Meritor adds 12,500-lb rating for non-drive front steer axles

Meritor Inc is adding to its range of non-drive front steer axles in the commercial trucking industry with the introduction of a 12,500-pound rating for Meritor’s front steer axles. This new rating enhances steering control, improves durability, and lowers maintenance costs. Features and benefits of this non-drive front steer axle include:

•A draw-key design that offers greater lateral stability, more even loading, and greater retention for reduced wear

•Meritor bold-on kingpin cap that reduces contaminant ingress, which may increase wear and decrease service life

•Meritor steer bushings have more friction to optimize steer effort ease without front-axle vibration

The Meritor axle warranty for linehaul applications is five years or 750,000 miles with parts and labor included, and every claim is fully supported by an online warranty claim system. Meritor Advantage Plans offer extended coverage up to seven years in linehaul applications. Every Meritor axle is backed by service and support, with more than 6,000 distributor and dealer parts outlets in North America.
