ADZ Heavy-Duty Truck and Tractor Drive Axle
The ADZ is the industry’s lightest weight heavy-duty on and off-road drive axle air-ride suspension on the market.
Simplified design and innovative construction reduces overall vehicle weight by up to 250 lbs.
Unheard-of in a 100% off-road capable vocational suspension!
In addition, the ADZ’s durability out-performs previous designs by 54% and widens the gap on competitive models.
Industry's Best Stability
The NEWAY ADZ design features a linear roll rate that provides the industry's best roll stability.
With its widened stance, integral lower control arm, and V-rod upper controls arms the ADZ achieves a lower roll-rate which greatly enhances vehicle stability.
This leads to greater driver comfort, confidence, and safety for your operation.
The one-piece lower control arm reduces weight, reduces maintenance (fewer bushings), and greatly increases roll stability.
The V-rod replaces traditional track bars and torque rods to provide enhanced durability and reliability when distributing load forces.
54% more durable.
ADZ has been shown to be a whopping 54% more durable than our previous designs. That’s a long-lasting suspension!
Part of what led to this was the greatly increased articulation range. Components aren’t stressed, and wheels stay on the ground.
23,000 lbs (10,433 kg) to 78,000 lbs (35,380 kg)
A configuration for virtually any application.
ADZ can be engineered for your single, tandem, or tridem configurations.
Maintenance & Warranty
Reduced Maintenance Costs
Fewer components means ADZ is easier and less costly to maintain:
- Half the number of bushings versus nearest competitor.
- No specialized parts or extra hardware added.
- Increased (and proven) overall durability.
3-Year Warranty Coverage*
Unlike the 1-year warranty on the Hendrickson PRIMAXX®, the NEWAY ADZ has the confidence to cover you for a full 3 YEARS.
3 years of heavy loads and rough roads, all while reducing overall maintenance for your operation.
* Limitations apply. Please see the NeWay Motorized Commercial Vehicle Suspensions warranty document for full details.
Disc Brake Compatibility
No special torque rods required!
The ADZ design geometry allows for both drum brakes and disc brakes WITHOUT requiring special torque rods unlike our nearest competitor.
This reduces complexity, weight, and maintenance for your operations.
