Original Press Release

Hendrickson Combines Two Innovations for One Amazing Solution.

Press release date: Apr 17, 2017

Hendrickson supplements their Genuine Parts portfolio with the addition of the renowned Hendrickson Equalizing Beam complete with the innovated patented Rotating Bar Pin End Bushing for a quick and easy installation.

“Our patented Rotating Bar Pin End Bushing allows you to adjust the angle of the pin to match the axle pinion angle for a quick and easy beam installation. Uptime is paramount in this industry, and this new product offering will enable the technician to service the vehicle right the first time,” said David McCleave, Director Aftermarket for Hendrickson.

Along with the rotating bar pin benefit, the rotating bar pin bushing utilizes the same proprietary rubber material and bonding composition as the standard end bushing leading to longer component life. Once under load, the rotating bar pin will lock into place.

This patented feature eliminates inner bushing wear which contributes to greater component service life.

The Genuine Parts’ Equalizing Beam is the exact beam used in production; providing the structural integrity and functionality to maintain original system performance. Hendrickson Equalizing Beams are made of a high strength steel formula exclusive to Hendrickson; enabling long component service life and a lightweight design for greater payloads.

Utilizing proprietary manufacturing and material preparation processes increases fatigue life which equates to longer service life of the equalizing beam. The Genuine Parts’ Equalizing Beam is one hundred percent robotically welded; delivering consistent and accurate weld penetration leading to improved service life and peace of mind.

With the Hendrickson Equalizing Beam and Rotating Bar Pin End Bushing combination you’ll never fight axle pinion angles again when replacing select HAULMAAX® and HN® equalizing beams.
