International Truck announced the availability of the heavy-duty Fabco FSD-20K axle option on its WorkStar truck models.

The International WorkStar 7400 and 7500 models will now optionally offer the Fabco FSD-20K right-hand offset axle.

The offset bowl axle offers the flexibility to increase load capacity to 20,000 pounds without sacrificing ground clearance or cab height. The Fabco front driving axle reduces ride height compared to center bowl drive axles by more than four inches, according to International.

“As we focus on growing our market share in the vocational segment and catering to the needs of our customers, we’re excited to offer this new axle in partnership with Fabco Automotive,” said Mark Stasell, vice president, Vocational Truck Business, International Trucks. “This is just one example of our plans to continue to invest in our vocational truck line this year. Listening to TEMs and providing the specific features they need for their applications is a key part of our strategy to be the ‘chassis of choice’ in this market.”

Fabco Automotive Corp., designs, manufactures and distributes drivetrain systems, power transmission gearboxes and related commercial, industrial, agricultural and military components.
