Hub reduction axle

  • 15-Jun-2009 12:03 EDT

ArvinMeritor’s global hub reduction axle family of single and tandem rear axles provides operational flexibility for the heavy haul and construction, refuse, logging, concrete, and mining vocational markets. The axles offer up to 600 lb (272 kg) mass savings and a wide ratio range to meet most on- and off-highway applications as well as suspension adaptations and brake offerings. The fully dressed axle assembly features four-planet wheel-end hub-reduction gearing; the single axle is rated at 26,000-35,000 lb (11,790-15,880 kg), and the tandem is rated at 52,000-70,000 lb (23,590-31,750 kg) GAWR. Needle-bearing design throughout the interaxle differential provides spinout protection and eliminates the need for a lube pump. When combined with the MX-160 front-drive steer axle, the hub-reduction axle provides maximum mobility in any operating condition for an all-wheel-drive solution.
