AXLES & BRAKES
HiSpec use bogie type axles on tandem tankers up to 4000 gallons. The design of the bogie allows for greater movement of the axle and allows improved balance over uneven ground contours. The bogie is free to rotate around a central axis and this design is particularly suited to intensive use on uneven ground. To reduce maintenance on moving axle parts, central greasing can be specified for those hard to reach greasing points.
OPTIONS – AXLES
All HiSpec tankers are fitted with hydraulic braking as standard. All ranges except for the smaller SA-S tankers are supplied with commercial running gear and a minimum of 420×180 brake shoes as standard. For increased braking power, air over hydraulic braking can be specified. This combination of both air and hydraulic braking allows the tanker to be used with any tractor.
