The Drive-Line System

driveline-system2
From the tractor unit a through drive rear axle extends the drive line with a permanently engaged constant velocity drive shaft system to the rear trailer bogie. The system allows for vertical and transverse oscillation between tractor and trailer. The rear bogie is coupled through a self and regenerative-steering arrangement which maintains the constant velocity drive-shaft geometry and turns the trailer wheels to track with those of the tractor unit. The system has been extensively proven on operational service with the United Kingdom Armed Forces in the Gulf, Bosnia and Kosovo and Afghanistan in addition to its commercial applications in the construction, agriculture, forestry and mining industries.
