East Manufacturing will offer the Hendrickson Maxx22T Trailer Air Disc Brake with Dura-Light Hub as the preferred air disc brake package option for all its trailers.

Additional brands will also be available.

The Maxx22T with Dura-Light Hub is an average 20 pounds per axle lighter than Maxx22T with ductile iron hub, according to East. Its compact, lightweight monoblock caliper uses the Wabco single piston with a sealed and protected guide system for higher reliability.

The Dura-Light hub on the Maxx22T features an e-coat designed to enhance corrosion resistance. The hub-to-rotor connection reduces the time and effort required for stud changes in the field.

The Maxx22T trailer air disc brake option was upgraded to include the HXL5 Hendrickson Extended-Life wheel-end system with a 5-year warranty.

The lightweight cast rotor is designed to be more corrosion resistant. The bolt-on dust shield is designed to be easier to install and maintain with built-in clearance to allow for simplified rotor inspection. They are also designed to easier change outs.

The Maxx22T trailer air disc brakes are compatible when tractors are equipped with drum brakes or other disc brake brands. East will continue to offer additional name-brand air disc brake options with Hendrickson’s HXL5 5-year warranty, including Bendix and Wabco PAN22.
