Hendrickson HAULMAAX

Hendrickson’s HAULMAAX® is a premium rubber suspension designed for vocational applications such as refuse, concrete mixers and dump, where durability, lightweight and driver comfort are essential. HAULMAAX’s innovative low-maintenance design utilizes rubber bolster springs coupled with progressive load springs that provide a superior combination of empty ride quality and loaded stability. The lightweight design offers up to 690 lbs. of weight savings versus competitive vocational rear tandem suspension. In addition, up to 17 inches of diagonal articulation help keep the axle in traction for superb off-road mobility. Suspension weight is reduced for greater payloads and improved durability through innovative design, higher strength materials and advanced manufacturing methods. Proven with extensive vehicle durability and laboratory testing, HAULMAAX delivers the reliability and quality you’ve come to expect from Hendrickson, the leader in suspension technology. The updated HAULMAAX spring system easily adjusts to the load for an enhanced combination of empty-ride quality and loaded stability. Extra wide bolster spring centers and a unique progressive load spring provide exceptional stability for demanding applications. Coupled with Hendrickson’s lightweight and durable COMPOSILITE® EX – Steerable lift axle suspension and you have a winning combination touting less weight, increased durability and lower cost of ownership for the Vocational Class 8 Industry. COMPOSILITE EX increased durability originates from the Inset Lower Beams which optimize lateral stiffness. The Zero-Torsion Rubber Bushings provide increased durability and bushing life. Aluminum upper beams help provide a total suspension weight of 835 pounds – a reduction of 13 pounds. COMPOSILITE EX is available with Drum or Air Disc Brakes: such as Bendix, Meritor and coming soon, Hendrickson MAXX22T™.
