Meritor’s P600 planetary axles are now available with optional 5-planet wheel-ends and can be configured for use with central tire inflation systems.
The optional 5-planet wheel-ends allow a 20% higher gross combined axle weight rating over the 4-planet version and feature integrated cooling technology to reduce axle operating temperatures. With CTIS configuration, drivers can maintain and adjust tire pressure for enhanced performance in varying conditions.
“Heavy-haul customers are embracing the P600 series axles for outstanding performance, capabilities and best-in-class features,” said Steven Luepke, director, off-highway for Meritor. “Five-planet wheel-ends and CTIS compatibility reinforce Meritor’s continued development of solutions for heavy-haul, oilfield, logging and mining applications.”
The P600 Series planetary axle was one of Heavy Duty Trucking magazine’s Top 20 Products for 2015.
