Hendrickson launches Composilite Steerable Compliant SC lift axle series

Hendrickson Composilite SC lift axle

Hendrickson’s Composilite Steerable Compliant SC series of lift axles reduce system weight, minimize package space and feature a flexible tie-rod, further improving product performance and durability while offering increased payload and reduced maintenance.

The Composilite SC offers a range of capacities – including 10,000, 13,500 and 20,000 pounds – and introduces the company’s proprietary Compliant Tie Rod (CTR) with PerfecTrak Technology, a flexible tie-rod assembly and dampening system designed to lower maintenance costs and increase uptime by providing a resilient impact-resistant tie-rod assembly. The CTR system also provides a self-centering mechanism and improved “driver feel” through a passive-steer Ackerman.
