Tennant Transport switches to SAF axles . . .


Tennant Transport switches to SAF axles

Tennant Transport of Forth has taken delivery of its first order of flat and tipper trailers with SAF axle and suspension systems as standard.

The haulier has purchased an initial 12 flat trailers and two tipper trailers as additions to its existing trailer fleet.

“We have had running gear on our trailers for a number of years from an alternative axle supplier, but found the spring trailer arms were breaking after one year on the flats,” said John Tennant, director at Tennant Transport. “Plus we had constant issues with u-bolts on the tippers coming loose.

“Once we heard about the benefits of the SAF Intradrum from Craig Lawton, the area manager for Scotland at [SAF-Holland distributor] IMS Ltd, we were more than happy to switch,” he continued.

“The proven integrated suspension system from SAF does not have spring or u-bolts and will reduce our maintenance costs for the future, which is very good news for us as we continue to expand.”

The SAF Intradrum is an integrated, cost-efficient and easy-to-maintain air suspension system, says IMS, with strengthened components for severe loads and a claimed 40 per cent fewer parts than rivals.

SAF Intradrum products come with a competence guarantee of 1 million kilometres up to six years on the complete unit for on-road versions, and 500,000 kilometres up to three years on the complete unit for the off-road versions.
