PORTLAND, Ore. -- Freightliner has announced the availability of twin steer chassis prep kits for its 114SD and 122SD truck models.
The prep kits allow quick aftermarket conversions and installations of second steer axles and heavy-duty suspensions, resulting in faster delivery to the customers, Freightliner says.
Providing the turnkey solution is Simard Suspensions of Baie-Saint-Paul, Quebec. The product is aimed at crane, dump, wrecker, mixer and logging applications.
“To provide a simplified transition from factory to conversion, we developed a cost-effective and timely process that still allows for customization,” said Mary Aufdemberg, director of product marketing for Freightliner Trucks. “We are responding to our customers’ needs by providing a streamlined solution that will get them on the job as fast as possible.”
