A new six-page brochure from Dana Corp.’s Commercial Vehicle Systems group provides a component-by-component description of the features and benefits of Spicer Life Series heavy-duty driveshaft assemblies. The brochure and ordering information are available at http://www.roadranger.com/spicerlife/.
The brochure says Spicer Life Series driveshafts can save truck owners as much as $1,400 per truck due to reduced system weight, as well as parts reductions and lowered maintenance costs. Another section outlines the decreased operating costs, longer life, and heavy hauling performance benefits of the Spicer Life XL universal joints, which offer extended initial lubrications intervals for linehaul applications of up to three years or 350,000 miles.
The brochure also includes information on how the patented spring tabs on Spicer Life driveshafts reduce looseness and help decrease unwanted vibration; how the Glidecote slip splines and boots incorporating Hytrel increase balance, strength, durability and torsional stiffness to minimize vibrations; permanently lubricated slip members that provide superior protection against contaminants and eliminate the need for maintenance; how the increased driveshaft tube diameter, coupled with decreased wall thickness, improves strength and reduces weight; how the new Spicer XCTM center bearing reduces bracket complexity, improves driveshaft performance, and reduces downtime; Quick Disconnect end yokes that reduce deflection, improve strength, and simplify maintenance; and torque ratings, swing diameters, tube sizes, warranty information, weights, and more on heavy-duty Spicer Life Series and Spicer 10-Series driveshaft assemblies.
Spicer Life Series driveshafts were designed to meet the increasingly demanding challenges of high-torque, high-horsepower vehicles and are compatible with electronically controlled engines and lower axle ratios.
