Meritor Launches New Heavy-Haul Axles
Meritor Inc. announced the introduction of the P600 Series planetary axles, including the P610 and P614. These two planetary axles are engineered for heavy-haul, oil field, logging and mining applications globally and are ready for production.
The P610 and P614 axles, available in tandem and tridem configurations, use common components from other Meritor axles, allowing for reduced lead times and quicker customer deliveries, the company said.
“Most of the components used in the P610 and P614 heavy-haul axles are the same as those used on high-volume Meritor axles, which have been reliable in demanding applications,” said Ben Reineck, director of Specialty for Meritor. “We’re confident that these heavy-haul planetary axles are a great fit for our specialty customers.”
Tandem axle maximum gross axle weight rating is 84,000 lb. and tridem axle maximum gross axle weight rating is 126,000 lb. A driver-controlled differential lock or inter-axle differential for all carriers and inter-axles is included to maximize traction. The fabricated steel housings with brackets accept most heavy-duty suspensions, Meritor said, and axle ratios range from 3.46:1 to 24.8:1.
