WOODRIDGE, Ill. — Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems has expanded its Steertek NXT portfolio of fabricated front steer axles to include 10K and 12K capacities for the bus and medium-duty truck segments.

These new configurations are now available to order on International MV trucks and IC Bus CE Series buses as optional equipment, according to a news release from Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems.

Hendrickson’s proprietary design and manufacturing process is designed to save weight compared to traditional I-beam axles while combining strength, maneuverability, and reduced maintenance. These new axles come with a best in class service interval of 40,000 miles and feature an exclusive 10-year, 1-million-mile warranty.

Available in capacities from 10,000 to 14,600 pounds per axle, Steertek NXT is approved for on-highway and medium-duty truck, bus, and motor home applications, according to the supplier.
