Iron hubs weigh less than aluminum ones
Nov 1, 2002 12:00 PM
Gunite Corp has unveiled a new generation of its Ductilite ductile iron hub that actually weighs less than an aluminum hub designed for comparable axle rating. This patented casting configuration offers the reliability and durability of a cast-iron hub without adding any weight over a comparable aluminum hub.
Ductilite ductile iron hubs are available for all popular front axle applications up to 14,600-lb GAWR. These hubs are compatible with all vehicles in a fleet regardless of axle ratings, and they are compatible with all existing wheels and drums. A drive-axle version of this hub is being developed and will be introduced later.
