Airliner Rear Suspension
There's a reason Freightliner's AirLiner rear suspensions shoulder the weight of more highway and medium-duty construction vehicle.
With the most advanced design on the road, our family of rear suspension options keeps weights lower and payloads higher. Smart engineering means drivers, and their freight, get a cushioned ride - reducing the possibility of damage and driver fatigue.
And maintenance friendly features like double-bonded rubber bushings on moving joints ensure a long life expectancy, and save in maintenance costs year after year.
The versatile TufTrac suspension was designed to serve a number of vocations including refuse, construction, concrete mixer, asphalt spreader, heavy haul, mining, logging, oil field service and line haul.
Freightliner TufTrac vocational suspensions provide the following features:
- High articulation for off-highway operations where it’s important to traverse bumps, ridges and washboard without “bottoming out” the suspension.
- Uniform wheel loading allows your truck to maintain a uniform load over each wheel as the suspension articulates for maximum traction.
- TufTrac’s combination of rubber-isolated pivot points and parabolic taper-leaf springs ensure a smooth ride, whether loaded or unloaded, minimizing wear and tear on both truck and driver.
