Ridewell announces the expansion of the RAR-240 series of trailer air-ride suspensions

Ridewell announces the expansion of the RAR-240 series of trailer air-ride suspensions. Now available for order are yoke-mount suspensions designed specifically for use with Ridewell brand axles with Wabco PAN 22 air disc brakes. The new suspensions can also be used with IMT’s axles with Wabco Pan 22, 19, or 17 ADB, or Haldex ADB. Two new designs are available for order.

The first design has a yoke trailing arm beam that allows the brake actuator to be placed under the tail. A benefit of this design is that no modifications to the trailer frame beyond those typically done for a standard RAR-240 yoke suspension are required. Also, no change to the normal frame transition geometry is required. It is compatible only with Wabco PAN 22 or Haldex ADB.

When brake actuator ground clearance and protection are critical, the newly designed yoke trailing arm below has a “banana beam” that allows the brake actuator to be tucked between the beam and trailer frame. This design requires a more squared-off frame transition to allow clearance for the actuator.
