The AxleTech PRC1756 planetary rigid axle is engineered to meet the rugged demands placed on heavy-duty off-highway and specialty vehicles. Typical applications include heavy-duty lift trucks, dock spotters, loaders, mining and specialty vehicles. Axle capacities are vocation dependent range up to 110,000 lb (50,000 kg).
The PRC1756 planetary rigid axle offers a wide selection of gear ratios, load capacities and track widths. The PRC1756 is engineered for demanding traction conditions, and offers increased torque capacity versus previous models which increases life in rugged environments. DCDL (driver controlled differential lock) and NoSPIN® differentials are available as options for improved traction. A right hand hypoid carrier option is also available for optimized driveline angles.
The PRC1756 design helps reduce maintenance costs. Standard axle housing and wheel end magnets help reduce metallic contamination between scheduled lubrication intervals and eliminates initial drain requirement. A carrier input mounted caliper disc park brake option is available.
