Where the Rubber Meets the Road
Most over the road North American trucks are typically configured as a 6x4 truck, but trucks with 6x2 lift axle configurations are growing in popularity due to the increased fuel efficiency, traction and tire life they provide. Link has been at the forefront of this movement with a multi-year agreement with Volvo® on its 6×2 axle configuration. Working closely with Volvo and Mack engineers, our 6x2 pusher axle integrates with Volvo and Mack adaptive loading systems to help trucks run at peak fuel efficiency and performance. The system provides greater fuel efficiency by sensing weight differentiation and automatically lifting the auxiliary suspension when it’s not needed, reducing friction and saving fuel when running lighter loads.
The 20K 6x2 pusher axle configuration is a factory install option available with Volvo and Mack. Like all suspensions engineered and manufactured by Link, it offers the best combination of reliability, durability and cost-effectiveness.
