The Hutch 9800 Series of heavy-duty trailer slider systems offers a multitude of options and models to suit most needs, according to Hutchens Industries.
The system offers eight models in the line and fits the requirements for a standard 49 in. tandem axle or a widespread axle application. With subframe heights from 8.5 to 10.5 in. deep, the system provides a wide variety of mounting heights and weight capacities up to 25,000 lbs. per axle when used with the Hutch 9700 Series suspension.
Each model comes standard with the EZ-Pull pin release system with an optional Hutch P3 air-actuated system available. The models cover a range of widths and body rail lengths.
According to Hutchens, benefits of the 9800 Series include full-length slider pads made from UHMW material; symmetrical crossmembers for more uniform stress distribution; side rails made from high-strength, low-alloy steel; “slot welding” that keeps the edges of the side rails and crossmembers weld-free; pre-punched holes for easy air line access; and spring loaded, forged 1⅝ in. lock pins to ensure secure slider placement.
