Improves fatigue resistance
The Accuride Accu-Lite 38 lb Aluminum Wheel,
No. 43644, is the newest addition to the AccuLite Aluminum Wheels line. The combination of
Accuride's unique manufacturing processes with
the performance of Quantum 99
alloy allows Accuride
to control the
grain structure
through the
wheel and
fatigue resistance. This
also helps make
the wheel stronger and maintain
the wheel's service life
while also lightening the wheel to help improve fuel
savings. The 43644 is 22.5" by 8.25" and has 10 bolt
holes. The 43644 aluminum wheel will be available
third quarter 2020.

Monitors wheel end
vibration and temperature
The SKF TraX Wheel End Monitor (WEM) is
designed to intelligently monitor wheel end vibration and temperature to detect any potential issues
on heavy duty vehicles. It notifies fleets and the
driver in advance via wireless communication of any
potential wheel end condition that could compromise performance and safety. The TraX WEM is integrated with existing Truck-Lite Road Ready telematics systems via its SmartBridge Integrator (SBI).
Commercial vehicle customers who are not using
telematic providers may download and subscribe
to the SKF TraX app to check wheel end status and
receive alerts on their iOS-based mobile platforms.

Prevents lights from flickering
The Sure Shim Pigtail Plug
Safety Shim is designed
to fit over the trailer plug to
prevent lights from flickering
and turning off, protecting the drivers, equipment, and freight in tow. When the
plug is plugged into the trailer receptacle with the sleeve shim, it is seated firmly
without any movement. The prongs won't wear and a solid connection can be
expected, the company says. The safety shims are made of a proprietary blend
of polypropylene with additives that protect from UV rays, corrosives, and temperatures down to -25 degrees F.

Permanent or hardwired remote control options
The Golight GT Series has been updated to provide a
higher torque drivetrain, more precise tilt control, and
increased ingress protection from dust and water. The
remote control spotlights feature 10 high flux LEDs,
360-degrees rotation, 135-degrees tilt, and a maximum
beam distance of 4,839'. The spotlights can be mounted permanently using a
14 gauge stainless steel mounting bracket or can be portable by an industrial
strength magnetic grip. They can also be wireless or hardwired. The resistance
levels associated with shock, vibration, and impact have also been enhanced.
The GT Series comes with a three-year limited warranty.

Driven by a 48V electric motor
The American Eagle 30P-E Electric
Compressor is driven by a 48V electric motor
and controller in lieu of a traditional hydraulic
system. This allows the compressor to be paired
with work trucks that are built on an electric hybrid chassis platform. Whether
the work truck is a van or a traditional service body, the compressor is designed
to provide an air source for pneumatic needs. The compressor's small footprint,
along with its weight of 225 lbs, makes it an ideal addition to a hybrid work truck
where higher air consumption is needed. The 30P-E produces a maximum air
output of 30 cfm and up to 150 psi of air pressure.

Haul up to 9.75 cubic yards of concrete

The International Truck Lightweight HV50B
Mixer package removes over 1,000 lbs of
weight from the vehicle with engineering optimizations that allow drivers to haul up to 9.75
cubic yards of concrete while staying under
66,000 lbs GVW. The HV50B was designed specifically for saving pounds that don't affect the integrity of the vehicle and features
an all-aluminum, lighter bumper that is used on the International HX series. In
addition, the front suspension components allow for a lower hood height which
provides increased visibility for the driver and improved safety on the work site.
