Meritor in Troy has launched its ProTec series 3000 front and rear all-wheel drive beam axles, Meritor Defense’s first purpose-built solutions for Class 5 vehicle applications such as tactical, fire, rescue, and utility vehicles.

“The new ProTec series 3000 will offer the same level of confidence, performance, and reliability our nation’s warfighters have grown to appreciate while in-theatre to those utilizing a commercial chassis in vocational vehicles,” says Dave Damian, director of defense for Meritor. “This solution addresses market demand for increased payload capacity, mobility, and stability among Class 5 applications and expands Meritor’s reach within these segments.”

The series features a gross axle weight rating of up to 12,000 pounds, a 4,500-pound increase over factory OEM-provided equipment. It is also pre-drilled and plumbed to accommodate a central tire inflation system.

Both front and rear axles are equipped with Meritor’s bevel gear hub wheel-ends, currently in operation on the U.S. military’s joint light tactical vehicle program vehicles. They also feature standard driver-controlled differential lock carriers to enhance mobility.

All Meritor Defense axles are backed by DriveForce, Meritor’s global service and support network.

Meritor is a global supplier of drivetrain, mobility, braking, and aftermarket solutions for commercial vehicle and industrial markets. It serves commercial truck, trailer, off-highway, defense, specialty, and aftermarket customers and has been in business for 110 years.
