Daimler Trucks North America is now offering the Hadley SmartValve electronic height control system as an option on new trucks.

SmartValve, introduced as a retrofit system in 2013, is designed to make drop-and-hook operations faster, easier and safer.

It reduces back strain and injuries for the driver, who doesn’t need to struggle against the weight of the trailer when cranking landing gear, the company said.

“The Hadley SmartValve was developed to enhance driver comfort and safety,” Jim Green, president of Hadley, said in a statement. “For the fleet owners the cost savings and driver satisfaction are an added bonus.”

Daimler offers SmartValve data code for new vehicles

Fleet Owner  /  May 31, 2016

Freightliner Data Code now available for ordering Hadley’s electronic control system on new 6x4 trucks

DTNA announced customers can now specify the Hadley SmartValve, replacing the standard leveling valve, using Data Code, 888-082. According to the company, Freightliner is the first manufacturer to respond to this market demand with an active Data Code.

The SmartValve was introduced to the industry for retrofit in 2013, appealing to truck drivers and fleet managers alike. According to the company, since then, truck operators have expressed an overwhelming preference for SmartValve, and its unique features.

“For the driver, the SmartValve greatly reduces back strain and injuries. Drivers don’t struggle against the weight of the trailer when cranking landing gear,” Daimler said. “Fleets benefit further through dramatically reduced workers’ compensation, improving driver satisfaction and reducing turnover rates.”

“The Hadley SmartValve was developed to enhance driver comfort and safety,” said Jim Green, president of Hadley.  “For the Fleet owners the cost savings and driver satisfaction are an added bonus.  We are excited to see the SmartValve now be accessible to even more drivers and fleets.”

The data code is for use at Freightliner’s PDI centers. Contact your Freightliner Sales Person and request code 888-082.
