Marathon is introducing a complete line of heavy duty shock absorbers for a wide range of over-the-road and severe duty applications. Marathon shock absorbers are designed and built to provide a comfortable, smooth ride and reduce vibrations from suspension systems.
These hydraulic shocks feature rugged construction with reinforced welds, tough end mounts and durable piston seals to provide consistent performance over the life of the shock. Chrome finished tempered steel piston rods protect from corrosion and high viscosity hydraulic oil is used for consistent performance over the life of shock.
During the extension movement, the shock’s hydraulic stop design has the top hole covered by the inner cylinder head, creating a layer of oil that protects the shock from topping out and damaging components.
