SAF-Holland announced the release of its CBXy Series – the company’s first integrated Yoke Mount Air Suspension Axle System – at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky. Thursday.
The new CBXy yoke mount model is designed to work in conjunction with the low profile CBXu underslung model, and the yoke mount, specially designed for lowboy and drop deck trailer applications, allows for load equalization.
The cast steel yoke mount beam is lightest design in the market, according to SAF-Holland. The SAF 5.75-inch diameter axle comes with Integral air disc brake P89 or drum brake wheel end package with standard spindles or optional parallel spindles.
The yoke mount is available on the SAF CB25Xy with a 25,000-pound capacity and the CBX25-30y, rated for 30,000 pounds of load carrying at creep speed and 25,000-pound on-highway operations. For 22.5-inch or larger tire applications, SAF’s X-series is an industry-leading lightweight system, featuring a 5.75-inch diameter.
For low profile trailer applications that require 17.5-inch and 19.5-inch wheel sizes, the SAF CBu and CBy suspension models accommodate 12.25-inch x 7.5-inch drum brake packages.
