SAF-HOLLAND Introduces Neway LSZ Auxiliary Steerable Lift Axle Suspension System
Mar 6 14
SAF-HOLLAND introduced its 13.5k capacity, NEWAY LSZ Auxiliary Steerable Lift Axle Suspension System. The company also announced it has completed a strategic branding exercise that adds focus and clarity to the SAF-HOLLAND brand and global product brands. As a result, brands are better defined and positioned to the global markets. Implementation of the new brand strategies increases SAF-HOLLAND's focus on the needs of end users. With a 17.5-inch package size, the LSZ's revolutionary design is a minimum of 4 inches up to 10 inches shorter than comparable lift axles. This rugged, yet compact, design offers customers application versatility, enables easy installation and service, and provides extra frame rail space for component packaging and options. The Super Chamber., lift on the LSZ outperforms traditional air springs by providing a quick and reliable 4-second lift speed. This unique design is more durable than competitive lifts, and provides a stronger and more consistent lift force that keeps the axle securely stowed. The Super Chamber position provides increased protection from road hazards and easier access for servicing. The LSZ's rolling lobe air springs are positioned at an angle, delivering a superior spring rate for increased stability and ride quality. Its parallelogram design maintains precise steering geometry while reducing tire wear. The rugged design utilizes a kingpin assembly with spherical bearings, which eliminate thrust bearings that often require shimming and reaming. As a result, service requirements are greatly reduced.
