This week at World of Concrete, International Truck is showcasing an International HV Series featuring the Hendrickson HaulMaax EX suspension, an upgraded suspension offering for the HV and HX Series. The truck also features Hendrickson Composilite EXS lift axles, a new offering from International.
“Our customers remain at the center of everything that we do, and we are constantly focused on providing them with the very best product offerings available,” said Mark Stasell, vice president, Vocational Truck Business, International Truck. “We are extremely excited to offer the optimized Hendrickson HaulMaax EX suspension for our customers, which adds to the superior suite of options our customers have to tailor our industry-leading products to their business’ needs.”
The Hendrickson HaulMaax EX suspension offers several key features that are beneficial for many vocational applications, including a progressive load spring system for improved stability, a lightweight design that removes unnecessary weight, optimized geometry for increased durability, and redesigned bolster and auxiliary springs for exceptional ride quality. The suspension also offers increased tire clearances for 315-millimeter tires and improved strength as evident in its increased site ratings. The Hendrickson Composilite EXS lift axles are available today, and the Hendrickson HaulMaax EX suspension will be available from International in the fall.
In addition, International Truck is showcasing its recently launched fleet service communications platform, International 360. Displayed in a unique, 360-degree theatre within the booth, International 360 offers seamless, transparent communication for the International service network, with a comprehensive, easy-to-use interface that supports all-makes fleets. The platform offers a simple, single tool that improves visibility throughout the process.
