Heavy-duty axles

  • 06-Jul-2010 12:00 EDT

A rear drive axle from ArvinMeritor was designed specifically for terminal tractor applications. With a rating up to 32,000 kg (70,550 lb) gross axle weight and 130,000 kg (286,600 lb) gross combined weight, the axle offers a fabricated steel plate housing for section and length customization, depending on capacity and track requirements. The axles feature performance and durability via heavy-duty carriers and planetary wheel ends that result in axle ratios from 8.5 to 24.8 for optimum ratio selection. Accurate gearing reduces ride noise and increases operator comfort. Fabricated axle housings improve options in size and performance without the additional efforts of retooling for every application. The company can configure axles and wheel ends to meet a range of ratios and capacities suitable for various applications.
