The differential makes the torque equal at both drive
When one wheel turns slower than the other, as in a
turn, the differential permits the wheel to stop or turn slower
in relation to the outside wheel.
When the machine moves
straight ahead with equal traction under each drive wheel equal
torque on each axle stops pinions so they will not return on the
This gives the same action as if both drive wheels were
locked on the same driving axle when unequal loads are put on the
drive wheel, as in a turn, forces that are not equal are put on
opposite sides of the differential and cause the pinions to turn.
As the pinions turn, the inside wheel turns slow or stops the
rotation of the outside wheel increases.
This action causes the
machine to be driven with full power in a turn.
The final drive has hydraulic disc brakes.
disc brakes requires no adjustment.
The lining maintains light
contact with the discs to keep them clean.
The final drive is operated by a planetary gear system.
The axles are connected to the differential at one end and to sun
gear at the other end by splines.
The ring gear of the planetary
system is connected to the hub splines.
The hub is connected to
splindle by splines.
The splines are fastened to axle housing.
The brake system is an air over hydraulic type. An
engine driven compressor supplies compressed air for the system.
The compressed air is stored in the air reservoir.
The output is
regulated by a governor between the compressor and the reservoir
at 85 to 100 psi.
The hydraulic system is a closed system with
contracted pressure relief.
The loader has a maximum speed of
22.6 mph (36.4 km/h).
The fuel tank capacity is 57.7 gallons
(218L) and the equipment will use approximately 48 - 60 gallons
(148L) diesel fuel with the engine operating at 2100 rpm, for a
period of 8 hours (steady cycling on the basic loader cycle).
Since the vehicle cannot travel at a speed greater than 25 mph,
insure that a slow moving emblem, NSN 9905-01-045-2201, is
mounted on the rear of the vehicle whenever the vehicle is driven
on public highways.
