Intelligent independent suspension

The lack of a traditional driveline and axles allows the adoption of intelligent independent suspension. This not only offers a more comfortable ride for the operator, with fewer vibrations entering the cab, but also allows for variable ride height.

The frame can be lowered for high speed haul cycles, reducing the centre of gravity and making much higher speeds than is currently possible with no lost of comfort or stability.

The frame can also be raised; increasing ground clearance over rough ground and offering greater dump heights while maintaining stability.
