LS-60 Rear

LS-60 Rear

89,000 lbs. GVWR

The LS-60 rear was designed for applications that have limited clear frame space behind the rear tires. Continental managed to keep all the features we are known for while adding the ability to side shift and decreased the footprint to mount the hi-rail (14” of clear frame required). Hardened steel bushings are used at all pivot points to reduce the wear of larger weldments over the life of the unit.
