Low maintenance JOST fifth-wheel couplings now standard with LubeTronic
Starting now, the low-maintenance fifth wheel couplings JSK 37CW and JSK 42W series are equipped with the LubeTronic automatic lubrication system as standard.
That means that JOST is the first and only manufacturer of fifth-wheel couplings for long-distance traffic applications which are equipped as standard with this fully automated lubrication system for the lock jaw.
The JSK 37CW and JSK 42W couplings have top plate liners which allow greaseless operation of the coupling plate, in addition to a plastic seal and maintenance-free joints or sliding bearings. With the standard mini-lubrication system LubeTronic, the lock jaw no longer needs to be lubricated, as previously necessary. The LubeTronic is mounted directly on the fifth-wheel coupling and has an integrated supply of lubricant as well as an electronic control which is supplied by a built-in battery No other source of power is needed. The LubeTronic maintains the lock jaw for three years or 300,000 kilometres fully automatically, supplying grease and thus constantly ensuring reliable and safe functioning.
