AL-KO introduces its HY4 hydraulic jack system for six further variants of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter

The AL-KO Vehicle Technology Group is making six further variants of the HY4 hydraulic jack system for the current Mercedes-Benz Sprinter base vehicles with front or rear-wheel drive. 

These include 2- and 3-axle AMC and SLC chassis, original MB frames and panel vans. The HY4 jack system is therefore available for the majority of motorhome types based on the current Mercedes-Benz Sprinter.

The fastening and assembly kits for the jack system have been newly developed for this purpose. They have been developed according to AL-KO development and test guidelines and put through their paces by Mercedes-Benz for component compatibility.

The AL-KO HY4 support system can automatically level a motorhome weighing up to six tonnes in about one minute – much easier than trying to do this manually using blocks/wedges. Another benefit of the HY4 jack system is that it also makes the vehicle more stable while living inside the vehicle. If required, the system can also be equipped with a weighing function.

AL-KO has also adapted the control to the guidelines for safety devices required by Mercedes-Benz for electronics. This particular effort resulted in the HY4 being the first hydraulic support system on the market to be provided with a compatibility certificate by Mercedes-Benz.
