German equipment specialist Jost will use the upcoming Automechanika show in Dubai to showcase its range of Mercedes-Benz trailer axle systems for the first time in the MENA region.
Jost has announced that the DCA Steermaster trailer steering axle will be the model on display at the show.
Manufactured and distributed by the newly founded Jost Achsen Systeme GmbH in Kassel-Calden, the Mercedes-Benz range of products includes disc-braked semi-trailer axles for standard, mega and distribution vehicle applications as well as steered trailer axles.
According to Jost, every product in the range features the DCA (Durable Compact Axle), which integrates axle tube, trailing arm, brake flange and axle journal in one unit.
“This design makes for an extremely light but nevertheless robust construction. All axles of the DCA Family have ventilated disc brakes with a particularly weight-saving design,” the company said in a statement.
