Bogie lifting axle

The 6×2T and 6×2R configurations can be provided with a bogie lifting axle which is used to lift the axle in the unladen condition. The lifting function on the third axle gives the truck more traction when activated. It also gives you better fuel consumption, extended tyre life and a smaller turning radius. It can be supplied with bogie press which is used when higher traction is required.
