As part of International Truck’s commitment to providing safe and reliable trucks, the Bendix ADB22X disc brake from Bendix Spicer Foundation Brake LLC features a lightweight air disc brake design that allows for increased payload, helps reduce stopping distance considerably and extends brake system life.

Both the HV Series and HX Series are purpose-built to deliver uptime for a full range of severe service applications. Redesigned from the inside out, the HV Series interior was crafted with driver and body company feedback to ensure the most comfortable and productive environment possible, while the exterior continues with powerful styling. The HV Series features the intelligence of the industry-leading Diamond Logic® electrical system for the automation of tasks and interlocks to help protect both equipment and crew. Furthermore, both HV Series and HX Series trucks offer customers an incredibly versatile foundation for any configuration necessary to be productive at any job and include power options like the International® A26, an engine designed with uptime in its DNA.
