U.S. Xpress equips trailers with SAF-Holland air disc brakes

SAF-Holland announced U.S. Xpress is equipping 1,800 of its new Wabash National and Hyundai Translead trailers with SAF ULX40 Slider Suspension Axle Systems complete with its new P89 air disc brake.

“The technology aboard our trucks has been placed there because we want our drivers to focus on the job at hand – safely and efficiently delivering our customers’ cargo,” said Gerald Mead, senior vice president of maintenance at U.S. Xpress. “The New P89 air disc brake technology allows us to further this commitment to safety.”

According to the company, the ULX40 is an integrated, lightweight spring ride suspension and axle system. The New P89 air disc brake comprises standard features including heavy duty vented rotors, premium bearings and seals, and the proven SAF SBS 2220 caliper – all with a five-year warranty.

“The New P89 air disc brake builds on the confidence that we have already established with SAF-Holland, having used the SAF suspension for over four years,” said Mead.

“Knowing that U.S. Xpress focuses on incorporating leading-edge technology, we are pleased that they chose our P89 air disc brake solution,” said Jeff Talaga, vice president of sales & strategic development, Americas, SAF-Holland. “We understand the high standard of quality they require, and appreciate the confidence they place in us.”
