Reyco Granning has released a 35,000-lb. GAWR (gross axle weight rating) version of its 102AR-HD suspension, increasing the capacity range of the 102AR-HD family from the 27,000-lb. variant released last year. It also acts as an air suspension upgrade compliment to the 79KB leaf spring suspension that was already available in 27,000 and 35,000 lb. capacities.
The new higher capacity allows customers to carry additional gear or to revert from a 6x4 specification down to a 4x2. A heavy single axle in lieu of a tandem results in a lower cost vehicle with a shorter wheelbase and tighter turn radius.
The 102AR HD variant was developed with the specific load-carrying needs of the extreme-duty fire and rescue market.
