October 22, 2014 By: Trucking News Staff Tags: Equipment, Technology

JOST International has added Edbro hydraulic cylinders to its range of products available in the United States. Edbro has been manufacturing hydraulic cylinders for more than a century with a reputation for safety and reliability of their products. The new Edbro Ultra range of hydraulic cylinders now available in the U.S. were developed to be lighter, stronger and faster than competitive products.

Edbro’s laser welding technology, along with the use of lighter but stronger materials and new low-friction bearings, offer users requiring hydraulic cylinders on their trailers the best possible solution.

The benefits of Edbro hydraulic cylinders include:

  • An estimated 20 percent weight savings over competitive products for increased payload
  • Faster tipping speeds
  • Low friction bearings for smoother lowering
  • Greater lift and side load capacity

JOST has been manufacturing fifth wheel coupling devices globally for the trucking industry since 1956 and began manufacturing for the North America market at its Greeneville, Tenn., facility in 2000.
