After successful tests in Germany and Austria, in February 2020 Hendrickson Europe fitted their 48t- ULTIMAAX® as rear axle suspension to a Ford 4142D tipper at Ayyildiz company in Istanbul-Silivri, TURKEY. The fleet holds 450 vehicles (tippers and cement mixers) in the dump material business. 

Mr. Savaş, the driver is very pleased with the handling of the truck, “there is no bounce in the cabin in unladen condition, as when with 40t of payload. It rides like a bus”. Mr. Irfan Ayyildiz, the fleet manager commented the “system articulates very well”. The truck with ULTIMAAX® is in use for more than 5 weeks and the feeling is great. Mr. Savaş says „It is more comfortable than I would have thought, it is quiet, no spring squeaking noise and offers greater articulation”.
