How does Rubber Torsion System Work

Four natural rubber cords within the main structure of the axle beam surround the steel torsion bar. The wheel/hub spindle is attached to a lever, called the torsion arm assembly. This assembly comprises of the torsion arm, torsion bar and spindle. When load is applied to the trailer, the torsion arm assembly pivots around the torsion bar, causing a rolling or compressive resistance in the rubber cords inside the axle beam.

The rubber elastomer springs also help to smooth out the ride by absorbing at lot of the bumps, hence it is also a quieter ride.

Transtyle trailers Grease Exchange System

Grease Exchange System

All of our axles will come with Grease Exchange system , this system is the best to protect your wheel bearing from corrosion , wear, and water entry ,
With the Transtyle Grease Exchange System, grease is pumped through the hub via the grease zerk located at the end of the grease cap. Grease is pushed through the bearings and out of the exit hole at the rear of the spindle. Ensure that the seal plug has been removed to allow the grease for flow through.
Old grease that was inside the hub is forced out and exits through the rear hole of the spindle. Continue to pump new grease through the system until you are able to see a steady flow of new grease coming from the exit at the rear of the spindle – this ensures that all of the old grease has been flushed out. Once lubrication is complete, replace the seal plug.
