Kenworth adds Neway ADZ suspension
May 1, 2012 12:00 PM
Kenworth has added the Neway ADZ rear air suspension from SAF-Holland.
The ADZ suspension is for typical heavy-duty applications such as construction trucks, loggers, and fire apparatus and emergency vehicles. This suspension also is for severe-duty applications where heavy vertical loads, high gross combination weights, high-torque drivetrains, high center-of-gravity loads, and significant off-road travel are expected.
Available in 23,000- and 26,000-lb capacities per axle, the ADZ is engineered for independent single suspension mounting that allows for single-, tandem-, or tridem-axle truck or tractor applications.
The ADZ series, which replaces the AD series suspension for over-the-road applications, incorporates a simplified lightweight V-rod construction that replaces the traditional track and torque rods. A new integral lower control arm module provides improved roll stability for high center-of-gravity load vehicles. The ADZ series also offers a weight savings in a typical installation of about 250 pounds per axle.
“Kenworth is offering the Neway ADZ series suspension in both 23K and 26K per axle versions for the Kenworth C500, T440, T470, T800, and W900,” said Alan Fennimore, Kenworth vocational marketing manager.
