Ingersoll's new self-steer axle with disc brakes boasts a 30-degree turning radius.
INGERSOLL, Ont. — Ingersoll Axles has introduced a 30-degree disc brake self-steering axle, for improved maneuverability in tight spaces.
The 30-degree design was introduced to the Canadian market at Truck World.
“Our customers face many instances where their trailers are in tight situations and getting the most turn angle out of their axles as possible is imperative,” said Neil Haslam, head of design engineering at Ingersoll Axles.
The new self-steer axle has a forward-facing tie-rod design that allows turn angles of up to 30 degrees for disc brake axles. It is offered with Haldex, Wabco and Bendix disc brake packages and is available in all track lengths, as well as an inverted drop-center version.
Ingersoll Axles also introduced a mid-mount disc brake suspension, a lubrication system and a load monitoring system. More info can be found at www.ingersollaxles.com.
