Trailer and Lift Axles

Watson & Chalin has announced the addition of its own trailer axles to the product portfolio. The company has also launched a new 20,000-lb self-steering axle and lift suspension system.

The new trailer axles are available in capacities up to 25,000 lb with N or P spindles, drum or disc brakes, 12.25- to 18-in. brakes, fully dressed wheel-end packages, and various wall thicknesses depending on the customer’s desired capacity.

The company has expanded the Tru-Track lift-axle family with the launch of the SL-2065 self-steering axle and lift suspension system at the Mid-America show.

Weighing in at 1327 lb, the SL-2065 offers “outstanding” maneuverability with a 25-degree wheel cut. It’s offered with 445/65R22.5 tires and an air-disc brake option.

Its parallelogram design provides a 27-in. packaging space allowing for easier configurations and is offered in ride heights from 8 to 13 in., featuring a quick-change ride-height system. Axle travel is 12 in.

Other features include “maintenance free” Huck fasteners, a narrow 89 drum face for increased body clearance, dual self-centering stabilizers, pre-set caster, and pre-plumbed options. It comes with a 5-year warranty
