 Hub Reduction Axles


Based on the successful Meritor European planetary wheel-end reduction design that has provided fleets with outstanding performance in harsh applications for more than a decade, hub reduction axles offer a ratio range of 3.46 to 7.21 – allowing a match for virtually any individual application.

Our MT-610 series (cast housing) axles are equipped with standard driver controlled differential locks in the forward, rear gear, and interaxle differrential. To meet application requirements and customer preference, cam and pneumatic disc brake designs are offered. The wheel-end reduction is a proven high capacity planetary design.

For reduced parts complexity, lower installation costs, and maximum customer value, complete axle modules may be specified to include brakes, hubs, drums, and other associated wheel-end equipment. The axle housing accommodates all popular air and spring suspension brackets which also may be specified as part of the module.

The MT610 is available as a solo and as a tandem axle, from 13 to 32 tons Gross Axle Weight Rating.


 Features and Benefits


Four-planet hub-reduction gearing design provides higher-capacity ratings, and optimized driveline angles reduce harsh drivetrain vibrations, providing longer life.

Needle bearing design throughout interaxle differential provides spin-out protection and eliminates the need for a lube pump.

Driver-controlled differential locks (DCDL) are standard in both the forward and rear axles for increased traction when needed.

Wheel reduction is configured to suit your application requirements with three or four planetary gears.

Reduced maintenance activity and environmental impact can both be achieved by using Meritor-approved synthetic oils. Drain intervals can be conducted as infrequently as 400,000 miles or three years.

The MT-610 series are designed for high ground clearance for off-highway applications.
