The PW 24 280 introduces the heavy duty Gen 5 Allison 3500 series 6 speed Automatic. Featuring lower starting gear ratios and improved gradeability this transmission is ideally suited to
applications where higher levels of torque are required. With PTO (power take-off) capabilities for varying applications.
Allison 3500 series transmission features Electronic Brake Interface technology, EBI. This technology provides additional Engine braking assistance by controlling transmission downshifting during deceleration to increase Engine brake efficiency under all conditions when the Engine exhaust brake is activated.
UD Trucks PW24 280 uses Long taper leaf springs with double acting Shock absorbers on the front, while the rear rides on a choice of UD Trucks 6 rod trunion leaf suspension or the versatile Hendrickson HAS 460 air bag suspension.
FUPS & Cab Strength
FUPS is designed to ensure the safety features fitted to passenger cars, such as air bags and crumple zones, are deployed during a front-on collision with a heavy vehicle.
UD Trucks achieve the high level of cab strength required to meet ADR and ECE-R29 certification, when integrated with FUPS, this allows an increase to the legal Front axle limit raising allowable GVM by an extra 500 kg.
