Oskaloosa, IA (April 24, 2013) – Kelderman Air Suspension Systems now offers a 2-Stage Rear Suspension System Bus Air Kit for bus and transit systems that provides dramatically improved ride comfort. The 2-Stage system is made of 3/8” steel, provides excellent roll resistance and a comfortable 2”-3” of additional travel. The kit comes complete with all necessary components and a built in dryer. No air tank is needed. It is virtually maintenance free and comes with a three-year parts and labor warranty.
The kits are available for Ford F-350, Ford F-450, Ford F-550, Ford E-350, Ford E-450, and Terrastar chassis systems. They have recently grown in popularity with local churches, nursing homes, universities, hotels, airports, casinos, limos and paratransit bus networks. Kelderman is proud to be working so closely with industry icons such as Glaval, Executive Coach Builders, Tiffany Coachworks, Turtle Top, Ameritrans, Star Trans Bus, El Dorado National and LGE Coachworks.
Ron Biss, a long time advocate for accessible transportation in MN, sits on advisory committees for accessible transportation. He recently completed a test ride on a brand new paratransit bus equipped with this Kelderman Suspension. The frequent ongoing complaint he hears is how rough paratransit buses ride, and as a wheelchair user himself, he was the perfect candidate for the test ride. “Many of the people who ride paratransit suffer with pain from injuries and disease, and a great many are elderly. It is difficult for them to tolerate the jarring and vibration typical of these buses,” stated Biss. “Expecting an uncomfortable, tortuous ride, I was surprised by no jarring and very little vibration. I’m convinced that a Kelderman add on air suspension system would be welcomed by many of those in the community of paratransit riders.”
Kelderman Air Suspension Systems, with over 40 years of operation, also offers a full line of air suspension systems for ambulances, light and medium duty trucks, motor coaches and trailers, as well as agricultural equipment.
