The Holland Group says its Integrated Low-Weight Slider System (“ILS”) promises to reduce the weight of traditional fifth-wheel/slider combos by up to 27 percent (151 pounds) when compared with competitive offerings, while maintaining all of the strength and durability of Holland’s current slider design.

The ILS is compatible with the Holland FW35, FW31 and FW17 fifth-wheel models and is available in 7-, 8- and 9-inch mounting heights and travel lengths of 12, 24, 36 and 48 inches. Holland says that in addition to the weight savings, dealers and distributors also will appreciate the ILS’s modular design, which makes changing fifth-wheel heights a simple 2-part, 6-bolt task. Holland’s bracket exchange program can provide additional flexibility.

Holland sliding fifth wheels are designed to provide the capability to transfer weight between tractor axles, accommodate trailers with different kingpin settings and vary vehicle combination lengths. According to the company, its sliding fifth wheels also offer maximum equipment flexibility, improved maneuverability and exceptional ride comfort.

The Holland Group designs, manufactures and distributes components, systems and services to the transportation industry, specializing in products for coupling, lifting and suspension systems for trucks, buses, tractors and trailers. These products include fifth wheels, landing gear, air and mechanical suspensions, kingpins, pintle hooks, drawbars, couplers, liftgates and roll-formed components.
