Axle systems from BPW

Special profile axle beams for the highest loadings, KTLZn (cataphoretic zinc coating), trailing and positive steering axles, low-maintenance suspension and brakes designed precisely for the vehicle, together with the highest possible levels of comfort and manoeuvrability for the driver. Whether harvesting machinery, soil tillage machinery, tippers, sprayers, balers or bowsers - BPW's agricultural programme offers not only experience from the heavy-duty range but also specific agricultural expertise with a top quality and long service life.

That means both the user and the vehicle manufacturer stand to gain - BPW supplies ready-to-fit system solutions, exactly matched to the body, enabling manufacturers to concentrate on their core business and the farmers to concentrate on a bumper harvest.

Quality needs a strong partner

Professional operators demand the highest performance from their machinery.  It is operated round the clock, not just during the ploughing and harvesting periods. With very high payloads and subject to extreme ground conditions in some cases, the next job is never far away. Under these circumstances, every single component of the running gear must be designed to meet continuously increasing requirements in order to guarantee high protection against failure

Axles

With a variety of the permissible axle loads (up to 8.5 t) and different wheel brakes designed for individual applications, BPW offers an extensive range of braked axles with solid axle beams. They are provided as standard with camber to reduce tyre wear. Like all BPW running gear products, solid axles are also provided with cataphoretic dip-coating with zinc-phosphating.

Braked Agricultural Axles - Features and Benefits:

  • Durable components due to special BPW geometry and material quality
  • KTLZn-coating for optimum corrosion protection
  • Axle with camber for reduced tyre wear
  • Load-adapted square axle beam of 50 - 100 mm
  • Brakes of 300 x 60 up to 400 x 80 mm, depending on application
  • Axles equipped with slack adjuster (GSK) for easier brake adjustment (option)
  • High-quality DIN-ISO roller bearings, available worldwide

With a large number of permissible axle loads and various brakes, BPW axles with axle beams covers all possible applications.

BPW trailed axles are manufactured based on the same quality standards as braked BPW axles. They are provided with camber to reduce tyre wear and provided with cataphoretic dip-coating with zinc-phosphating (KTLZn) as well. Additionally, BPW trailed axles with hollow axle beam are provided with a toe-in to improve their driving behaviour even further.
