Timbren has designed new hollow rubber springs and mounting brackets which the company claims are more compact, lighter and more powerful than previous designs. The new design was made in response to EPA07 emission standards as well as a move towards tapered steel, composite and air springs in medium-duty and heavy-duty trucks. Timbren said it has not sacrificed ease of installation or ride quality. For more information, call 800-263-3113 or visit www.timbren.com.

Cooper Hand Tools has introduced a new ratcheting load binder which the company claims is easier to adjust than traditional lever-style binders. It features eight inches of take-up for a wide range of adjustments and it is approved for use with both 5/16″ and 3/8″ transport chains. The Grade 70 load binder has a 6,600-lb working load limit and a 26,400-lb breaking strength, according to the company. The binder also meets US DoT requirements 393.100-393.102.
