Many of the most popular off-highway equipment brands use AxleTech parts, including Terex, Grove, Hyster, Link-Belt, JLG, Volvo, Doosan, Daewoo, AGCO and Kalmar, among others. AxleTech, also known as Meritor and Rockwell, is a global company, and Intella is proud to be a distributor of high-quality aftermarket parts from the company.
OSHA requires off-highway equipment operators to conduct daily key-off and key-on inspections before beginning a shift. However, inspections of the steer axle are usually only required except as part of a planned maintenance program that allows time for lifting the truck onto wooden blocks. As part of this more thorough inspection, look for the following:
- Worn link pins or rod ends
- Broken or unusable zerks
- Material or debris wrapped around the axle
- Damaged axle seals
- Leaks in cylinder or hose
- Growling bearings or excessive play in tires
- Missing or broken axle trunnion bolts
If you or your operators notice unusual sounds during the key-on inspection, particularly when checking the steering, stop the engine immediately and have a mechanic investigate the axle. If you don't know the numbers for your Meritor/AxleTech parts, we can help you find the correct part using the AxleTech or Rockwell serial number.
Regular maintenance and proper inspection procedures prevent damage to your equipment and reduce expensive downtime. Get the AxleTech off-highway parts you need at affordable prices without sacrificing quality or wasting time when you purchase them from Intella.
