Hendrickson Announces Expanded Steer Axle Coverage

WOODRIDGE, Ill. – Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems announces the expansion of its STEERTEK™ NXT portfolio of fabricated front steer axles to include 8K, 10K and 12K capacities for the medium duty truck and bus segments. 

The 10k and 12k capacities will be available soon for the International® MV™ line of trucks and IC Bus® CE Series of school buses as optional equipment. Hendrickson’s proprietary design and manufacturing process saves weight compared to traditional I-beam axles while combining rigid strength, outstanding maneuverability, and reduced maintenance. As with the rest of the STEERTEK™ NXT portfolio, these new axles come with a best in class service interval and feature an exclusive 10-year, 1-million-mile warranty.

“Expanding our steer axle portfolio to include medium duty represents a significant milestone for Hendrickson in the front steer axle space and provides the medium and bus market with the same benefits customers have come to realize with STEERTEK NXT since its entry into the on-highway market in 2001.” says Sean Whitfield, Director of Marketing for Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems.  “The introduction of this new product, with additional capacity expansion soon to come, as well as extending our current service intervals to satisfy our customers needs demonstrates our commitment to continuous product improvement and innovation.”
Available in capacities from 8,000 to 14,600 lbs. per axle, STEERTEK™ NXT is approved for on-highway & medium duty truck bus and motor home applications.  For additional information on STEERTEK™ NXT, please contact Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems at 630-910-2800 or
