Truck maintenance sessions

Hendrickson will host 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Product Analysis Education classes, January 23-25 at its 2018 World of Concrete Booth C6502, Las Vegas Convention Center.

“In the demanding vocational trucking industry, and especially the concrete segment, it’s imperative to know when to replace worn parts to maximize suspension system life cycle,” says Hendrickson Global Field Service Director Steve Berry. “When replacing, we always recommend Hendrickson Genuine Parts to achieve the original OEM fit and ride quality.”

Product Analysis Education will cover inspection of Haulmaxx bolster, auxiliary and progressive load springs for signs of wear, plus analysis of torque rod and shock absorber failure and Primaax EX Quik-Align bushing. Participants are eligible for a daily $100 gift drawing, held at the close of the 2:30 p.m. session.

Hendrickson will have a full range of vocational suspension systems and components such as Haulmaax, Primaax EX, torque rods, Composilite lift axle, and Watson & Chalin products across a 30x40 booth. The focus will be on areas top of mind for customers, management notes: weight reduction, durability, improved ride and handling, less maintenance, lower cost of ownership and ultimately, time savings. The manufacturer’s focal point in the new year is “Engineered for Efficiency.”— Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems, www.hendrickson-intl.com
