FW35 and FW33 with ELI-te™

ELI-te™

Electronic Lock Indicator Technology Enhanced system is an optional LED coupling-assist feature for the FW35 and FW33 HOLLAND Fifth Wheels

Flashing red lights indicate a failed attempt.

Solid white lights shine brightly on the lock, providing illumination of the fifth wheel lock to assist driver inspection.

This exclusive HOLLAND brand innovation provides drivers with LED light indicators for quick recognition of a successful or failed coupling attempt.

Driver and Fleet Benefits are measured in the reduction of incidents involving non-coupled trailers and an increased level of driver coupling confidence!

In-Cab Air Release (ICR)

Optional Air Release
for FW35 and FW33

Optional In-Cab Air Release (ICR) system improves productivity and helps protect the driver. The ICR system allows drivers to quickly and safely uncouple the fifth wheel using an in-cab switch.

The Fleet Advantanges

Driver efficiency is raised:
The HOLLAND Air Release system helps drivers stay on schedule … more time on the road, less time outside the cab.
 
Driver safety on the job is improved:
Less strain, fatigue, and the potential for injury, especially when in bad weather or when access to the release handle is difficult.
 
Driver comfort improves performance:
Hands and clothes free of grease and grime mean less time with unnecessry cleanup and more time getting the job done.

How it Works

1. Set the tractor parking brake to activate the system.
 
2. Hold the dash-mounted toggle switch to activate a pneumatic cylinder on the fifth wheel to open the lock.
 
System allows for manual release operation, if necessary.

FW33 LowLube

Reduced-Grease Operation

Reduce fleet maintenance costs while retaining fifth wheel performance. HOLLAND LowLube top plates feature durable, replaceable lube plates, and grease-free articulation pocket liners. Now only the fifth wheel lock mechanism requires grease.

How it Works

1. Advanced Lube Plate Design.
Polyethylene material is molded around a honeycomb pattern steel reinforcement plate to create a wear, peel, and warp resistant lube plate.
 
2. Replaceable Lube Plate
With easy access lube plate fasteners. Available from SAF-HOLLAND Original Parts.
 
3. NoLube™ Articulation Pocket Liners.
Reduce maintenance and prolonged top plate life.

ALCOA Aluminum Technology

Up to 100 lbs. Lighter vs Equivalent Standard Duty Top Plates

Forged Aluminum Technology

ALCOA is the trusted leader in the aerospace and defense industries for ultra-strong, yet lightweight aluminum technology.

The FWAL is built with the same aluminum grade as military tank and truck wheels.

It is then forged in a 35,000 ton press and precision machined for unmatched strength and weight savings.

$300 Cost Savings Per Year

Without a greasy fifth wheel top plate surface, fleets can save on average more than $300 per year, per fifth wheel:

  • $143 of grease costs per year (avg. $2.75 per pound, 1 lb. application per week)
  • $175+ of labor costs per year (avg. $10.25 per hour, 20 mins. per week)

 

* Calculations are for demonstration only, based on historical averages and recommended maintenance.

Environmental Savings

NOLUBE and LOWLUBE technology help dramatically reduce the environmental impact of tractor trailers.

Amount of grease used on fifth wheels in North America per year:

  • Would fill 24 Olympic size swimming pools
  • Is over 1,000,000 equivalent gallons greater than oil spilled by the Exxon Valdez

STATIONARY MOUNTS

HOLLAND stationary fifth wheel mounts are designed for applications where the axle loading, kingpin setting and vehicle combination length all remain constant throughout the fleet.

Stationary fifth wheel mounts are generally lighter weight and lower cost than sliding mounts, however, they do no offer the application flexibility of a sliding mount.

Available for: FW35, FW33, FWAL, FW17 and FW70

For: Standard Duty Applications

ILS SLIDERS

HOLLAND Integrated Low-Weight Slider System (ILS) utilizes a lighter weight, no welding modular design to provide significant weight savings and easy height change.

FEATURES:

  • Lighter weight without sacrificing durability and reliability
  • Single-piece, bolt-on cast bracket (low weight, easy replacement)
  • Two-piece side cushioning “up-shock” bushings
  • Slide-on (No weld), repositionable bulkhead fitting bracket
  • Same air cylinder location on all heights (includes “quick-connect” fittings)
  • 2” slide increments
  • Available for both inboard and outboard mounting


Available for: FW35, FW33, FWAL and FW17
