Mack mRIDE suspension offers added payload for vocational trucks
By On-Site StaffTrucks
Combining Mack’s mRIDE spring leaf over rubber block suspension with the truck maker’s proprietary axles, now delivers added weight savings for increased payload. Designed with vocational customers in mind, the pairing also brings greater stability and increased traction on job sites.
“Mack made these enhancements as a result of ongoing continuous improvement that is a hallmark of Mack’s product development,” Tim Wrinkle, Mack construction product manager, said in a release.
Available at suspension ratings of 40,000 pounds and 46,000 pounds, Mack said customers can save 140 pounds with drum brakes and 146 pounds with air disc brakes as a result of casting suspension components into the Mack axle housing.
The suspension system is fully integrated with Mack MP engines, transmissions and axles; mRIDE is available in Mack Pinnacle axle forward, Mack Granite, Mack TerraPro and Mack LR.
