Ridewell announces the expansion of the RAR-240 series of trailer air-ride suspensions. Now available for order are yoke mount suspensions designed specifically for use with Ridewell brand axles with Wabco PAN 22 air disc brakes. The new suspensions also can be used with IMT’s axles with Wabco Pan 22, 19, or 17 ADB, or Haldex ADB.
A yoke trailing arm beam allows the brake actuator to be placed under the tail, requiring no modifications to the trailer frame beyond those typically done for a standard RAR-240 yoke suspension. Also, no change to the normal frame transition geometry is required
When brake actuator ground clearance and protection are critical, the newly designed yoke trailing arm below has a ‘banana beam’ that allows the brake actuator to be tucked between the beam and trailer frame, Ridewell says. This design requires a more ‘squared-off’ frame transition to allow clearance for the actuator.
RAR-240 Part #2400210 has a 25,000 lb. capacity, and a ride height range of 6 in. to 7.5 in. RAR-240 Part #2400211 has a 25,000 lb. capacity, and a ride height range of 7.5 in. to 9 in.
