Kenworth adds Hendrickson HAULMAAX EX for Class 8 trucks

Suspension designed for many applications, such as dump, concrete mixer, and more, adding a new 52,000-lb capacity

Kenworth says it now offers the Hendrickson HAULMAAX EX as an option for its T880, W990, T680, and T480 models.

The Hendrickson next-generation, heavy-duty lightweight rubber suspension is designed for vocational applications such as dump, concrete mixer, refuse, logging, crane/boom, platform, and fire/rescue. The new suspension replaces the Hendrickson HAULMAAX family of 40,000- and 46,000-pound capacity suspensions and also adds a new 52,000-pound capacity.

In addition to the increased capacity range, the Hendrickson HAULMAAX EX provides a higher site rating and maintains the same weight and durability compared to its predecessor, the manufacturer said. The suspension utilizes a unique rubber spring design that balances empty-ride quality and loaded stability. Angled bolster springs and a unique progressive load spring provide extra stability for demanding applications such as refuse, concrete mixers and dumps.

“The Hendrickson HAULMAAX EX is an excellent choice for Kenworth vocational customers seeking a lightweight, durable suspension equipped to handle rugged operating conditions and provide a smooth on-highway driving experience,” said Genevieve Bekkerus, Kenworth marketing director. “Now that this suspension line is also available with a 52,000-pound suspension rating, Kenworth customers operating in heavy applications have a viable new suspension option to consider.”
