On-demand wheel drives

For trailers and pull-behind equipment

  • More pulling power and mobility when needed

    Black Bruin puts its high torque just where it is needed – under the cargo! More pulling power is generated when needed and motors can also be used as a main transmission. Since heavy transmission axles are not needed, the trailer can maintain a high ground clearance. Due to optimum grip, there is also less ground damage.
  • Safe and reliable freewheeling

    When the wheel motors’ tractive effort is not required the motors are on freewheeling mode. Drive at high speed without specific hydraulics and get significant savings on the control system and fuel consumption!
  • Compact and well-sealed structure

    Being well-sealed, Black Bruin motors operate trouble free even in harsh and dirty conditions. Installation ready and lightweight wheel motor is designed to fit the most common rim diameters. You’ll get lighter overall construction and can transport greater quantitites of material. Pipes and flexible hoses are easy to install inside trailer frame where they are well protected.
  • Lower demand of maintenance

    Black Bruin all-in-one design: rotating hub, freewheel, certified brake. With fewer components, less malfunction.
