Reyco Granning’s RideMaster family of fixed-axle air ride trailer suspensions for heavy-duty fixed-axle applications includes two integrated axle models containing narrow bushings and three wide-bushing U-bolt axle connection models. The RideMaster family is designed to allow customers to spec suspensions for any load from 20,000 to 30,000 pounds per axle and to further customize their equipment with a choice of bushing widths and mounting options. The suspensions feature trifunctional hanger bushings for added life, bushing options of 4.5 inches narrow and 6 inches wide, cast-cap narrow I-beam mounts, optional weld-on and bolt-on hangers, mounting heights from 6.5 to 19 inches and up to 8 inches of axle travel.

Bridgestone’s Ecopia series of fuel-efficient tires are designed to reduce overall tire wear costs by fostering retreading. Five tires in the Ecopia series are complemented with equivalent Bandag FuelTech retreads to reduce lifecycle costs.
NanoPro-Tech polymer helps control particle movement by bonding the tread’s carbon black more securely at an atomic level, which reduces flexing and related energy loss. The Fuel Saver sidewall compound runs cooler, while the IntelliShape sidewall – found in the M710 Ecopia drive radial and R197 Ecopia trailer tires – contains less bead filler volume, which helps lower tire weight, improving fuel economy and conserving natural resources. The R283 Ecopia steer tire’s casing life is extended due to a Defense Side Groove that helps create uniform pressure along the footprint at the shoulder and helps extend tread life. A High Rigidity Tread Pattern helps extend wear, while a Waved Belt design in Greatec Ecopia tires helps improve durability, contributing to a more retreadable casing; Turn-In-Ply technology also helps enhance durability and retreadability over the casing’s life. All these features remain after retreading, extending both the fuel efficiency benefits and tire life.
B710 FuelTech drive and B197 FuelTech trailer retreads complement the Ecopia drive and trailer tires. For users of wide base singles, the Bandag B835 FuelTech and B135 FuelTech retreads are based on the Bridgestone Greatec M835 Ecopia drive and Greatec R135 Ecopia trailer radials.

Fumoto’s snap-on plastic elbow is designed to convert straight nipple-type drain valves to 90-degree L-shaped valves to facilitate improved hose connection, making it suited for tight areas with clearance issues. The 90-degree bend will help prevent the connected hose from kinking to facilitate full oil flow from the oil pan to help simplify oil changes.

TMI’s Mega-Pro Heavy Duty swinging door is designed to handle high levels of forklift and mechanized traffic while separating a building’s environments and controlling temperatures. The Mega-Pro HD can be used in doorways up to 10 feet wide and 10 feet high and features heavy-duty galvanized steel hardware that attaches to clear 3/8-inch-thick industrial-grade PVC that is available in both regular- and low-temperature grades. A spring-loaded design facilitates consistent opening and closing, and all components are housed within a heavy-duty frame that helps prevent the infiltration of dust, debris and other contaminants. The door also can reduce decibel ratings up to 35 dBA and is suited for large warehouses, storage facilities and other areas with constant workflow and high-impact traffic; optional impact plates provide added durability.
