SAF-Holland has announced the new SAF CBX69 tridem slider suspension systems, said to set a new standard for light-weight tridems. It delivers the features and benefits of the proven CBX40 in a triple-axle configuration, the company says.
The system features the SAF X-Series 5.75-in. diameter axle with a lightweight yet robust 11mm-wall axle that allows for higher duty-cycle applications. The system can be spec’d with optional SAF Integral disc brakes. The company notes that tridems provide the versatility to move freight across international, provincial, and state borders while maintaining compliance with bridge/weight regulations and Canadian SPIF ‘infrastructure friendly’ regulations.
The system is standard with Black Armour metal treatment for corrosion protection, said to be eco-friendly, less expensive, and lighter when compared to galvanization.
The new SAF CBX69 tridem slider suspensions will be available from most trailer OEMs this month.
