Tico showcases Meritor axle at Truck World

TORONTO, Ont. — Last week at Truck World, Tico of Canada showcased its Meritor MOR-32 planetary single drive rear axle, now available on its port and terminal tractors.

The company claims it’s the first OEM to offer the MOR-32 which it says offers the widest range of rations for fuel-efficiency and performance.

The terminal tractor belongs to B.C. Ferry Services and was displayed at Truck World. The axle is available immediately on Tico Pro Spotter tractors, the company announced.

“ArvinMeritor provides an outstanding combination of product quality and superb customer support,” said Aidan S. Bolger, president and CEO of Tico of Canada. “Our customers and aftermarket affiliates across Canada are confident knowing that ArvinMeritor has the superior network and ability to support customers with innovative solutions that range from technical specifications all the way through to parts and service.”

“This new axle takes durability and cost-effectiveness up a notch. It delivers the quality and reliability that Tico of Canada customers expect from a Pro Spotter tractor,” added Mark Schneider, business unit director for Off-Highway, ArvinMeritor. “The Meritor MOR-32 axle reflects our commitment to increasing asset utilization and reducing maintenance costs in demanding port and terminal environments.”

The MOR-32 is a 32-tonne rated planetary rear drive axle built for heavy loads. The fabricated steel housing allows the axle selection and length to be customized. It offers axle ratios from 8.5 to 24.8, allowing for improved fuel efficiency and performance, the company announced. ArvinMeritor’s Schneider said the MOR-32 can haul up to 20,000 lbs more payload than competitive offerings.
