kscarbel2 Posted July 21, 2016 Share Posted July 21, 2016 SAF-Holland Press Release / January 27, 2016 Luxembourg-based SAF-Holland has introduced a hydraulic-driven trailer axle. The new "SAF TRAK" drive axle supports your tractor unit during inclines and on difficult terrain, using a hydraulically driven motor. SAF Trak provides the construction and refuse industries with an alternative to often-costly multi-drive trucks. “The integrated additional drive axle takes the required performance precisely to where it is needed – right to the trailer. Here, the drive axle carries the full axle load and is able to transmit all of the drive torque,” the company says. The hydraulic drive motor was developed by French company Poclain. The driver can activate the auxiliary drive axle from the cab at the push of a button. The system then automatically recognizes the direction of travel and turns on the axle’s drive motor if speed is reduced due to a lack of traction. The driven axle will switch to stand-by mode if a pre-defined speed is exceeded or the brakes are applied. The SAF-Holland Trak axle is available for retrofit onto existing trailers. . 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
