Tru-Track Super Lite lift axleWatson & Chalin's Tru-Track Super Lite lift axle is available on Kenworth T800 and W900 trucks. The lightweight axle's capacity is 8,000 pounds and the axle assembly weighs 895 pounds, or 374 pounds less than a 13,000-pound model. Its capacity is more than enough for multi-axle dump and mixer trucks used in some bridge-formula states. The Super Lite comes with lightweight brakes and specialized hubs, and is available with 17.5-inch tires and aluminum wheels. It caster-steers so a driver needn't lift it during turns. The axle can be factory-installed in single, double and triple configurations, and in pusher or tag positions.
