Focus On… TRW ReAX Power Steering
Shot on location at the 2015 Mid-America Trucking Show.
Power steering for big trucks hasn’t changed much in quite a long time. TRW Systems is about to pump some long overdue fresh air into that market with a slick new electrically assisted hydraulic power steering set up, named ReAX.
It’s not what you think. This system is controlled to make steering much more precise and much easier at low speeds, and stiffer at highway speeds. It gives us the best of both worlds; firm stable steering on the highway and one-finger-easy steering at a crawl.
Check out this Focus On… video and you’ll see what I mean – and, I think, like what you see.
