Jost fifth wheels now standard on Volvo trucks

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Volvo Trucks has announced Jost International is now its standard fifth wheel supplier.



GREENSBORO, N.C. — Volvo Trucks has announced Jost International is now its standard fifth wheel supplier.

“Introduction of this new standard fifth wheel represents our ongoing focus on safety, driver productivity and customer value,” said Frank Bio, Volvo Trucks product manager, trucks. “We appreciate Jost’s broad product range and availability of information to help specify a fifth wheel based on vehicle application.”

The Jost fifth wheel has just four moving parts, which Volvo says makes it one of the simplest and safest fifth wheel coupling devices in the market. It employs a spring-loaded steel locking bar that automatically secures the kingpin once it slides into position.

Equal support on each side of the coupling helps distribute the trailer load evenly, resulting in reduced wear, according to the company.
