Axle for Kenworth T880

Marmon-Herrington MT-22 Double Reduction, Planetary Axle (PRNewsfoto/Marmon-Herrington)

Marmon Herrington will supply the MT-22 front drive steer axle for Kenworth’s T880 AWD 6×6 and 8×8 configurations, offering a Gross Axle Weight Rating of 22,000 pounds.

The axle’s double-reduction, planetary design distributes input torque across the entire axle, unlike a single-reduction axle, the company says. The torque splitting allows for a smaller ring and pinion, reducing the size of the center section and improving durability.
