Link Mfg., Ltd. announces the introduction of its 52K Air Link Gen 3 Tandem Drive Suspension.

  • Air-over-walking-beam suspension design
  • Specifically reconfigured to meet the needs of states, municipalities and road maintenance contractors using tire chains on heavy vocational equipment with 315 tires
  • Features maintenance advantages
  • Weighs about 875 lbs. (396.9 kg), 50 lbs. (22.7 kg) lighter than predecessor and competing offerings
  • Reengineered specifically to improve clearance for 315 tires and chains while maintaining ride quality
  • Updates include lengthened hanger brackets, heavy-duty dampers moved forward, center bushings raised, and optimized vertical distance between trailing arm and walking beam pivots 
  • Larger, high-volume, low-frequency air springs deliver smoother ride whether the vehicle is under load or empty
  • Dual height-control valves maintain proper ride height, leveling vehicle independent of load and maximizing its roll stability
  • Enables easier service and demands less maintenance
  • Anti-corrosive polyurethane bushings require no lubrication, and trailing arm bushings can be easily replaced with hanging brackets in situ
  • Features lower number of moving parts, extra-large bearing surfaces, more brawny main components and higher level of load-bearing redundancy
  • No future adjustments are required once wheel alignment is set 
  • Delivers smooth comfortable ride, resulting in less driver fatigue and equipment damage
  • High roll stability, coupled with equal weight distribution to both axles, means safer operation on-highway, off-highway and in all weather conditions  
  • 100% off-highway rated
  • Three times more roll stability than other vocational air-ride suspensions
  • Rides four times smoother than conventional spring pack and 10 times smoother than rubber block suspension
  • Treated with Link’s exclusive Link-KOAT migratory self-healing metal treatment, providing corrosion resistance and rust protection
