Meritor’s P600 Series planetary axles, including the P610 and P614, are engineered for global heavy-haul, oil field, logging, and mining applications. Axles are available in tandem and tridem configurations and use common components to reduce lead times. Axles feature tandem maximum gross weight rating of 84,000 lb (38,100 kg) and tridem maximum gross axle weight rating at 126,000 lb (57,150 kg) for carrying higher-capacity loads; driver-controlled differential lock or inter-axle differential for all carriers and inter-axles to maximize traction; and an antilock braking system to improve safety and performance. A non-vented drum brake protects the system while operating in adverse conditions, and fabricated steel housings with brackets accept most heavy-duty suspensions. A broad overall axle ratio from 3.46:1 to 24.8:1 delivers favorable ratio selection for demanding applications.
