Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems, Woodridge, Illinois, announced Oct. 26 that it has partnered with Hagerstown, Indiana-based Autocar to offer the Haulmaxx EX as a part of the chassis enhancements for ACX and DC-64 models. 

According to Hendrickson, Haulmaxx EX provides the versatility needed for trucks and tractors that operate both on- and off-highway. The suspension’s equalizing beam distributes the load equally between both axles in off-road and uneven terrain conditions. The design eliminates fixed center bushing pivot points to reduce wheel hop. When paired with Hendrickson Traax Rods, stability is enhanced and articulation increased for improved on- and off-highway operation.

“Customers today expect more out of their vocational suspensions. Haulmaxx EX exceeds expectations by expanding on the capabilities of the current Haulmaxx design. With up to a 70,000-pound site rating for the 46,000-pound capacity suspension, Haulmaxx EX is extremely rugged, supporting the most demanding vocational applications and offering capacities of 40,000 pounds, 46,000 pounds and now 52,000 pounds,” says Ashley Dudding, director of engineering for Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems. “Hendrickson utilized our industry-leading analysis and validation techniques to ensure Haulmaxx EX would meet these rigorous demands, minimize maintenance requirements, and deliver the lightest weight vocational suspension on the market.”
