KIRKLAND, Wash. — Kenworth has published a new brochure containing details about its new lightweight AG30 air suspension offering improved ride, handling and stability.

The company says the new suspension, rated at 38,000lb, is designed for O/Os and fleets demanding less weight and a lower chassis height for applications such as tankers, flatbeds, reefers, vans or auto-haulers.

Kenworth claims the new suspension weighs several hundred pounds less than traditional trailing arm suspensions, delivering increased payload, productivity and profits. The AG380’s design structure consists of a stiff, lightweight aluminum beam with a small semi-elliptic taper leaf spring mounted at one end and an air spring at the other.

The new suspension also contains half the parts of traditional suspensions, making it more maintenance-free. For more information, visit your Kenworth dealer or visit www.kenworth.com.
