SAF-HOLLAND Introduces the Revolutionary NEWAY LSZ Auxiliary Steerable Lift Axle Suspension System
SAF-HOLLAND has announced the introduction of its 13.5k capacity, NEWAY LSZ Auxiliary Steerable Lift Axle Suspension System.
With a 17.5-inch package size, the LSZ’s revolutionary design is more than 4 inches shorter than comparable lift axles. This rugged, yet compact, design offers customers application versatility, enables easy installation and service, and provides extra frame rail space for component packaging and options.
The Super ChamberTM lift on the LSZ outperforms traditional air springs by providing a quick and reliable 4-second lift speed. This unique design is more durable than competitive lifts, and provides a stronger and more consistent lift force that keeps the axle securely stowed. The Super Chamber position provides increased protection from road hazards and easier access for servicing.
The LSZ’s rolling lobe air springs are positioned at an angle, delivering a superior spring rate for increased stability and ride quality. Its parallelogram design maintains precise steering geometry while reducing tire wear.
The rugged design utilizes a kingpin assembly with spherical bearings, which eliminate thrust bearings that often require shimming and reaming. As a result, service requirements are greatly reduced.
“The unique design of our LSZ offers unmatched durability and reliability for our customers,” said Jack Gisinger, President of Powered Vehicles Business Unit. “Overall, the compact size combined with superior ride and low maintenance delivers improved operating efficiency.”
