AL-KO Octagon axle shock absorbers improve the trailer's drive characteristics and provide optimum damping – thanks to precise, weight based, tuning.

For a long time drivers have been worried about trailer vibrations on uneven roads. Until now, conventional standard shock absorbers have barely delivered a noticeable improvement on driving safety. They are designed for a weight range that is too large (for example 0 to 4.0 t). Optimum damping was only achieved at medium trailer weights (2.0 t). Damping in the lower weight range is excessive, causing trailer bumps and jolts, while the damping in the upper weight range is inadequate. AL-KO Octagon axle shock absorbers on the other hand improve the trailer's drive characteristics and provide optimum damping – thanks to precise, weight based, tuning.

Your advantage

  • Ideal damping
  • Direct reduction of dangerous jolts
  • Greater driving stability
  • Greater braking stability
  • Optimum ground contact

What every driver of a vehicle combination dreads: oscillation of the trailer body on uneven roads. The AL-KO Octagon shock absorber immediately reduces these dangerous bumping movements.

l The rubber-mounted articulation connection eyes permit a low-wear, stress-free installation position at an angle of up to 5°.
l In contrast to commercially available shock absorbers, AL-KO Octagon shock absorbers have their bolts firmly integrated into the
shock absorber eye, which means they are part of a shock absorber's scope of delivery along with the nuts.
