Parker Hannifin Corporation has developed a series of lift axle control panels for raising and lowering an auxiliary axle on vehicles to accommodate heavy loads.
The Parker modules can be used within truck cabs or externally mounted on dump trucks or trailers, and are available in steer or non-steer versions.
The control panel offers color-coded connections, and the air system maintains a high flow rate to ensure rapid raising and lowering of the lift axle.
"We made it easy to order our modules online any time, and we're running several great promotional discounts," said Paxton Augustine, product marketing manager for Parker's Pneumatic Division.
