HEAVY TRUCK CAB SUSPENSION FOR IMPROVED RIDE
A unique, low frequency four point cab suspension was developed around the assumption of a one degree of freedom single mass system. By placing ride improvement equipment between the frame and cab, no ride related restrictions need be placed on wheelbase, frame section, suspension systems, power trains, etc. None of the other proposed methods could achieve the same degree of improvement with such a small weight addition.
