Extreme Weather Conditions Can Affect CV Axle Performance

Extreme Weather Conditions Can Affect CV Axle Performance

Sponsored by TrakMotive

Extreme weather and rugged conditions can be tough on today’s vehicles. This is especially true with work vehicles that are required to operate in even the worst environmental conditions. OE style CV axles function well in normal conditions but can be subject to premature failure due to extreme cold, heat and rugged conditions. 

TrakMotive A addresses this problem with their New HD Xtreme® C.V. Axles, that have been speci­fically designed to handle the most extreme environments.

All HD Xtreme CV Axles incorporate special high strength 8-ball fixed CV outer joints engineered to reduce friction and wear characteristics for greater longevity and cooler operation which extends grease life.

This provides a perfect solution for fleets and vehicles that must operate regardless of weather conditions.

Premium thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) boots provide added protection against road debris and ice along with high strength stainless clamps for added corrosion resistance when exposed to road salt.

These premium TPE boots are designed to withstand exposure to extreme cold from –58°F or 50°C to 478°F or 248°C.

Additional Benefits Include:

·      Stainless steel stepless clamps provide improved clamping force on the TPE boot to create a tighter, more reliable 360° optimum seal even in the most extreme temperatures.

Specially formulated 7023B grease is designed to resist loss of lubricity and maintain OE lubricant performance in even the most severe temperatures ranging from -40°F/C to +280°F/140 °C.

So, if you’re looking for a long-lasting dependable performance in even the Most extreme conditions, we have a solution.

Check out our Tec Minute Video on HD Xtreme® CV Axles:

All TrakMotive® New Premium C.V. Axles are manufactured and engineered to the highest quality standards in the industry, ensuring they meet or exceed OEM manufacturer’s specifications in fit, form, and function.

This includes all new OE quality materials such as neoprene or thermoplastic elastomer (TPE)* dust boots and stainless-steel clamps to provide better resistance to deformation, stretching, and corrosion. Additionally, all the necessary hardware needed for the job is included to help eliminate the possibility of running back to the parts store a second time.
