SAF-Holland introduced what it says is the industry's first integrated yoke mount air suspension axle system, the CBXy Series.
The new CBXy yoke mount model is designed to work in conjunction with the low-profile CBXu underslung model. The yoke mount allows for load equalization, and is specially designed for lowboy and dropdeck trailer applications.
The cast steel yoke mount beam provides strength and durability, yet is the lightest design on the market, according to SAF-Holland. The SAF 5.75-inch-diameter axle comes with Integral air disc brake P89 or drum brake wheel end package with industry-standard spindles or optional parallel spindles.
The yoke mount is available on the SAF CB25Xy with a 25,000-pound capacity and on the CBX25-30y, rated for 30,000 pounds of load carrying at creep speed and 25,000-pound on-highway operations.
For 22.5-inch or larger tire applications, SAF's X-series is an industry-leading lightweight system, featuring a 5.75-inch diameter.
For low-profile trailer applications that require 17.5-inch and 19.5-inch wheel sizes, the SAF CBu and CBy suspension models accommodate 12.25-inch by 7.5-inch drum brake packages.
The CBXy series is coated with Black Armour metal protection, which chemically bonds with metal to form a protective skin that is designed to be impervious to water and anti-icing chemicals.
