The Stability You Need. The Ride You Want.
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 engineered design blends the rugged durability and weight distribution of a walking beam with the simplicity of a spring suspension. The suspension is equipped to use common spring pins and wear parts for simple inspection, maintenance and replacement. The straightforward components largely reduce installation time as well as preventive maintenance.
Overall, drivers will appreciate the improved ride that the SWB offers. The spring over walking beam design isolates the chassis from road forces as well as less wear and tear on the vehicle. The SWB tandem steer suspension comes standard on many major North American cranes, and is available for heavy truck applications at a cost comparable to a conventional leaf spring twin steer.
