End Reduction Case
End Reduction Case.
(1) Case. (2) Input gear. (3) Cover. (4) Output gear.
The end reduction case provides a mechanical connection
between the axle propel motor and the carrier. The case also
provides a gear reduction, so the output rpm is less than the
input rpm from the motor.
The motor is mounted to cover (3). The splined output shaft of
the motor meshes with the internal splines of input gear (2).
The teeth of the input gear mesh with the teeth of output gear
(4). Case (1) is mounted directly to the carrier. Output gear
(4) has internal splines which provide the connection to the
carrier pinion shaft.
When the motor is operating, input gear (2) transfers power to
output gear (4). The output gear is larger than the input gear,
providing a reduction in output rpm to the carrier.
