9300 slides – for the heavier bear

The average grizzly bear weighs 272 kg - a perfect fit for the new 9300 range

Accuride wanted to strengthen this slide range for today’s tougher applications. That is why we have increased the material gauge for both the inner and outer members, increased the number of ball bearings and improved the ball retainer design.

Now we can announce that the new 9301 (DZ and DP) and 9308 slides can take loads up to 272 kg for a pair of side mounted slides. (See datasheets dated 08/17 for loads per slide length and loads for specific applications and mounting options.)

Redesigned for improved movement

Inching or ball migration is a condition where the ball retainers in the slides move at different speeds and distances, causing them to get out of sync with each other and with the slide members that they support. This is a common problem with all ball bearing slides.

To overcome this, Accuride has redesigned the 9300 bridge retainer to keep the spacer parallel and so reduce ball migration.

Bumpers have also been added to the spacer ends to improve the general movement and feel.


The boxes are clearly labelled with the new “-E” part number for easy identification:
