Dana Inc. will provide its Spicer D172 series heavy-duty tandem axles and its SPL 170 and 250 driveshafts to McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing, Inc. as standard equipment for its newly-redesigned Oshkosh S-Series front discharge mixer.
The D172 series tandem axle is rated for up to 50,000-lb. capacity applications and supported by a broad range of gear ratios, up to 6.14:1. Also standard is an integrated, driver-controlled wheel differential lock for maximum traction and spin-out protection.
With torque capacity of 17,000 Nm and 25,000 Nm respectively, the SPL 170 and 250 driveshafts are engineered to supply greater torque, durability, and savings for severe-duty and low-emission, high-efficiency trucks, the company says. The High-Power Density feature offers a smaller package for larger load-carrying capacity while providing the maximum reliability and efficiency needed in this demanding vocation, Dana says.
