The AxleTech PRC3806 series rigid planetary axle is engineered to meet the increasing powerful demands of the heavy-duty lift truck market. With an axle capacity range up to 160,000 lb (72,600 kg) for lift truck applications, this axle covers a broad range of lift truck, RO-RO lift truck and log handler applications.

The PRC3806 axle series offers a wide selection of overall axle ratios, load capacities, vehicle installation mountings for performance characteristics tailored to your needs. Wheel mounted 17 in (432 mm) W4R wet disc brakes with sealed environment protect against contaminants for optimal brake performance in severe conditions.

Engineered for compatibility with demanding traction conditions, The PRC3806 meets the trend of increased driveline torque, and loading conditions with its optimized ductile iron housing design that provides an extra ruggedness for prolonged use as well as life. The PRC3806 design helps reduce OEM/end-user maintenance costs through a series of standard and optional features. A standard unitized input pinion seal reduces the likelihood of carrier oil leaks and a carrier thrust screw provides for ring gear support in high torque applications.

Options also include multiple axle mounting centers to provide flexibility to match OEM vehicle installations. Mechanical wear indicators are available to permit visual inspection without axle/wet disc brake disassembly. Optional wet brake jack-screws and temperature sensors provide the OEM the ability to customize their wet brake vehicle systems. Optional input park brake feature allows the OEM the ability to select to park on the input of the planetary axle.

Also available are various input yokes/flanges including the "XS-150" and "XS-180" cross-teeth style flange. AxleTech rigid planetary axles are tough, dependable, and thoroughly proven under the most severe conditions.
