Sloan Introduces MaxxDuty Pogo Stick
May 2012, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
Sloan Transportation Products says its new MaxxDuty pogo stick is the industry's first made of composite materials.
The MaxxDuty pogo stick eliminates the need for zip ties, allowing operators to run hydraulic and wrapped lines through the hoop.
The integrated hoop eliminates the need for zip ties, allowing operators to run hydraulic and wrapped lines through the hoop, while allowing for easy use of additional support clamps for coiled air and electrical lines.
The MaxxDuty pogo development process included several iterations exposed to extensive cycle testing and over a year of field trials in harsh conditions. Its patented design features a durable, injection molded, glass-filled nylon polymer top and base, and it allows for several attachment options. The rod is made in the U.S. of rigid, pultruded fiberglass.
All of the composite, nylon, and fiberglass components are UV-resistant, and any internal metal pieces are encapsulated in a protective casing. The mounting bolt, nut, and washer are the only exposed metal components on the pogo, and they are zinc-plated for corrosion resistance.
The MaxxDuty pogo is available in a 40-inch length. The company says it works well with Sloan's MaxxDuty three-in-1 and four-in-1 wraps for managing air, electrical and hydraulic lines, but it can be used with any heavy-duty line and cable configurations.
