Dana Planetary Axles

I found these axles for a good price but can't decide if I want these or rockwells. The gear ratio is roughly 1:12 with a track width of 65 inches. They weigh 800lbs so they are not tooooo heavy.

Any one use this type of axle (besides HappyThrottle and Randy)?

They look like something out of a Gradall or a Skytrak. If it's a good price I would do it. They already have some of the stuff for Full hydro to.

I am guessing by "happy throttle" you meant me. If you can make these work in your aplication they are far better in almost every way. Gearing is usually in the 20:1 range, shaft diameter is not as important because the planetary takes most of the load (but they are still big), steering is a huge advantange usually in the 60 degree range.

Also those look like they are out of a tug so they are a smaller version and should not be much more weight than a rockwell with more ground clearance.

i think it would be cool to build something that doesnt use run of the mill parts (60's rockwells etc.) but on the flip side of that if you manage to break a part on those axles, on the south side of bum fuckt egypt are you gonna be able to get parts for them?

I called Dana and they sent me a pdf of the 278. I have no way to post it on here. If you want to see it I could send it to you.

The look bad ass...I say go for it.

I would try to buy up another set to have spares when/if you do break something, that way you already have it and you aren't stuck somewhere (like someone else said) waiting to get parts that may take weeks to get.

Those look pretty cool!!!

I'm curious about a few things:

What exactly are "wet disc" brakes? I assume they are located inside the housing somewhere that lubrication is present - where exactly are they and how do they operate?

Where'd you find 'em?

What is the approx. cost for the two steering axles pictured?

What is the parts availability/support? Where and cost?

Hub diameter and lug pattern?






They would definately bring the cool/unique factor to any rig runnin' them.

Neat idea, and not to rain on your paraide, but; wouldn't 12:1 be a huge pain in the balls if you ever wanted to drive to/from a trail? Top speed would be what? 15-25MPH??

ok have seen those axles in underground service trucks. They put them under fj-45 pickups that are diesel. Super expensive to fix!!! The wet brakes are good and hold great. I have seen these axles break with just a 4cyl diesel pushing them. Alot of places and mines are taking them out and replacing them with something cheaper and more parts options. If ya can get them cheap go for it but it better be cheap cheap cause if ya need parts they are going to get ya. But if ya need parts i can lead ya in some directions. Garrett
