Hendrickson releases additional air disc brake maintenance videos to online training portal,

LOUISVILLE, Kentucky — Hendrickson Trailer Commercial Vehicle Systems announces the addition of more air disc brake (ADB) maintenance training videos to its online training portal,, ahead of the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) in Louisville, Kentucky.  This free online resource features quick, convenient training videos for a variety of truck and trailer products including Hendrickson’s MAXX22T™ trailer air disc brake system.

“While the perception may be that air disc brakes are maintenance-free, the reality is that, like any other braking system, a regularly planned maintenance schedule is integral to maximizing performance and achieving optimal life,” says Greg Dvorchak, applications engineer for Hendrickson’s wheel-end and braking systems business unit.  “Hendrickson’s free online training academy is a great tool for educating technicians on Hendrickson’s recommended maintenance practices for a variety of products including MAXX22T air disc brakes.”   

 Hendrickson will host several informational sessions during the Mid-America Trucking Show to educate attendees on key tips for maintaining trailer air disc brake systems.  Sessions will be held on Thursday, March 22nd at 2:00PM or 4:00PM and Friday, March 23rd at 10AM or 11AM in booth 34165.   Greg Dvorchak, Hendrickson’s lead brake application engineer, will facilitate the sessions, and attendees will be entered into a drawing for an Amazon gift card.
