Meritor serves the needs of military fleets with performance-proven rear
axle products. We have been the axle supplier of choice for more than 50 years
to the United States Army fleet of 2.5- and 5-ton vehicles. Our axle products
have accumulated billions of miles in serving our warfighters' needs, and are
built and validated to meet the extreme and demanding off-road requirements of
the military environment.
The extreme demands of the military duty cycle drove the custom design and
engineering of the Meritor MT-23-810 rear tandem axle. The combat-proven unique
bevel gear wheel-end reduction axles exceed the demanding requirements of the
Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) in all theaters of operation around
the world. With more than 60,000 FMTVs currently in the U.S. Army fleet, the
MT-23-810 rear tandem axles have accumulated more than 2 Billion miles of
service while demonstrating some of the highest reliability and readiness rates
in the entire tactical wheeled vehicle fleet.
They offer optimum maneuverability and excellent ground clearance with weight
ratings up to 23,000 lbs. MT-23-810 rear tandem axles are ideal for use in
heavily armored tactical and combat wheeled vehicles to improve payload
capability and mobility.
