TCAE-2-R PTO Hydraulics Application – Loadpro Australia - X60 Truck
We have recently supplied a TCAE-2-R couplings to Loadpro Australia for a PTO hydraulics application for the new X60 Off Highway Truck to be used in the mining industry.
Loadpro pride themselves on offering Efficient Transport Solutions and so by using the Thompson Couplings TCAE-2-R coupling means the X60 truck brings high efficiency and significant benefits to the mining and construction industries and is suitable for extended hauls and in applications other off highway trucks and articulated trucks are not suited for.
Further benefits are that No Laser Alignment is required for PTO applications.

Use: X60 Truck
Engine: Mercedes OM502 LA, 480 Kw @ 1800 RPM
Hydraulic Pump: K3VL
Maximum operating angle: 1 - 10 degrees total, without the requirement for laser alignment
Jake Schliebs – Loadpro Australia “The driveline and coupling is working better then expected, with the customer preparing to order further units for the plant. “Loadpro design and manufactures Off highway Trucks in Brisbane, Australia for the mining industry in the 65 Tonne weight class, Our X60 model required a high capacity hydraulic pump mounted directly from the engines harmonic balancer, After investigating various design solutions to couple the pump to the engine we became involved with Thompson Couplings, Their team were more than helpful during the design process and went above and beyond to cater to our requirements. Together we selected the Thompson Couplings TCAE-2-R for our application. We rubber mount our engine and fabricate our own chassis, so a coupling solution with high misalignment capabilities is the primary requirement, and the TCEA-2-R ticked all the boxes, with plenty of extra misalignment to spare. Since we selected the TCAE-2-R, we’ve been able to redesign the pump mount to a more cost effective method, since misalignment was no longer a problem for us”https://bit.ly/TCLYouTubeChannel
UPDATE: We have now supplied a further 10 couplings for another 10 mining trucks. A further 12 trucks will be fitted by the end of the year.
