Electric Vehicle Suspension Availability

Reyco Granning 79KB Suspension Available on Electric Vehicles

The Reyco Granning 79KB suspension is the standard offering on the recently announced Kenworth K270E and K370E battery electric vehicles.  Enhanced ride comfort offered by the long parabolic springs and durability provided by rugged cast components make the Reyco Granning 79KB the ideal suspension for last mile delivery and work truck applications.

The 79KB is the most customizable suspensions available for Class 5 through 8 trucks.  The system is available in a variety of capacities with options that include: stabilizer bar, taper leaf springs, helper springs, shock absorbers, and disc brake compatibility.  A new high capacity variant with 35,000 lb. GAWR allows customers to configure a 4X2 with a GVW that would have required a 6X4 in the past.

The Reyco Granning 79KB and the Kenworth battery electric trucks combine for a perfect marriage of technology.

Mt. Vernon, MOReyco Granning partners on a new variant of the 23AR

Reyco Granning has developed and launched a 23AR variant that has a GVWR of 42,000 lbs. and is used to transport back hoe loaders and skid steer loaders. Reyco Granning’s air-ride suspension system provides enhanced trailer performance through reduced absorbed energy, vehicle height management, and additional equipment protection for this unique application.

Reyco Granning preset hub with hub oil ensures that wheel end play is adjusted correctly the first time leading to longer equipment life, lower overall maintenance costs and improved safety for equipment and passengers.

“Our engineers worked from concept to production to custom develop this product that they needed, when they needed it.  This is not something that had to be designed around or make work,” said John Hinz VP of Engineering.

New Weight Variant for the 102AR HD

Reyco Granning |

Mt. Vernon, MOReyco Granning releases a new 35,000 lb. GAWR version of their 102AR-HD suspension. This increases the capacity range of the 102AR-HD family from the 27,000 lb. variant that was released last year.  It also acts as an air suspension upgrade compliment to the 79KB leaf spring suspension that was already available in 27,000 and 35,000 lb. capacities.

The new higher capacity allows customers to carry additional gear or to revert from a 6X4 specification down to a 4X2.  A heavy single axle in lieu of a tandem results in a lower cost vehicle with a shorter wheelbase and tighter turn radius.

The 102AR HD variant is an ideal choice for extreme-duty fire and rescue, “This product is a field-proven cousin to the 102AR that has capably served the heavy vehicle industry since 1985.  It was developed for the specific load carrying needs of the fire and rescue market” according to John Stuart, President of Reyco Granning.

For more information on the 102AR-HD or any of the WorkMaster® family of suspensions please visit our website at https://reycogranning.com/suspensions/model-102ar-hd/
