Hendrickson officials have announced the extension of the limited warranty on the Steertek truck and tractor steer axle to five years or 750,000 miles. Steertek comes standard with the Airtek integrated front air suspension system and Softtek integrated front steel leaf suspension system.
Offered in capacities from 12,000 to 14,000 pounds, the box-shaped cross section of the Steertek axle is designed to resist horizontal, vertical and twisting forces more effectively than traditional I-beam axles, enabling tires to maintain better contact with the road and helping to improve steer tire life.
Together with suspension elements, the robotically welded Steertek axle beam forms a torsion system, helping to enhance roll stability characteristics and improve handling, according to the company. For more information, go to www.hendrickson-intl.com.
