Hendrickson has added a 54-in wide box to its Vantraax family of slider suspension systems for wide-based single tires.

Designed for dry freight, refrigerated and specialty vans, a single tire configuration combined with the Vantraax system could save over 350 lbs per trailer, the manufacturer said.

Hendrickson offers a wide box in a 40,000-lb capacity with an 83.5-in axle track with all standard equipment and options. The system uses the Intraax air suspension system and K-2 slider technology that contributes to durability and weight reduction, the company said.

The system also utilizes an axle-beam connection paired with Tri-Functional Bushing for ride softness and stability, Hendrickson said.

In other news, the company has enhanced its website to offer customers and users more convenience. It features a new aftermarket section as well as bumper and lift axle configurator tools.
