Reyco Granning Electric Vehicle Solutions has developed a new high-capacity variant of its customizable suspension option for Class 5-8 electric trucks.
The company said its 79KB is a very customizable suspension option available for Class 5 through 8 trucks. the new high-capacity, 35,000-lb. GAWR variant allows customers to configure a 4X2 with a GVW that would have required a 6X4 in the past, according to the company.
Reyco Granning Electric Vehicle Solutions reports the 79KB is widely used by a major truck OEM for EV applications today. The system is available in a variety of capacities with options that include a stabilizer bar, taper leaf springs, helper springs, shock absorbers, and disc brake compatibility.
The 240AR-EV has a GAWR range of 17,000 lb. to 23,000 lb. and is suitable for single or tandem-drive axle arrangements. Low profile frame brackets leave room for body mounts or fifth wheel angles.
The curved spring beam eliminates the traditional lower air spring mount to increase ground clearance and reduce weight. Design efficiencies were a focus to make room for a larger e-axle and higher un-sprung mass. The company said the system is ideally suited for on-highway truck, tractor, motorhome, or bus applications.
“Taking our place in the development of EV solutions further cements our commitment to the future of heavy and medium vehicle propulsion,” said John Stuart, president.
