Western Star Truck Sales Inc announced two new suspension options for its truck models and configurations.
The first — a Neway 60,000-lb-capacity AD 260 Tandem air suspension system — is available for all Western Star truck models using Dana D60-190 axles, and contributes to the vehicles' road-holding and handling and positive axle alignment, virtually eliminating tire hop and enhancing traction. The Neway system also provides predictable roll stiffness for high center of gravity loads — particularly important for front and rear discharge mixers.
The 40,000-lb TufTrac All Wheel Drive (AWD) vocational suspension is also an option for the Western Star 4800 with 40,000-lb axles. Specifically designed for on- and off-road high-articulation operations where it's important to navigate bumps, ridges, and washboard without bottoming out, the 40,000-lb TufTrac mounting is a lighter, more affordable alternative to the 46,000-lb option. Additional benefits of the 40,000-lb TufTrac include a uniform load over each wheel, maximum traction, and a smooth and quiet ride.
Both the Neway AD 260 Tandem and 40,000-pound TufTrac suspensions are available to order.
