The Haulmaxx suspension is available in 40,000- and 46,000-lb. capacities on new Kenworth truck orders placed with Kenworth dealers.

"We think that this new, heavy-duty suspension will be especially of interest to customers involved in construction, refuse and logging," said Brian Lindgren, Kenworth vocational segment manager.

"The weight savings with Haulmaxx can result in over 500 pounds of additional payload in comparison to competitive steel spring suspensions," added Sean Coleman, marketing manager for Hendrickson Truck Suspension Systems. "In addition, Haulmaxx delivers innovative ride solutions that improve traction, reduce maintenance costs, and can improve profits for customers."
