Steerable pusher axles


Active member
Anyone got any input on steerable pusher axles? Looking at about a 13000# for a dump truck. Any experiences with good or bad brands, ones to stay away from? Any input will be appreciated.

We run Hendrickson and have run Watson Chalin and Van Raydan. The newer Hendrickson SCT 13 is a good setup, kingpins and bushings are real easy to service.
It uses two piece spindles and the upper and lower bushings come as a unit that presses in. The axle like all later Hendrickson's are fabricated. Personally I like
the Hendrickson because of parts availability.
