CLEVELAND, Ohio, — Truckers hauling loads in severe applications, such as logging and mining, can now get a wheel engineered with their tough job in mind.
The new Alcoa Severe Service wheel boasts a maximum load rating up to 8,000lb, exceeding standard hub piloted wheel load ratings by 700lb.
As well, it combines the gains on load rating with a lean weight. For instance, an Alcoa 22.5-inch forged aluminum Severe Service wheel weighs only 55lb, offering 31-lb in weight savings over a comparable steel wheel.
Specifications for the Alcoa Severe Service wheels include 10-hole hub piloted mounting with 285.75mm bolt circles. The wheels are available in two sizes: 22.5 inches by 8.25 inches (part number 885600); and 24.5 inches by 8.25 inches (part number 985600).
