International Trucks is making air disc brakes standard for its HV and HX Series models.
The HV507, HV607, HV513 and HV613 models, and the HX515, HX520, HX615 and HX620 models now feature Bendix ADB22X air disc brakes as a standard offering and are currently available for order.
“Through the DriverFirst design philosophy, our product development team constantly evaluates how we can improve the driver experience,” said Mark Stasell, International’s vice president of vocational trucks.
“Offering standard air disc brakes on the HV Series and HX Series is part of our uptime promise to build trucks with the latest safety technologies that stay on the road, and that drivers want to drive.”
As part of International Trucks' commitment to providing safe, reliable trucks, the Bendix ADB22X disc brake from Bendix Spicer Foundation Brake – a joint venture from Bendix and Dana that supplies complete brake systems for OEMs – features a lightweight air disc brake design, allowing for increased payload, reduced stopping distance and extended brake system life.
The ADB22X, rated for severe service, also offers the advantages of quicker pad replacement and longer pad life, leading to greater uptime and lower maintenance costs, International said.
The HV and HX Series are purpose-built to deliver uptime for a full range of severe service applications.
Redesigned from the inside out, the HV Series interior was crafted with driver and body company feedback to ensure the most comfortable and productive environment possible, while the exterior boasts “powerful” styling.
The HV Series features the intelligence of the Diamond Logic electrical system for the automation of tasks, and interlocks to help protect both equipment and crew.
Furthermore, both HV and HX Series trucks offer customers a versatile foundation for any configuration necessary at any job and include power options like the International A26 – an engine designed with uptime in mind.
