A heavy duty oscillating fifth wheel designed to operate on rough and uneven terrain.Maximum Vertical Load: 34,000 kg D-value (EC): 240 kN (3.5' Version)D-Value (ADR): 270 kN (3.5' Version) Product notice: the FW2080 for 2' kingpins is discontinued
The FW2080 is a heavy duty oscillating fifth wheel designed to provide both front-to-rear and side-to-side oscillation between the tractor and semi-trailer; for moderate to heavy application vehicles that operate on rough and uneven terrain.The FW2080 features:· a fully oscillating design· a forged, machined, and heat-treated steel lock jaw· easy lock adjustment with infinite lock positions· cast-in grease grooves for extended grease life and easy application
A fifth wheel designed to provide both front-to-rear and side-to-side oscillation between the tractor and semi-trailer; for vehicles that operate on rough and uneven terrain (mining, logging, etc.). The oscillation is provided by the use of an undercarriage employing both transverse and longitudinal shafts. The side-to-side oscillation pivot point is located below the fifth wheel bearing surface.For applications where minimizing torque and twist transfer through the fifth wheel is beneficial. Used where center of gravity is equal to or below fifth wheel height.
Integrated grease grooves improve grease retention and distribution, which provides superior durability.
