Meritor’s Front Steer non-drive axle family are designed for improved maneuverability and vehicle stability. Kenworth is offering the axles on the Class 7 Kenworth T370.
The MFS axles are rated from 12,000 to 14,600 pounds in standard and wide track options and are available for applications such as linehaul, pickup and delivery, construction, refuse, logging, and mining. The axles offer up to a 55-degree turn angle and feature Easy Steer bushing technology to reduce steering effort. A combination of low-friction bushings, double draw keys, and integral bearing and seal designs improve durability.
The Easy Steer king pin bushings, computer-designed I-beam construction, and a stiff axle assembly combine to deliver a tighter turning radius and better tire longevity.
