Mack Trucks’ 16,000-pound front axle is now available for order on the Mack Pinnacle Axle Back and Axle Forward models.

Available in the U.S. and Canada, the 16,000-pound Mack FXL front axle is built to bear heavier loads to allow carriers to haul more cargo, improving productivity and efficiency.

“Our 16,000-pound front axle improves performance with the same legendary durability and reliability that Mack pioneered,” said Roy Horton, director of product strategy for Mack Trucks. “It’s designed significantly heavier so that our customers can improve their efficiency by transporting more payload at one time.”

Mack axles are engineered to work with Mack MP engines and Mack transmissions as part of the company’s integrated powertrain, offering improved strength and fuel efficiency. The Mack FXL was developed to provide a stable and smooth ride under demanding loads and also simplify maintenance to improve uptime.

All Mack Pinnacle models equipped with Mack MP engines come standard with Mack GuardDog Connect, a telematics-based solution providing proactive vehicle monitoring and maintenance management.  Combined with Mack Asist and Mack’s live OneCall uptime agents, GuardDog Connect delivers the people and technology to provide decision-critical information for improved uptime.
