Trailer Axles

Trailer Axles

Drum Brake Axles

TMC offer a full range of standard models to suit 17.5″, 19.5″ and 22.5″ wheels.

Whether supplied with 10 tonne or 12 tonne LM or XP airbag suspension or TMC’s well proven mechanical suspension, TMC’s trailer axles are equipped to return increased profit to the operator through the use of long life components and lower maintenance costs.

Disc Brake Axles

Developed here in Australia, TMC offer a cost effective disc braked axle package specifically for Australian conditions. 

The range includes either 370mm or 430mm diameter disc brake rotors, various hub options with “PRESET” or unitised bearings and either Wabco PAN-19 or PAN-22 disc brake callipers for improved brake performance and longer life.

Self Steer Axles

TMC self-steer axles improve manoeuvrability and provide smooth steering action. Available mounted to mechanical or airbag suspension, for multi-axle groups and low-ride configurations, the TMC self-steer axle comes as a “modular” package with TMC’s easy-to-fit “LMV Series” airbag suspension for lower tare weight and reduced life cycle cost.

The standard 10-tonne rated self-steer axle can be fitted with either drum or disc brakes and with optional hub wheel fixing types to suit 22.5”, 19.5” or 17.5” wheels. TMC standard self-steer axle incorporates an 11-degree steer angle and is equipped with pneumatic reverse locking device.

Special Purpose Axles

Originally developed in conjunction with Australia’s leading specialist low-loader manufacturer for rows-of-eight applications, the UB82 axle for 17.5″ wheels can now also be specified with the larger 335mm x 210mm brake (ADR38 rated capacity 11.5 tonne) and at any track length and, in that format, can be fitted to any of TMC’s extensive range of airbag or mechanical suspensions.

UB82 allows the operator to eliminate the human factor from seal maintenance and bearing adjustment, thus ensuring substantially lower life cycle costs.
