“From construction to concrete to crane, vocational trucks are unique in their requirements and challenges,” says Scott Burkhart, Bendix vice president, sales, marketing and business development. “The ADB22X is a strong match for severe service trucks. Its lightweight design allows for increased payloads, and the brake’s stopping power and ‘feel’ are difference makers for drivers.”

Since launching the ADB22X in 2005, BSFB has produced more than 2 million units, reflecting an increasing demand for air disc brakes in the commercial vehicle industry, according to the company.
