Precision240 joins the Precision320 nut system, which has been available on Hendrickson's HXL7, a seven-year limited warranty wheel-end system since August 2009.

These patented two-piece spindle nut systems provide fine-tuned adjustment increments, nearly five times the adjustment resolution of other popular two-piece systems, according to the company, to achieve more precise end play settings than traditional and more complicated three-piece spindle nut systems.

"The precise adjustment mechanism employed by our precision nuts allows Hendrickson to control the amount of pre-load on the bearings during installation," says Perry Bahr, general manager and vice president of Hendrickson Trailer Commercial Vehicle Systems. "Our Precision240 nut system maximizes bearing and seal life and keeps trailers on the road rather than in the shop"

Hendrickson's precision nut systems guarantee bearing end play is set correctly the first time and allow Hendrickson technicians to precisely install wheel-ends in light preload, the company says.
