Hendrickson unveiled its new PRIMAAX heavy-duty air suspension, designed specifically for roadtrain and heavy haulage work, PRIMAAX was designed from the ground up as a heavy-duty vocational suspension rather than an uprated on-highway air suspension, and will cope with GI/Ws up to 176 tonnes and up to 200mm of axle travel.
