Hendrickson Delivers Torque Rod Versatility with Unveiling of Ultra Rod® Plus(TM)
WOODRIDGE, ILL. - Hendrickson introduces the ULTRA ROD® PLUS(TM) torque rod replacement option for heavy-duty trucks and tractors.
The "PLUS" in ULTRA ROD PLUS represents added versatility Empty end hubs allow the use of any cartridge configuration from existing Hendrickson torque rod cartridge inventory. The "PLUS" provides an outstanding replacement option for vocational and on-highway applications.
The ULTRA ROD PLUS 30-inch spacer end provides the capability to trim the torque rod length - just measure, cut and weld. One-piece forging of both the tube and spacer ends eliminates the standard end-hub assembly weld and provides greater structural integrity.
The addition of ULTRA ROD PLUS to Hendrickson's aftermarket offering provides end users a choice between the original Hendrickson two-piece ULTRA ROD® assembly, which eliminates the bushing step or the added versatility of ULTRA ROD PLUS.
In the stockroom, the two-piece ULTRA ROD PLUS requires only two part numbers eliminating multiple torque rod inventory and part numbers.
Using Hendrickson Genuine Parts ensures the continued reliability and performance that the industry has come to expect from Hendrickson. As with all Hendrickson aftermarket parts, ULTRA ROD PLUS meets the same rigid testing requirements, design criteria and performance and durability metrics required of original, factory-installed components.
Torque rods are an integral part of the suspension, and service life will vary greatly, relative to the severity of the application. Hendrickson engineers recommend regular inspections to prevent unexpected downtime.
