Hendrickson has included the functionality of its Rotating Bar Pin End Bushing in its newly released Equalizing Beam, the company announced Monday.
The Rotating Bar Pin End Bushing allows for the adjustment the angle of the pin to match the axle pinion angle for a quick and easy beam installation, says David McCleave, Hendrickson’s aftermarket director.
Along with the rotating bar pin benefit, the rotating bar pin bushing utilizes the same proprietary rubber material and bonding composition as the standard end bushing leading to longer component life. Under load, Hendrickson says the rotating bar pin will lock into place, eliminating inner bushing wear which contributes to greater component service life.
The Genuine Parts’ Equalizing Beam is the same beam used in production; providing the structural integrity and functionality to maintain original system performance. Hendrickson Equalizing Beams are made of a high strength steel formula exclusive to Hendrickson; enabling long component service life and a lightweight design for greater payloads.
