Hendrickson’s OPTIMAAX® system is a revolutionary 6×2 solution to
help fleets save fuel cost, tire wear and weight with comparable handling
to 6×4 tandem axle configurations. Operating as a liftable axle in the
forward tandem position, this system provides versatility for fleets with
variable loads. The OPTIMAAX system is ideal for fleets in need of
additional flexibility for on-highway tractor applications.
Proprietary program logic controls lift axle movement, load transfer
Axle configuration saves weight and can help improve fuel economy
Lifted axle provides increased traction by increasing drive axle load
Axle lowered for 6×2 configuration — The OPTIMAAX system senses higher load conditions and lowers the non-drive axle
Axle lifted for 4×2 configuration — The OPTIMAAX system senses lighter load conditions and lifts the non-drive axle
Actual product performance may vary depending upon liftable axle and vehicle configuration, operation, service and other factors.
