HANNOVER, Germany - Meritor, Inc. (NYSE: MTOR) today introduced its redesigned MT-32-610 hub-reduction tandem for the European commercial vehicle market at the IAA Hannover Commercial Vehicle Show.

The new tandem is lightweight, yet durable, and is intended for rugged, on- and off-highway use, including long haul, construction and logging. The MT-32-610 features specific ground clearance and a Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) of 32 tons for vehicles with a Gross Combination Weight (GCW) of up to 100 tons. The rear of this tandem is also available as a solo axle (MS-16-610) for single-drive axle applications.

"Our on- and off-highway customers have been asking us for robust hub-reduction drive axles. These models embody the durability, performance and drivability for which Meritor products are recognized," said Marco Meliga, senior director, Sales & Marketing, Europe, Meritor. "The new MT-32-610 hub-reduction tandem and the MS-16-610 solo axles solidify our on- and off-highway drive axle offerings in the European market."

Meritor's new hub-reduction drive axles are available in 10 carrier ratios from 1.04 to 2.08. In addition, they can be specified in two planetary hub reduction ratios: 3.46 and 3.33.
