Drivetrain Systems for Forestry Machines


Dana designs complete drivetrain systems that provide improved positioning, traction, braking, and reliability, as well as many other unique features specially engineered to maximize the productivity of forestry vehicles even in the most severe operating environments.

Spicer® axles for forestry equipment offer many differential designs that supply the excellent torque bias performance and required traction on varying ground conditions. For example, the Hydraloc™ torque-biasing differential provides optimum maneuverability and traction on the widely varying ground conditions found in logging environments.

We maximize flexibility for vehicle designers by offering transmission packages with integral, mid-mount, and remote configurations. Spicer transmissions also feature innovations such as advanced charge-pump systems, which provide increased oil flows for maximized performance in high-energy duty cycles as well as cold temperature environments.

Our customized drivetrain systems are specifically designed for high-volume forestry vehicles, including log skidders, fellers and bunchers, tree harvesters, and forwards.
