Title
(EN) AXLE ATTACHMENT ARRANGEMENT FOR TAG AXLE
(FR) ENSEMBLE DE FIXATION D'ESSIEU DESTINE A UN ESSIEU TRAINE
Abstract
(EN)
A swing-frame auxiliary axle system (200) for a work vehicle (100) and method of assembling is disclosed that includes a pivot frame having a pair of spaced pivot arms (120) having a pivot end (134) and a free end (132) and being connected to carry a common transverse torque tube (130) close to the free end (132) thereof, each arm (120) being pivotally mounted to a vehicle chassis rail (114) near the pivot end (134), the torque tube (130) including a pair of tag axles attached thereto and wheels (116). The system is provided with a pivot frame alignment system for intrinsically aligning the pivot spaced arms (120) and the torque tube (130) in proper transverse relation for ease in assembling or re-assembling and stability in operating.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système (200) d'essieu auxiliaire à structure basculante destiné à un véhicule de travail (100), ainsi qu'un procédé d'assemblage, comprenant une structure pivotante ayant une paire de bras (120) de pivotement espacés pourvus d'une extrémité pivotante (134) et d'une extrémité libre (132) et reliés de manière à porter un tube de torsion (130) commun à proximité de ladite extrémité libre (132), chaque bras (120) étant monté pivotant sur un longeron (114) du châssis du véhicule près de l'extrémité pivotante (134), le tube de torsion (130) comportant une paire d'essieux traînés fixés à ce dernier, ainsi que des roues (116). Le système est doté d'un système d'alignement de la structure pivotante servant à aligner de manière intrinsèque les bras pivotants (120) espacés et le tube de torsion (130), de façon véritablement transversale, et ce afin de simplifier l'assemblage ou le réassemblage et pour la stabilité lors du fonctionnement.
