Updated Aug 14, 2013

SAF-Holland announced that its exclusive HOLLAND FWAL Aluminum Fifth Wheel is available at all Class 8 OEMs for online installation.

Approved for all on-highway standard-duty applications, the SAF-Holland says the FWAL is the world’s lightest weight and only aluminum standard-duty fifth wheel. Holland says that thanks to combining fifth wheel engineering and advanced ALCOA aluminum forging technology, the FWAL is up to 100 pounds lighter than competitive fifth wheels, without sacrificing durability or reliability.

Additionally, Holland says the FWAL features LowLube technology, including a grease-free top plate surface that is equipped with steel reinforced lube plates for superior wear and peel resistance.
