The patented Nugent Dual Drive™ parabolic suspension system modernises the trailer.
Nugent trailers now feature Dual Drive™ as standard, overcoming the shortcomings of traditional suspension systems.
Inserting a secondary rubber damper between the chassis, along with a unique pivot slipper plate, an additional suspension element ensures springs are fully engaged on compression and rebound cycles to cancel out vibration and reduce suspension chatter. With additional damping effect, it also reduces stresses on the chassis, body frame, tow couplings and limits shock waves to the vehicle.
Nugent’s design gives all the advantages of parabolic, with the additional benefits associated with suspension axles – in one system. This utilises the extended load carrying capacity and durability of the parabolic spring suspension. The reduced vibrations ensure that there is much less wear and tear on the chassis, giving the trailer a longer service life and therefore less maintenance costs!
