The TDB254WR wide-wheel bevel gear drive from ABM Drives (Germany) incorporates special gearing to produce the industry’s tightest swing radius – just 7in. – for wide wheel capability with zero-offset drive. Designed for pallet trucks, the gear drive is available in gear ratios from 14:1 to 39:1.
The drive’s modular design enables OEMs to custom specify motor, steering, gear ratios, tiller mounting set-up and end shields – all from a single source, fully assembled and integrated. OEMs can choose between a range of high-efficiency, UL-approved AC induction motors up to 5.2hp for battery voltages of 24, 36, 48, 72, and 80V, various motor sizes and lengths, and a 10 in. diameter shroud or 12 in. optional wheel. Steering choices include direct drive tiller, chain-and-sprocket, or integrated by-wire, plus holding brake options.
