CANTON, OHIO (March, 2023) - Motor Wheel, a brand of Hendrickson, proudly announces the rebranding of its Crewson automatic brake adjuster product line under the Motor Wheel name. This change will be seamless to customers but aligns our brake adjuster products with the excellent reputation that the industry has come to expect from Motor Wheel and Hendrickson.

Along with the rebranding, a few changes are being implemented to enhance the product experience. These changes include:

  • The AutoCheck pointer color is changing to red to bring attention to its position
  • The AutoCheck pointer geometry, along with the clevis pin kits, are redesigned to improve functionality and versatility
  • The grease fitting is switching from a 90° fitting to a straight fitting to improve accessibility
  • Proprietary internal modifications have been made to enhance performance and durability

Motor Wheel brake adjusters will utilize the same assembly part numbers and numbering scheme making it a smooth transition.
