Innovation is at the core of the Dana

Spicer DST40 Torsionally Tuned-40 Tandem.
The pairing of hypoid and spiral bevel
gearing decreases inter-axle driveline
angles, reducing driveline vibration. This
prevents drivetrain component damage
and extends U-joint and synchronizer life,
without compromising on gear and bearing
loads, for the best combination of gearing
strength, bearing system reliability, and
ratio flexibility.

In high torque, high horsepower engines

subjected to increased payload applications,
nothing compares to the Dana Spicer High
Performance-40 tandem axle design for
optimum performance. The thick wall,
square-edge, high strength axle housing is
designed for todays air-ride suspensions.

Drivers in high GCW linehaul applications

shouldnt have to worry about their axles.
The Dana Spicer Super 40 tandem axle
delivers the confidence they deserve.
An integrated ring gear and wheel differential
mounting system eliminates the bolted
joint, improving reliability in high torque,
high horsepower functions.

A popular range of standard axle ratios

ensures flawless performance, while
lowered vehicle vibration and improved
ride characteristics provide a more
comfortable operating experience for drivers.

Approved specifically for engines up to 650

horsepower and 2,050 lbs.ft. of torque, the
DSH40 High Performance-40 axle is more
than 400 pounds lighter than typical
18-inch ring gear tandems for high torque
applications. It also costs much less than
46,000-lb. tandems for premium, high
horsepower applications.

The D40-170 Super 40 offers the largest

wheel differential in its class, and its
patented on-demand lube pump protects
against spin-out without robbing valuable
horsepower. The robust bearing system
was designed specifically for high torque,
high horsepower applications.
In addition, an integral pinion cage and
carrier add strength and eliminate a leak
path, contributing to overall durability.
With ratio coverage from 3.07 to 7.17:1, the
D40-170 Super 40 axle provides maximum
performance across a variety of vocations.
