The Military Tactical Trailer Suspension is proven to meet the mobility requirements for tactical vehicles fitted with independent suspensions, without reducing vehicle top speed. The suspension was developed specifically for military operation and provides a unique combination of trailing arm and high articulation walking beam technology. Over 2,000 Link tactical trailer suspensions are in service with the British Army, U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Marine Corps, and NASA.
The MSVS Trailer brings unique mission capabilities to logistic support operations. Capable of hauling 22,000 lbs., the trailer is extremely versatile and can be used to haul 20ft cargo containers, mobile workshops, or communications center. The military grade trailer has been in service with the Canadian Army on its HESV fleet for over two decades with over 300 units in service.
The Air Link® Tandem Drive Suspension is a unique combination of air and walking beam technology. It delivers everything you demand in a heavy-duty suspension — high roll stability, low maintenance and a smooth ride. The unique design also ensures maximum traction and load equalization. The distinctive Air Link® TD design provides superior traction when the load is full, without the bone-jarring ride when empty.
SWB Tandem Steer
The SWB (Spring Walking Beam) tandem steer suspension provides the added carrying capacity required in today’s heavy trucking industry. The suspension dynamically load equalizes through its spring over walking beam design. The innovative combination ensures proper axle tracking and weight distribution by minimizing possible overload scenarios. The 40K SWB tandem steer suspension was specifically designed to reduce axle stress, suspension weight and maintenance costs.
