Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems announced it partnered with Navistar to offer Haulmaax EX as part of the chassis enhancements of the truck maker’s International HX model.

With the updated vehicle’s release, Hendrickson will be launching its next-generation, heavy-duty rubber suspension to address the growing demand for rubber suspensions across all vocational applications, according to the Woodbridge, Ill.-based company. The suspension is designed to provide increased site rating, expanded capacity ranges and improved durability — with up to a 70,000-pound site rating for the 46,000-pound capacity suspension.

“Hendrickson utilized our industry-leading analysis and validation techniques to ensure Haulmaax EX would meet these rigorous demands, minimize maintenance requirements and deliver the lightest weight vocational suspension on the market,” Ashley Dudding, director of engineering for Hendrickson, said in a release.

Hendrickson, a Boler company, is a global manufacturer and supplier of medium- and heavy-duty mechanical, elastomeric and air suspensions; integrated and nonintegrated axle and brakes systems; and tire pressure control systems, among other components. — Transport Topics
