Transform Your Transport Vehicles With RedRoo Shocks Date: 25 Sep 2016

Since RedRoo Shocks introduction to the market, the Australian owned company has developed a reputation as an industry leader in producing quality, high performance shock absorbers for the heavy vehicle market. RedRoo’s loyal and passionate customer base often become advocates for the brand, reaping the benefits of RedRoo’s commitment to quality and innovation out on the road, where it matters.

Olsson’s Transport Pty Ltd is a privately owned transport company based in Warragul Victoria and operates a small fleet of long distance trucks across the country, primarily transporting machinery and building products. 

RedRoo Shocks - Olsson's Transport  RedRoo Shocks - Olsson's Transport

Owner Des Olsson was first introduced to RedRoo Shocks in 2010, soon after the purchase of a new Kenworth K108 Prime Mover. The driver commented on the harsh ride of the truck, of which Des originally put down to the short wheelbase cab over prime mover setup, but a solution needed to be found.

“Doing some research, I became aware of a shock absorber brand called RedRoo that had recently entered the market. RedRoo claimed their shocks offered improved ride quality, road handling and increased shock longevity, albeit with a slightly higher initial premium,” said Des.

RedRoo Shocks - Olsson's Transport After installing a set of RedRoo’s premium HV2000 series shock absorbers on the Kenworth, the old adage ‘you get what you pay for’ certainly came to mind for Olsson. The driver reported a substantial improvement in both ride quality and handling, which makes for a safer truck and happier driver.

“Having experienced the difference in ride quality myself, I now run RedRoo Shocks on all of our long distance trucks and even specify the fitment of RedRoo shocks on all our new trucks and trailers at time of purchase. We are also in the process of fitting them to our trailers.”

Olsson has found the RedRoo Shocks are exceeding their expectations in durability, which can be put down to the high quality components used and the thickest shaft diameter on the market. An additional benefit is that the units are fully rebuild-able, making them a long term investment for the company.

“The slightly higher initial outlay has been more than justified with the amazing results we have been able to achieve with RedRoo. Our drivers are happier and we can get on with the business of transporting goods, safely and reliably. I have no hesitation in recommending RedRoo shocks to other transport operators,” summarised Des.

RedRoo offer a range of shock absorbers that can reduce tyre wear, improve ride quality and handling characteristics whilst providing superior longevity. Models include the HV2000, HV1000, HV500 and Cab series shock absorbers.

As the slogan’s say, RedRoo Shocks are designed for performance and built to outlast. Find out how RedRoo shocks can transform your transport experience by contacting RedRoo at www.redrooshocks.com.au

Born Into Quality - The History of RedRoo Date: 19 Aug 2016

 

The year was 1999 and in a small backyard workshop in Shepparton, Victoria RedRoo Shocks as it is known today was formed. Fast forward to 2016 and RedRoo Shocks are an industry leader in quality, high performance shock absorbers for the heavy vehicle market. This is the RedRoo story.

In the world of off road racing, suspension is the most crucial component, being tested to extreme levels during competition. It was from this environment that Graeme Robertson and Ian Linklater began working on production of their own custom shock absorbers by hand. The lessons learned were transferred into the early evolutions of these highly regarded shock absorbers.

The shock absorbers were proving their worth and with interest from other off roaders, Robertson and Linklater decided to form the company ‘Roboshocks’, which would eventually become RedRoo Shocks. The key contributor to the product’s early success was word of mouth, with the unique design and durability of the shocks a main talking point for customers. Despite little marketing investment, the customer base continued to expand.

The quality and innovation being showcased by RedRoo eventually drew interest from key players in the transport industry, who were attracted to the potential of RedRoo developing shock absorbers of similar quality for the heavy vehicle market.  Combining their experience and knowledge, in 2004 the RedRoo team started development of shock absorbers tailored to the requirements of this market.

With initial testing yielding positive feedback, the new range of heavy vehicle shocks quickly grew a passionate group of users, who immediately took advantage of the reduced tyre wear, improved vehicle ride quality, stability as well as safety, all benefits of installing RedRoo shock absorbers.

With the new market and subsequent demand, Assemco, a key supplier and manufacturer to the Australian trucking industry saw the potential of Roboshocks as it was then known, joining forces to improve production and further tweak quality to unprecedented levels. The new agreement also saw the establishment of the ‘RedRoo’ name. Today the company headquarters are located in Melbourne.

“Right from the start RedRoo was all about quality. There were never any shortcuts or inferior parts used to build our shock absorbers. We wanted to let the characteristics of RedRoo shock absorbers do the talking. We have nothing but positive feedback from heavy vehicle owners who upgrade to RedRoo and that is the best recommendation we could ever get. ” said Danny Vorhauer, RedRoo Managing Director.

Now renowned as industry leading shock absorber manufacturers for the heavy vehicle market, RedRoo have utilised their experience and knowledge to present their innovative range of shock absorber offerings which include the HV2000, HV1000, HV500 and Cab series shock absorbers.

The HV2000 series are RedRoo’s premium shock absorber offering and unmatched for heavy vehicle owners looking for the ultimate solution on Australia’s often harsh and unpredictable roads. Thanks to RedRoo’s commitment to quality and performance, many of the HV2000 features filter down to the HV1000 and HV500 ranges. 

The HV range are suitable for a wide range of Prime Movers, Buses and Heavy Trailers and the beauty of the various HV series is they can be configured to virtually all heavy vehicle applications. Unlike most shock absorbers on the market, the units are also fully serviceable, for further peace of mind.

Renowned as industry leading shock absorber manufacturers for the heavy vehicle market, RedRoo have utilised their experience and knowledge to develop the all new HV1000 series.

Furthermore, RedRoo shocks, including the HV1000 series, incorporate the largest shaft diameter on the market. The larger size of unit’s ensuring they perform well, are strong and durable for the long haul.

The benefits for those investing in the HV1000 series are numerous and immediately noticeable upon first drive. A fresh, comfortable ride quality combined with the reduced tyre wear, stability as well as safety are all key factors of the HV1000’s performance.

The HV1000 is suitable for a wide range of Prime Movers, Buses and Heavy Trailers and can be configured to virtually all heavy vehicle applications. RedRoo are also proud of the fact the units are fully serviceable.

“The RedRoo HV1000 Series shock absorbers are a great bang for your buck heavy vehicle shock absorber solution. The HV1000 series offers another quality option to our range for those who may not be seeking the ultimate of ultimate shock absorbers, but still demand high levels of performance, quality and reliability” said Gerard Allen, RedRoo Business Development and Operation Manager.

RedRoo HV2000 Airkits Date: 29 Oct 2014

RedRoo Front Airkit               RedRoo Rear Airkit   

RedRoo Air Kits


One of the key benefits of a RedRoo HV2000 is the ability to change the shock absorbers dampening forces by adjusting the air pressure in the side chamber.  A RedRoo shock is factory set at 50psi, however this can be changed anywhere in the range of 20psi to 100psi to enable softer or firmer ride characteristics.  Whilst the shock can be adjusted manually via the schrader valve fitted on the side chamber (just like pumping up a tyre), as an upgrade RedRoo also offer 2 separate Air Kits. The RedRoo Front Airkit (RRK001) enables the steer shocks to be connected to the vehicles air supply and adjusted via a regulator and a RedRoo Rear Airkit (RRK002) which enables the drive shocks to be connected to the vehicles air bag suspension (if applicable).  Further details regarding each airkit are included below:
  
The RedRoo Front Airkit (RRK001) enables the customer to connect the shock absorbers from the side chamber to the vehicles air supply.  Included in the kit is a regulator, which gives the driver the ability to easily adjust the air pressure to the steer shocks. It also ensures a constant flow of air to the steer shocks at all times. One single RRK001 kit does both front shocks and has a recommended retail price of $199 + GST

To take advantage of one of the HV2000’s key benefits we recommend all drive shocks should be purchased with a RedRoo Rear Air Install kit (RRK002) where an airbag suspension is applicable.  The RedRoo Rear Air kit includes all fittings and lines required to connect RedRoo drive shocks to the vehicles air suspension, which enables the shocks to automatically adjust to suit the airbag pressure for a loaded or unloaded vehicle. One single RRK002 kit does all 4 drive shocks and has a recommended retails price of $125 + GST

For more information regarding air kits please contact us on 03 9751 7999.

Wakefield Transport Group Trial Date: 07 Feb 2014

Wakefield Transport Group

In January 2014, RedRoo Shocks commenced a trial with Wakefields Transport to test the performance of the HV2000 truck shocks in harsh conditions.

RedRoo Shocks were connected as four drive shocks to a Western Star Constellation with an Airliner rear suspension so they can read the air pressure and adjust accordingly to a loaded or unloaded configuration. RedRoo connected the two steer shocks to the vehicle’s air supply and regulated the air supply, this is to assist with the handling and control of the vehicle.

The initial comments from the driver stated that, the vehicle has better handling features and the is not jarring as much as other vehicles. We are looking forward to further results of the trial related to tyre wear and longevity.

RedRoo are excited to be conducting this trial and appreciate Wakefields support.

Technical Update Date: 06 Feb 2014

Truck Shocks Fitout

Fitting out 6 RedRoo HV200 shocks on a new Kenworth T609 for Sunraysia Transport.  The 2 steer shocks are connected to the vehicle air supply, giving the driver the ability to regulate and adjust pressure from the cab. The 4 drive shocks are connected to the Airglide suspension, which enables the shocks to read the airbag suspension and automatic adjustment to manage loaded or unloaded weights.

The end result is a better quality of ride, improved handling and less wear on tyres.

RedRoo Shocks are now available in the NT Date: 30 Jan 2014

RedRoo Shocks Welcome to 2014 Date: 30 Jan 2014

RedRoo Shocks Logo

A very warm welcome to 2014 from all of the team at RedRoo Shocks.  

Last year was a huge year for RedRoo, with significant milestones such as the finalisation of the licensing agreement with Roboshock International and our first product (HV2000) hitting the market in early December.  Months of hard work was spent on R&D, setting up new manufacturing operations and establishing the new brand, which all came to fruition when our first shocks were sent out on the 4th of December and RedRoo Shocks was officially launched.

The HV2000 shocks were in high demand with over 40% of them sold prior to our first delivery and throughout Decembe r the orders continued to flood in. To date feedback from drivers regarding the new shocks has been overwhelmingly positive. First time buyers of the product are quick to point out the improvement they have made to ride quality and handling.

During the later months of last year we also secured trials with 6 major transport fleets and added 10 dealers to our network across Australia. Numbers we predict will significantly grow throughout this year.  

We also continue to see a large number of existing Roboshock customers purchasing the RedRoo product. A trend we have identified with existing Roboshock customers has been that drive shocks have significantly outsold steers shocks. This is a clear sign that drivers are now more willing to take advantage of the ability to connect RedRoo Drive shocks to airbag suspensions, given the improved pricing structure of the product and the connection kits we now have on offer.

HV2000 Truck Shocks Trial - Noske Transport Date: 17 Dec 2013

RedRoo Shocks are excited to be conducting this trial and appreciate Noske Logistics support.

HV1000, Cab and 4WD Shock Absorbers Date: 14 Nov 2013

Just has been the case with our HV2000 shocks there has also been a high level of interest in our upcoming HV1000, Cab and 4WD shock absorbers.  Initial test results have been extremely promising and we are still on track for release in mid 2014.

Using the same patented RedRoo technology our HV1000 looks similar to other shocks on the market, however its pressurised chamber provides an extra dampening capability, setting it apart from the rest.  With the similar characteristics as the HV2000 and at a lower price, it will be the perfect solution for light trucks, trailers and drivers on a budget.

The Red Roo Shock Absorber Has Arrived! Date: 24 Sep 2013

Following a licensing agreement between Roboshock International and Assemco Pty Ltd we are pleased to announce the arrival of REDROO SHOCKS.  

RedRoo Shocks is a newly-formed entity, responsible for the full manufacture and global distribution of the shock absorbers previously sold under the Roboshock name “Boundless Rider”. 

An improved product at a reduced price

The quality of our shock absorbers has been improved. An upgrade of the seal assembly and the addition of a 25mm microcracked hardened shaft have resulted in a much more robust shock. Best of all, due to an increase in manufacturing capabilities and higher sales forecast, our HV2000 shocks (pictured right) will retail for 30% less under the RedRoo name. Yes, you heard right, the product is not only improved, it’s significantly cheaper.

With the first set of RedRoo Shocks due to come off the production line in mid November 2013, orders are filling fast.

Brisbane Truck Show Date: 01 Sep 2013

Recently our Business Development Manager Mark Rigoni and Sales & Marketing Manager Luke Clarke ventured up to Brisbane for the 2013 Brisbane Truck Show.  Event organisers concluded that this year’s event was a huge success, with visitor numbers up across all days of the event, eclipsing the successful 2011 Show.

The event provided us with a great insight into what is happening in the industry and gave us a chance to network with our peers.  We were particularly impressed by the display put on by Kenworth Trucks, a long standing working partner of Assemco Pty Ltd (our parent company).

A highlight of the day was the inaugural People’s Choice Award for the Best Presented Truck of the Show, which was conducted through the Brisbane Truck Show Facebook page, going to Cat Trucks for its CAT CT630 LS.

We are certainly looking forward to setting up our first truck show display in Melbourne next year.
