As the Authorised Australian Distributor and Service Centre for Dana Spicer Drivetrain Systems, Drivetrain offers new component sales, through life support, Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (MRO) as well as spare parts for Spicer axles, driveshafts, and transmissions. Spicer Drivetrain Systems provide improved positioning, traction, braking, and reliability, as well as many other unique features specially engineered to maximise the productivity and safety of Australian mining vehicles such as shuttles, mine trucks, load-haul-dumps (LHDs), personnel carriers and site utility vehicles, even in extremely harsh environments.
Drivetrain maximises flexibility for Australian vehicle designers by offering Spicer transmission packages with integral, mid-mount, and remote configurations. Spicer transmissions also feature innovations such as advanced charge pump systems, which provide increased oil flows to maximise performance in high-energy duty cycles as well as cold temperature environments.
Simple and reliable liquid-cooled braking systems increase stopping power and decrease brake temperatures by distributing the braking effort over a high percentage of the axle surface envelope. In fact, the Spicer Posi-Stop™ fail-safe service brakes predominantly used in ramp mining vehicles are world-renowned for delivering high-integrity, high-reliability performance through spring-applied hydraulic-release (SAHR) actuation.
The Spicer transmission range offers a variety of options to provide vehicle designers with complete flexibility. Converter and transmission packages are available with integral, mid-mount, and remote configurations. Spicer transmissions deliver smooth shift characteristics, driver comfort, and enhanced vehicle performance. They also feature advanced charge pump systems, providing increased flows to maximise performance in high-energy duty cycles, as well as cold temperature environments. A remote-mounted transmission is available for the underground mining market to allow for installation flexibility.
Spicer axles offer a range of differential designs that supply excellent torque-bias performance and required traction for varying ground conditions. One example is the Hydroloc torquebiasing differential, which provides optimum maneuverability and traction on widely varying ground conditions found at mining sites.
Spicer driveshafts offer design flexibility and the durability to work reliably on varied and uneven terrains found at mining sites. More than a century of quality and innovation is reflected in every Spicer driveshaft, ranging from 400 to 15,000,000 Nm.
