Premium Emergency Vehicle Suspension
The Air Link® Tandem Drive Suspension is a unique combination of air and walking beam technology. It delivers everything you demand in an emergency vehicle suspension — high roll stability, low maintenance and a smooth ride. The unique design also ensures maximum traction and load equalization. The distinctive Air Link® design provides optimum ride height and premium on or off highway performance.
Air Link’s walking beam provides improved traction and load equalization, key aspects for pumpers and aerial applications. Municipalities can distinctively see how an air ride suspension can attribute a clear reduction in costs associated with equipment wear, tire life, bushing life and reduce downtime when compared to a rubber block suspension. Fire fighters will always be action ready with the suspension fully functional even if air-loss occurs.
Air Link was first used in fire truck applications in 1999 to help remedy ladder breakage for major OEM fire apparatus trucks. Today, Air Link is available for most fire truck manufacturers with tandem drive configurations. Air Link is available in capacities ranging from 52,000 lbs to 65,000 lbs.
