Bose Ride System
Utility trucks need stiff suspensions for stability on the job. Lineworkers pay for stiff suspensions with back pain and fatigue, and companies pay with lost productivity. The Bose Ride system solves these problems by actively counteracting unwanted road vibration to improve ride quality.
In a recent evaluation conducted at a major utility company, lineworkers unanimously rated the Bose Ride system as providing a smoother ride in bucket trucks previously rated as rough-riding. Objective engineering measurements from that evaluation demonstrated that the Bose Ride system greatly reduced road shock and vibration felt by drivers in utility trucks. www.boseride.com/utility
