Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems has introduced the RoadMaax line of heavy-duty rear air suspensions, for fire and rescue vehicles.
RoadMaax will serve as the new rear air suspension for Rosenbauer’s new SA Viper aerial truck. It is designed specifically for heavy-duty fire and rescue markets with ride quality and equipment protection being its cornerstone features.
“We are excited to offer another innovation to the Fire Industry and provide First Responders with the products and reliability that they need to do their job,” said Dave Scharphorn, director of sales for Rosenbauer Motors.
RoadMaax is designed for enhanced handling in challenging environments where vehicles encounter sharp turns and unexpected ground and environmental conditions. The integration of Hendrickson’s main support member spring technology, with its wide stance air springs, provides a balance of predictable handling and ride quality even over a variety of terrain.
“This system was designed with a low maintenance, unique suspension geometry providing maximum control, predictable handling, and premium ride quality,” said Chris Batsch, director of the specialty vehicle business unit for Hendrickson.
