New Differential Axles

Posted on April 27, 2011

Comer has launched the new S-128 differential axles developed as the next generation of its S120 series axles. The new S-128 rigid and steering differential axles are designed for operating machines with a total weight up to 11 ton and 88.5 hp of installed traction power.

The axles can be used in a range of off-road applications including telehandlers, compact front loaders and backhoe loaders.

Comer designed the S-128 axles series with a higher power to weight ratio by increasing the torque and dynamic loading capability. This, Comer said was achieved through CAD design and careful materials selection during development process. A reduced installation envelope provides easier axle installation into a machine and increased efficiency was provided through energy savings and reduced emissions.

Comer said the axle series can also be adapted to vehicles such as sweepers and airport tractors. Additional applications parameters can be applied to included both dynamic and static braking provisions for increased safety, Comer said.
