 8-10 at the Tow Show in Orlando, Fla. Additionally, Miller will be hosting a street party on April 9, during the show, to display their trucks in action and give attendees an up-close and personal look. 

“In Miller’s Class 8 program, our demand for stability, ride height, suspension recovery, minimum lateral roll, and capacity is huge,” John L. Hawkins, vice president, heavy-duty products at Miller Industries, said. “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.”

ULTIMAAX is an advanced severe-duty rubber suspension ideal for fleets that need enhanced stability, handling, and ride quality, even in the most extreme environments.

“The Miller M100 Rotator on the Peterbilt 389 chassis marks the first new production vehicle in North America to feature the ULTIMAAX suspension at the 60,000 - pound capacity, and we are very excited to be able to offer a great suspension solution to a valued partner like Miller Industries,” stated Sean Whitfield, director of marketing for Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems.   

Available in capacities of 46,000, 52,000, 60,000 and 70,000 pounds, ULTIMAAX is approved for a variety of vocational and severe-duty applications. For additional information on ULTIMAAX, please contact Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems at hendrickson-intl.com.
