Miller Releases 5" HD Forks

12 433abMiller Industries worked directly with axle and chassis original equipment manufacturers to revamp the current version of the popular towing fork to meet the new wider axles found on newer over-the-road LTL truck chassis. The updated towing forks are cast with a wider base (throat) than the industry standard 4.5" towing fork. The wider 5" fork makes it so that all three versions (short, medium, tall) are no longer put in a "point-load moment" because the base of the axle now sits in the base of the fork. The 5" fork will become standard on all Miller 20-ton and above units. It will be available as an option on all smaller units or for individual orders.

More Cranking Amps for Weego 44, 66

product 8a6c2Weego's new jump-starting compact power packs, Weego 44 and Weego 66, are spec'd out with 10-percent more true cranking amps. Weego 66 now offers 660 cranking amps (2,500 peak amps), while Weego 44 increased to 440 cranking amps (2,100 peak amps). The power packs were built for outdoor enthusiasts and professionals alike, according to the company, "including tow operators doing multiple jumps a day." The Weego 44 also now includes AutoBoost technology (already built into the 66). The technology enhances the jump-starting experience for low-voltage vehicle batteries. With AutoBoost, maximum power is automatically sent to dead batteries (down to 0.5 volt) without an override button, which can compromise safety.
