The AxleTech PRC7545 series planetary rigid axle is engineered to meet the increasing powerful demands of the heavy-duty lift truck market. With a capacity of up to 245,000 lb (111,100 kg), this axle covers a broad range of lift truck applications including large container handlers and log stackers.

The PRC7545 axles offer a wide selection of overall axle ratios, load capacities, multiple tracks, brakes, and vehicle installation mountings for performance characteristics tailored to your needs.

Engineered for compatibility with demanding traction conditions, the PRC7545 meets the trend of increased driveline torque, tire sizes and loading requirements that provide an extra ruggedness for prolonged use as well as life. The PRC7545 design helps reduce OEM/end-user maintenance costs. A standard unitized input pinion seal minimizes potential for oil leaks and improved axle sealing protection. Supplemental housing magnets are standard to help reduce metallic contamination between scheduled lubricant change intervals. New high capacity removable magnetic plugs implemented into PRC7545 standard axle enhance maximum life with minimum maintenance.

Wheel mounted 17 in (432 mm) W4R wet disc brakes with sealed environment protect against contaminants for optimal brake performance in severe conditions; optional allows use of auxiliary cooling for severe duty cycles. Optional carrier input mounted park brakes provide the OEM with the ability to select this parking feature directly mounted on the PRC7545 planetary axle. Also available are various input yokes/flange options including the KV180 cross-teeth style flange.
