ELECTRONICS: Parker Hannifin Corp. has developed a series of economical lift axle control panels that enable truck operators to raise and lower an auxiliary axle on vehicles to accommodate heavy loads. The Parker modules can be used within truck cabs or externally mounted on dump trucks or trailers, and are available in steer or non-steer versions. Parker has long been a leader in transportation and mobile systems, and this pneumatic solution continues to reinforce the company’s commitment to the truck industry.
The Parker Lift Axle modules consistently provide smooth operation, even in low temperatures. The control panel offers color coded connections for ease-of-use and the air system maintains a high flow rate to ensure rapid raising and lowering of the lift axle.
Parker Lift Axle air control modules are dependable, low maintenance, affordable solutions for trucks, haulers and mixers.
