Tuthill Transport Technologies Announces A New Truck Air Ride Suspension: The ReycoGranning(TM) 79AR


The 79AR drive axle air ride suspension offers GAWR (gross axle weight ratings) of 17,000 to 23,000 lbs. per axle. The 79AR was designed for Class 6 and 7 vocational trucks with single drive axles. Kits have been designed specifically for Kenworth, Peterbilt, Freightliner, Western Star, Mack and Sterling models, but the 79AR can be adapted to any truck with standard-dimension frame rails.

The 79AR was spawned from an existing successful and proven steel spring suspension-the ReycoGranning 79KB-and incorporates existing hangers, axle connections, torque arms, bushings and hardware. All components are manufactured in a quality-controlled ISO 9001 environment following lean manufacturing principles. "The 79AR will be available for installation at dealers and aftermarket facilities in North America starting in early 2002," says Ray Mueller, VP Engineering at Tuthill Transport Technologies. "We are offering a special conversion kit which lets dealers convert trucks with an existing 79KB to an air ride suspension with a very moderate amount work. The ability to re-use existing components saves money and increases the resale value of used truck inventories."
