Tandem Lift Axle
More fuel-efficient. Better traction. And a tighter turning circle. Tandem Axle Lift lets you disengage and raise one of the drive axles - giving you the traction and load capacity of a four-wheel drive, with the driveability and efficiency of a two-wheel-drive.
Save up to 4% fuel
Drive axles produce friction and rolling resistance – which increases the amount of fuel you have to use. By disengaging and raising the axle when you don’t need it, you can reduce your fuel consumption up to 4% on a return trip with axle lifted. And significantly boosts your bottom line.
When the axle is raised, the truck behaves similar to a 4x2 or a 6x2, resulting in a tighter turning radius and significantly improving manoeuvrability. A 6×4 with a 4.6 metres wheelbase, for example, can reduce its turning radius by over a metre.
Get a grip
Need more traction? If the axle load limits allow, simply press a button on the dash and you can shift the weight to one drive axle. You can even do it while driving at low speeds.
