· Enhanced performance: A 10-LED array with reflective sidewalls and a clear lens provides better lighting, as does a wide viewing angle and 700-lumen intensity;
· Robust design: Rugged aluminum housing protects against corrosion, moisture and impact, and the LEDs are protected by an unbreakable polycarb lens; and
· Cool white color: CCT tolerance ensures bright white consistence.

Wheel cleaner
Tire Service Equipment Manufacturing Co. says its automated WC-30 Heavy Duty Truck Wheel Cleaner safely and effectively cleans bead surface and rim flange areas on heavy-duty truck and off-highway aluminum and steel wheels sized from 20 to 32 inches, up to 20 inches wide. According to the company, the WC-30 is designed with operator protection in mind: The wheel is placed in a completely enclosed cabinet, where it rotates automatically, and the wire brush is adjusted manually to the proper cleaning position. The operator observes the entire procedure through the viewing windows, while all dust and debris is removed from the cleaning chamber by the internal 5 hp vacuum, the company says; all wheel lip and bead surfaces can be cleaned in as little as seven to 10 minutes.

The G661 HSA steer and all-position tire is designed with a high scrub-resistant tread, utilizing multicompound construction that helps to extend tread life when used in local applications which require frequent turning, backing and braking. The G662 RSA with Fuel Max Technology, intended for regional and local haul applications as a steer and all-position tire, is Goodyear’s first regional tire to offer the company’s proprietary fuel-saving Fuel Max technology, a compound designed to reduce rolling resistance in longer direct routes, improving fuel economy up to 4 percent.

The tires have a 22/32-inch tread depth, 2/32 inches deeper than previous Goodyear regional tires, giving both the G661 HSA and G662 RSA with Fuel Max Technology extended miles to removal. Additionally, TredLock Technology, featuring interlocking microgrooves, helps to stiffen and stabilize the tread for long tread life. A new casing design for most sizes features full-sized super-tensile steel belts to help reinforce the tread for enhanced toughness.

The G661 HSA and G662 RSA with Fuel Max are available now in an 11R22.5 size, with the 295/75R22.5 size coming in June. The G661 HSA also will have the 11R24.5 size available in June.

LED switches
Del City says its latest LED switches, available in a variety of styles and colors, will intensify any standard switch panel.

To simply upgrade a switch panel, the company says its chrome indicator light allows the user to easily identify when an accessory has been activated via its bright white LED; this light requires a low electrical draw and has a 100,000-hour usage life to facilitate a long-lasting fit.

Trailer wire storage
Phillips Industries says its Q-Box has 50 percent more interior room to keep as many trailer wires as required organized and pinch-free. Supplemental electrical trailer systems, such as trailer-tracking and weigh-in-motion systems, leave little room for proper wire storage and manipulation in standard junction boxes. Phillips says that with the Q-Box, mechanics have plenty of room for additional wires and repairs, and they no longer have to use “shoulder leverage” to close an overloaded nosebox. The Q-Box is outfitted with Phillips’ QCS2 Quick-Connect Socket to help facilitate quick replacement of worn sockets. The housing is designed to be durable and weather-resistant to help keep interior wiring sealed against corrosion, chemicals and extreme weather. The Q-Box can be purchased without circuit breakers or with quick-change 15-, 20- or 30-amp circuit breakers included.

Quick-release gladhands
Sloan Transportation Products says its quick-release gladhands help prevent in-city trailer bouncing by releasing trailer brakes faster, reducing wear and tear on drums and linings, and reducing overall maintenance costs. The gladhands – available in both standard-serve and 37.5-degree emergency mounts – are color-coded to simplify identification, and the polyurethane seals are designed to resist wear and corrosion from harsh roadway chemicals, helping to prevent cracking and tearing. The gladhands meet all SAE specification J318 requirements, according to the company.
