Dana’s smart axles help prevent accidents; enhanced Powerboost technology drives improved telehandler performance

Updated Apr 19, 2016

Dana - Spicer PowerBoost SystemIf your telehandler is about to tip over, chances are good the imbalance will be felt first in the axles, which is why Dana has come up with its Spicer Smart Suite package.

The technology, debuted during the Bauma trade show in Munich last week, provides an intelligent load monitoring system (ILMS) for telehandlers to help prevent tip overs, estimate static loads and supply calibration management with real-time operating metrics. With ILMS you get dynamic load monitoring in conditions such as cornering, lifting and shuttling.

The company has also enhanced its Spicer Powerboost hydraulic hybrid powertrain technology. Customized configurations of the new Powerboost powertrain can increase hydraulic power to the work circuits up to 20 percent and perform up to three times faster.

The end result for telehandler and off-highway equipment users is increased performance, productivity and fuel economy.
