Extremely rugged design and reliable even in the most difficult terrain. Our swivel axles are designed for axle loads between 9,000 and 13,000 kgs.
SAF swivel axles are specially designed for off-road use under extremely difficult conditions. With the appropriate chassis design, they permit optimum axle load compensation between individual axles, thanks to their oscillating movements.
Typical for SAF swivel axles is the particularly low-friction, low-wear design of the self-aligning bearing: In general, two swivel axles are connected with a center tube which, in turn, has a self-aligning bearing in its center. This design principle of the double self-aligning bearing enables a secure absorption and compensation of both longitudinal and traverse movements of the vehicle which occur in rough terrain.
