A full wheel-end portfolio from Bendix – consisting of the Bendix ADB22X air disc brake, Bendix EverSure Spring Brake, Bendix Versajust LS Slack Adjuster, and Bendix foundation drum brakes – is now available on a range of International Trucks’ medium- and heavy-duty trucks and IC-branded buses.
“Leading off the Bendix bundle lineup, customers can improve their stopping power by spec’ing Bendix ADB22X air disc brakes as an option on all Class 6-8 platforms where air disc brake technology is available; or by taking advantage of the proven performance of Bendix foundation drum brakes, an option on all Class 5-8 air-braked vehicle platforms,” Bendix said. “New as an option on International’s entire lineup of Class 5-8 air-braked tractor, truck, and bus platforms is the Versajust Slack Adjuster, with the EverSure spring brake standard on the same vehicle set.”
“At Navistar, our customer focus is what drives us. It’s why we now offer the opportunity to choose the full menu of Bendix braking components – because, in doing so, our customers will experience the performance, safety, and efficiency benefits of wheel-end components engineered to work as a unit,” said Jeff Sass, senior vice president, Trucks and Parts, International Trucks. “A product development process that considers how each component operates as part of the wheel-end package translates into significant value.”
“Navistar is making it possible for fleets and owner-operators to realize the value of a comprehensive wheel-end package engineered by a single provider. They know they’re getting Bendix components that have been designed, developed, validated, and certified together to optimize their performance,” said Scott Burkhart, Bendix vice president – sales, marketing, and business development. “Combine that with the uptime benefits of being able to turn to one OE post-sales support team for their entire wheel-end, and the advantages become even clearer. Whether a fleet opts for individual components or the entire Bendix bundle on their vehicles, one thing is certain – they are receiving the performance and value on which the Bendix name is built.”
The Bendix component package now available at Navistar starts with foundation brakes and also includes chambers and automatic slack adjusters. For more information about Bendix wheel-end solutions, call 1-800-AIR-BRAKE.
