Hendrickson introduces ToughLift round tube axle platform

Hendrickson Specialty Products Auxiliary Axle Systems debuted the new ToughLift brand of lift axles in April at Truck World, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. 

This new platform was designed specifically to utilize round axles for non-steerable and steer applications in severe-or heavy duty applications. The round tube axle design promotes up to an aggressive 25,000-lb capacity in order to handle the vocational industry’s toughest applications. 

The ToughLift FM and FR non-steer models will replace the popular heavy-duty HLM model with capacities up to 25,000 lbs, as well as the high lifting HLR 13,000- and 18,000-lb capacity non-steer lift axles that have been used extensively over the years in both pusher or tag positions. 

The ToughLift LK is the first steer model to be added to this new platform. The LK was developed around an integrated leading kingpin and knuckle design for the dual tire steerable market. The demand for this dual tire steer feature is currently prevalent in Ontario, Canada and New York for 25,000 pound applications. The LK is an ideal lift axle for fleets in need of additional flexibility for heavy-duty vocational markets. This product is a fully integrated system designed by Hendrickson, driven by weight reduction while maintaining our reputation for durability, strength and innovation. 

The new ToughLift Series is fully backed by one of the best comprehensive warranty packages in the industry. It’s all in the name – ToughLift…. Hendrickson Auxiliary Axle products continue to stand TOUGH above the rest.
