In the demanding world of trucking, durability and reliability are paramount. JOST International’s Extreme Duty upgrades are engineered to withstand the toughest conditions. These products are designed to offer maximum reliability, longevity, and performance, making them ideal for heavy-duty applications.

Extreme Durability: Wear Resistant Cushion Foot

The abrasive nature of pavement can significantly wear down standard landing gear shoes. JOST’s wear-resistant cushion foot is built with 450 HBW abrasion-resistant steel, lasting up to 2.5 times longer than conventional options. This extreme durability ensures that your landing gear can withstand harsh environments, reducing the need for frequent replacements and maintenance. The unique octagon shape allows for quick identification and easy retrofitting onto existing cushion foot landing gears.

Extreme Cushion: Double Cushion Foot

Designed for high-impact environments, the double cushion foot offers superior shock absorption. This innovative design features twice the cushion inside the shoe, allowing the landing gear to absorb greater impacts without sustaining damage. This not only protects the landing gear but also ensures the safety and integrity of your trailer. The double cushion foot reduces stress when the leg impacts the ground with significant force, preserving the internal workings of the leg.

Enhanced Protection: Dual Elevation Nut

Landing gear collapse can be a costly and dangerous problem. The dual elevation nut provides an extra layer of protection by adding a second elevation nut inside the leg. This secondary nut acts as a backup, catching the leg if the primary nut fails, and significantly reducing the risk of collapse. This feature, combined with the double cushion foot, enhances the overall stability and reliability of the landing gear system. The dual elevation nut also minimizes drastic trailer movement in case of primary nut damage, offering the best market value for increased collapse protection.

 

Ergonomic Design: Robust Crank Handle

Operating landing gear can be physically demanding. JOST’s ergonomic and robust crank handle is designed to make this task easier and more efficient. Available in both powder-coated and hot-dipped galvanized finishes, this handle features a larger grip for better control and ease of use. This design ensures that the handle is durable, easy to operate, and resistant to wear and tear. The handle’s ergonomic grip enhances two-handed cranking, providing superior operational comfort.

JOST International’s Extreme Duty supplements for landing gears and fifth wheels offer unparalleled durability, protection, and ease of use. These products are specifically designed to endure the heavy wear and tear common in high-demand trucking applications. By investing in JOST’s Extreme Duty products, you can enhance the reliability and longevity of your equipment, ensuring safer and more efficient operations. Learn more here.
