ELYRIA, Ohio — A full wheel-end portfolio from Bendix – consisting of the ADB22X air disc brake, EverSure Spring Brake, Versajust LS Slack Adjuster, and foundation drum brakes – is now available on a range of International Trucks’ medium- and heavy-duty trucks.
New as an option on International’s entire lineup of Class 5-8 air-braked tractor, truck, and bus platforms is the Versajust Slack Adjuster, with the EverSure spring brake standard on the same vehicle set. By making the component bundle available, International Trucks is enabling fleets and owner-operators to gain the significant benefits of a complete wheel-end package designed by a single provider for optimal performance, Bendix said in a release.
“At Navistar, our customer focus is what drives us. It’s why we now offer the opportunity to choose the full menu of Bendix braking components – because, in doing so, our customers will experience the performance, safety, and efficiency benefits of wheel-end components engineered to work as a unit,” said Jeff Sass, senior vice-president, Trucks and Parts, International Trucks. “A product development process that considers how each component operates as part of the wheel-end package translates into significant value.”
“Navistar is making it possible for fleets and owner-operators to realize the value of a comprehensive wheel-end package engineered by a single provider. They know they’re getting Bendix components that have been designed, developed, validated, and certified together to optimize their performance,” said Scott Burkhart, Bendix vice-president – sales, marketing, and business development. “Combine that with the uptime benefits of being able to turn to one OE post-sales support team for their entire wheel-end, and the advantages become even clearer. Whether a fleet opts for individual components or the entire Bendix bundle on their vehicles, one thing is certain – they are receiving the performance and value on which the Bendix name is built.”
