Heavy duty applications

Introduction Engineering Data Catalogs How to Order Contact Us

There are several applications in a heavy duty truck that use tapered roller bearings.

Wheel End- Tapered roller bearings are found in the wheel ends of your heavy duty truck.  They are used in steer axles, drive axles, pusher axles, tag axles and trailer wheel ends. Most of these designs use an inner and outer tapered bearing, but there are a few truck models that use a cartridge or hub unit design. 

Differential and Pinion Applications- Tapered roller bearings are also found in the differential and pinion application of your heavy duty truck.  The differential and pinion applications require the highest quality product available for severe duty.  Tyson only provides a case carburized product, including advanced geometries for these applications.
