The AxleTech PRC265 series planetary rigid axle is engineered to meet the increasing demands of heavy duty off highway market vocations. Typical vocational usages include Rail Car Shuttle and Special Vehicle applications. This axle is widely accepted in these vocational segments due to its axle capacity of 21,000 lbs. (9,500 kgs). The PRC265 planetary rigid axle offers a wide selection of gear ratios, and its narrow track allows this axle to be tailored to your needs.

Engineered for compatibility with demanding traction conditions, the PRC265 meets the trend of increased driveline torque, tire sizes and loading requirements that provide an extra ruggedness for prolonged use, as well as life. A limited slip differential with a 2.0 bias ratio, as well as NoSPIN®, are available as options for improved traction in certain vocational markets.

The PRC265 design helps reduce the OEM/end-user maintenance costs. A standard carrier unitized seal reduces the likelihood of oil leaks. Extra axle housing magnets are available, as an option to help reduce metallic contamination between scheduled lubricant change intervals. Brake options include air or hydraulic brakes. Carrier input pinion mounted park brake options are also available.

AxleTech planetary rigid axles are tough, dependable, and thoroughly proven under the most severe conditions.
