Ridewell’s RSS-233T is a fully integrated, self-steering, liftable axle/suspension system targeting the Canadian trailer market, by offering what Ridewell calls “the lightest weight with the highest performance.”

Ridewell RSS-233T self-steering, liftable axle/suspensionClose attention has been spent on engineering to ensure that design requirements were exceeded, the company says, such as dual-draw kingpins, “best in class” installation envelope, improved lateral stability, and cast axle to spindle transition.

The system is SPIF-approved for Ontario carriers.

Industry demands have been met, with up to 9.5 in. of lift. The steer system is available with a full range of ride heights, from 8 through to 20.5 in. They are approved for use in almost all Canadian applications.

Models are available for both trucks and trailers, with capacities starting at 8000 lb. Also coming in the near future are disc-brake versions.
