Ductile hub means less weight, more muscle
Aug 1, 2004 12:00 PM
Webb Wheel Products has introduced a new lightweight ductile hub for TP trailer axles. Significant design improvements have been incorporated into this new product to reduce weight while improving fatigue strength. Laboratory testing has shown this hub will save fleets approximately 72 pounds per trailer over standard ductile hubs.
The lightweight TP 2243 is interchangeable with Webb's current ductile and aluminum hubs for this trailer application. Additional applications are being designed and tested and will be announced when available.
