Hydro-Pneumatic Suspension can be supplied with a control system to allow the suspension setup to maintain a constant ride height regardless of the vehicle load. This setup is advantageous to vehicle applications that require a constant working ride height. Hydraulic suspension is very advantageous to the constantly hanging loads on agricultural machinery during operation. This suspension setup also provides a more stable and consistent centre of gravity thus improving control of the vehicle at a range of speeds and cornering.
Using dual acting rams in this suspension setup allows for future expansion with developing controls systems capable of “slope control” during off-road operations. This will actively keep the load/trailer body in a vertical position when operating on uneven ground to improve safety and further reduce the risk of vehicle rolling.
The Dual Acting Ram allows an axle to be lifted when the trailer is unladen, this helps in the reduction of tyre wear.
