Energy-Efficient Design

Mack-patented Durapoid bevel gear design eliminates localized stress and tooth-end loading to improve fuel economy, maximize energy efficiency and extend gear life.

A key component to Mack axle carriers, Mack power dividers deliver inter-wheel and inter-axle power divider capabilities to keep you moving, even when your wheels aren't.

Inter-Axle Power Divider

Mack’s inter-axle power divider automatically diverts up to 75% of torque from the axle with no traction to the axle that has traction. No driver intervention is needed.

  • Transfers torque between the outer cam and inner cams using two rows of wedges
  • Outer cam drives the front axle while the inner cam drives power to the rear axle
  • Features no gears to reduce friction loss during torque transmittal
  • Maximizes pulling power and efficiency while reducing unnecessary tire wear

Inter-Wheel Power Divider

Mack’s proprietary inter-wheel power divider works in the same manner as the inter-axle power divider, distributing up to 75% of torque from wheel to wheel to preserve traction.

  • Optional feature that transfers torque without any driver intervention required
  • Can be used with the inter-axle power divider for improved traction in extremely slippery conditions
  • Works at high speeds
