January 2020 | Overdrive | 39 AWD conversion Marmon-Herrington's AWD Conversion option is designed to minimize cab height increase from 10 inches to 5 inches and employs the company's sub-frames, step- frames and front suspension configurations. The conversion is available for Class 7 and 8 trucks (14,000-22,000-lb. front-axle weight ratings) and is available across truck models based on engine and transmission configurations. The design supports the latest generation of aerials with the company's double-reduction planetary front-drive axle that distributes input torque across the entire axle, allowing for a compact ring and pinion gear set that reduces the size of the center section and increases ground clearance and durability. marmon-herrington.com, 800-227-0727 Lightweight trailer suspension Meritor's MTA-Tec6 Lightweight Trailer Suspension is engineered for capacities up to 23,000 pounds for flatbeds, tankers and other vocational applications. Both the standard fully-dressed top and low mounts are designed for weight savings. The suspension is built with the company's 6-inch-diameter MTec6 axle designed for increased stiffness to deliver better tire- to-road contact. The plug-and-play design is interchangeable with other trailing-arm air-ride suspensions and fits within the narrow hanger footprint of current trailer configurations to facilitate easy installa- tion. The company's proprietary bolt-on cam bushing design allows for camshaft service without removing the hub. meritor.com/driveforce, 866-668-7221 Cordless ratchet Snap-on's 14.4-Volt Hex Drive Long Neck Cordless Ratchet has a low tapered head and a 13¾-inch length designed to pro- vide added reach and accessibility. The tool features 35 lb.-ft. of torque output, 46 lb.-ft. of manual torque load and a variable trig- ger speed to help tackle tough fas- teners. Battery life can be monitored with the fuel gauge, and an LED head- light and an over- molded cushion grip help facilitate comfortable use. snapon.com, 877-762-7664 Improved winches Kinedyne's redesigned winches have a working load limit of 6,670 pounds and a black matte powder-coated finish. The company offers weld-on, portable, sliding, double-L sliding and combination winch styles. All now feature reduced weight for easier handling and a Thumb Saver pawl to facilitate easier operation, even with gloved hands. All of Kinedyne's 3-bar winches also now feature the Thumb Saver pawl as well as increased spacing between the bars from 0.75 inches to 1.13 inches. The 3-bar winch reel design helps simplify strap insertion. kinedyne.com, 800-848-6057
