Reyco Granning's LiftMaster auxiliary lift axle family includes the ALAP-13 (PS) steerable and ALAP-13 (NS) non-steerable versions. The axles can support 13,200 pounds of weight and are designed for Class 7 and 8 vehicles.
The new suspensions take the place of the company's L132 steerable and L130 non-steerable models. The company reduced weight by 75 pounds in the steerable model and 100 pounds in the non-steerable model.
Reyco Granning used a large Bilstein gas-charged, monotube steer damper that eliminated heat build-up and cavitation and maintains constant control of the steering mechanism. Other standard features include an automatic lift function in reverse, eliminating the chance that a driver might forget to manually lift the axle.
The LiftMaster series is covered by a 36-month or 300,000-mile parts only, and a 12-month or 100,000-mile labor warranty for the main structural components, including hangers, beams, clip plates and axle saddles, torque arms and bellow pads.
The LiftMaster series is also covered by 12-month or 100,000 mile parts only, and 6-month or 12,000-mile labor, for other air spring lift axle suspension components, such as valves, fasteners, bushings, and components not stated specifically which are provided by Reyco Granning.
ALAP is an acronym for Auxiliary Lift, Air spring, Parallelogram. The products were introduced at the Work Truck Show.
