CANTON, Ohio — Hendrickson has introduced a new automatic lift axle control system.

The control electronically triggers the axle lift mechanism when the trailer travels rearward and starts the axle dropping with forward movement.

The automatic lift axle is compatible with any lift mechanism equipped with an electro-pneumatic control. It also answers Canadian control requirements for liftable/steerable axles.

The unit operates without driver intervention and without controls in the cab – fully automating the control of the lift axle.

The Automatic Lift Axle Control Kit (EKAD0001) includes a direction sensor, an electronic control unit and a wiring harness.
