Hendrickson recently introduced the new HLC Series 1 air kits. The HLC Series is designed as a drop-in replacement for the previous-generation HAC Series and supports ease of installation.

“We have worked with our customers and designed a lift kit that is fully compatible with our earlier product line,” said Andrew Power, senior engineering manager at Hendrickson Auxiliary Axle Systems. “The HLC Series is configured to simplify the installation with color-coded, quick-connect fittings and a relay that is now integrated, eliminating the need to mount in a separate location.”

Customers can choose between two different configurations: HLC-SSI for self-steerable applications and HLC-NSI for non-steerable applications. The HLC-SSI is equipped with an electric-actuated toggle switch and possesses the "lift on reverse" feature. The HLC-NSI is designed with a manual push-pull operation and is suited for applications that do not need to lift when in reverse.

Both kits have been environmentally tested in extreme conditions and are built to perform under demanding applications.

Last week, Hendrickson released Roadmaax Z, its lightest 46,000-lb.-capacity rear air suspension, at the NTEA tradeshow in Indianapolis, Indiana.
