The AxleTech PRLC1794 planetary rigid axle is engineered to meet the increasing powerful demands of the heavy-duty lift truck market. With an axle capacity range up to 130,000 lb (59,000 kg) for lift truck applications, this axle covers a broad range of lift truck and empty container applications.

The PRLC1794 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 PRLC1794 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 PRLC1794 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 carrier thrust screw 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 axle input of the planetary axle. DCDL (driver controlled differential lock) and  NoSPIN® differentials are available for improved traction vocation requirements.
