(1) Wheel planetades. (2) Carrier. (3) Wheel planetaries. (4) End reduction case.
The axle assembly receives power from the axle propel motor.
Axle components provide speed reductions and torque
increases, then transmit power to the rear wheels to drive the
End reduction case (4) receives power from the motor. The
case provides a speed reduction and torque increase, and
sends this power to carrier (2).
The carrier provides the second speed reduction and torque
increase. The carrier contains a no-spin differential and sends
power through the no-spin differential to the wheel planetaries
(1) and (3).
The wheels are attached to the end assemblies. The end
assemblies provide the final speed reduction and torque
increase, driving the wheels and propelling the machine.
The following sections provide additional information on the
end reduction case, carrier, no-spin differential, and wheel
