LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Dana has come out with a new tandem axle for 6×2 applications, which it says can reduce weight by up to 400 lbs.

The Spicer EconoTrek tandem axle can deliver fuel savings of up to 3% as a result of reduced weight, the company announced at the Mid-America Trucking Show.

The axle combines the Spicer S170 and S190 single-reduction drive axles with a new Spicer S20-045B tag axle.

The new axle is designed to work with the new Bendix eTrac system, which reduces wheel spin by transferring load to the driven axle in slippery conditions. Dana has created a fuel savings calculator for fleets at www.dana.com/commercialvehicle.

The new axle is due out this June.
