Radial piston hydraulic motors and rotators

On-demand wheel drives

For trailers and pull behind equipment

How is it possible for a light vehicle to haul a heavy trailer without a loss of overall performance?

The answer is the Black Bruin On-Demand Wheel Drives. A lighter vehicle can act as a tractor if the trailer wheels also are driven.

A non-driven wheel resists movement. But Black Bruin puts its high torque just where it is most needed – under the cargo! More pulling power is generated when needed or motors can be used continuously as a primary transmission.
