A suspension system is available for Joskin tandem-axle trailers and slurry tankers. The Hydro-Tandem Roll-Over suspension has been designed to increase stability and ground clearance using two independent hydraulic circuits. Each axle is mounted on two hydraulic rams and has two half-leaves attached to a bracket located ahead of the axle to provide 25cm of suspension travel. Trailers can be supplied with the option to couple the system up to the tractor's hydraulics, allowing 125mm of height adjustment, up or down.
