COMPOSILITE EXS Steerable Lift Axle

Next Generation Truck Steerable Lift Axle

COMPOSILITE™ EXS is Hendrickson’s innovative next generation of steerable lift-axle suspension systems engineered for enhanced durability and performance. Several technological advancements enabled Hendrickson to take this concept from theory to the road. Inset lower beams help to optimise lateral stiffness and to eliminate the need for V-rods.

Zero-torsion rubber bushes provide increased service life and lower cost of ownership with reduced downtime. The patented STEERTEK™ axle technology increases structural durability and incorporates bolt-on axle seats for easier serviceability and re-configuration, thereby lowering the cost of ownership.
