Meritor introduced a new axle for the second consecutive week Monday with the introduction of its MOX-32 front-drive steer axle and its MON-32 non-drive steer axle.
Meritor says the MOX-32 is a 32,000-lb. rated planetary front-drive steer axle for heavy-duty and off-highway applications. The MON-32 is a 32,000-lb. rated non-drive steer axle for applications that haul demanding loads but do not require a driven front axle.
“Built in Laurinburg, N.C., these new axles are engineered for strength and durability to meet performance requirements and higher capacity demands in multiple applications,” says Steven Luepke, director, Off-Highway for Meritor. “The launch of the MOX-32 and the non-drive MON-32 axles continues Meritor’s commitment to innovation.”
The company says it engineered the MOX-32 to include proven Meritor carriers and a broad axle ratio range from 3.46 to 24.82 to fit the performance and productivity demands of different applications. Meritor says an optional driver-controlled differential lock (DCDL) enhances traction. The MOX-32 also can be configured to any track length for custom applications, and central tire inflation compatibility has been added based on customer need.
Meritor adds the MOX-32 includes Meritor P6 four-planet wheel-ends to offer a common, robust planetary gearing configuration fully validated for the toughest off-highway applications. Additionally, anti-lock braking system capability delivers improved stopping performance and safety.
