All medium duty models utilise long taper leaf springs at the front of the vehicle, matched to double acting telescopic shock absorbers. There are also multi leaf front spring options for extra heavy duty applications.
UD is the only Japanese truck manufacturer to offer the option of either steel leaf or air bag rear suspension across the entire Australian medium duty range. All MK models can be optioned with Hendrickson HAS200 rear air suspension.
Brakes - ABS
UD Trucks has taken a proactive stance in safety with the inclusion of ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) and wheel park brake as standard features across the entire truck range.
ABS enables drivers to maintain steering control under severe braking conditions in an emergency or low traction conditions. MK models feature a Bosch four channel ABS system.
Easy Hill Start
EHS (Easy Hill Start) is standard fit for MK 11 250 and MK 11 280 manual models. This ensures a smooth and safe start on steep inclines by applying the vehicle brakes automatically and releasing them on take-off. This also reduces clutch wear and prevents the possibility of the truck rolling backwards.
