Dana Corp's Commercial Vehicle Systems group has introduced the heavy-duty Dana Spicer LMS hub system to complement its new 20,000- and 22,000-lb GAWR steer axle series. The new wheel end system features:
Precision machined ConMet aluminum or iron hubs.
Pre-adjusted wheel bearings reduce installation time and maintenance.
Precision machined bearing spacers for longer seal and brake life.
High-performance Outrunner oil bath seals provide increased uptime.
Patented Dana Spicer LMS hubcap and vent system lower life cycle costs.
Improved spindle nut system ensures proper exacting torque for improved performance and safety.
The hub system design controls bearing adjustment and eliminates installation variables that can lead to end play, premature wheel seal failure, brake lining replacement, and wheel bearing failure.
LMS hub systems are approved for both on- and off-highway applications and come in a range of axle ratings up to 22,800 pounds GAWR for steer axles. Furthermore, the LMS is compatible with both drum brake configurations and air disc brake technologies. Warranty coverage is for up to three years or 350,000 miles on steer axles, with Dana-approved lube.
