| May 01, 2012

Gear Guide — Spring Truck Show Roundup

Meritor Inc.’s FUELite tandem axle is first member of its SoloDrive Series axles which features 6-by-2 tandem rear axles. Based on the Meritor 160 series drive axle, the FUELite tandem axle is designed to deliver nearly 400 pounds in weight savings and about a 2-percent increase in fuel efficiency when compared to a traditional 6-by-4 configuration.

Features and benefits include Meritor’s 160 DualTrac housing that allows the option of running wide-based single tires or duals for enhanced efficiency and improved residual value, a 2.50 to 4.10 ratio range available to match the application and a 12.7-millimeter wall housing compatible with all current 40,000-pound tandem air suspensions.
