100% Off-Highway Rating
Off-Highway vehicles such as logging, mining, heavy haul, oil tankers, and end dump trailers operate in extreme terrain conditions. Unlike other manufacturers, Link’s chassis suspensions are tested and rated for 100% off-highway applications. They are designed to provide increased hauling capacity, greater stability and a better quality ride while increasing productivity by allowing drivers to maintain their speeds on off-highway terrain with a full or empty load. Cabmate® can also be spec’d as an option on these vehicles, providing an even better ride for the driver by reducing backslap, vibrations, and back stress.
Link’s TR50-HDT is specifically engineered for applications that involve off-highway use. You’ll get maximum performance in the most challenging environments. The 50k capacity rating allows trailer manufacturers to attain a full 150k capacity with three axle configurations.
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.
The Triton chassis suspension is designed to be used in tri-drive configurations. The suspension was designed specifically for the demanding life of off-highway conditions with an industry leading 105K carrying capacity. The Triton suspension is engineered for 100% off-highway use with +/- 4 inches of vertical articulation.
