Hendrickson revealed its new “virtually maintenance-free” Quaantum FX integrated air-ride trailer suspension systems at the TMC meeting in Tampa last month.
The Quaantum FX5 features Hendrickson's new HNP wheel-end system, its HXS extended-service brakes, and long-life shocks and air springs. It comes with a 5-yr. “hubcap-to-hubcap” limited warranty covering parts and labor.
Hendrickson says the HNP hub uses ADI (Dura-Light) material for “one of the most durable and lightweight wheel ends on the market.” It incorporates twin “N” bearings, an “R” seal, Hendrickson's proprietary Precision320 nut system and a self-centering hubcap for a completely rebuildable system.
The Quaantum FX7 features Hendrickson's HUS wheel ends, HXS extended-service brakes, long-life shocks and air springs. It incorporates Hendrickson's Precision320 nut system and a self-centering hubcap. It comes with a 5-yr. “hubcap-to-hubcap” limited warranty and an additional 2-yr. warranty on the HUS wheel ends, resulting in seven years of parts and labor coverage.
The FX7 also includes the WEM (wheel end monitor), which Hendrickson says constantly monitors wheel-bearing condition and signals bearing spalling by flashing a red light when activated with a magnet.
Both suspension systems will become available this summer.
