Dana Spicer S140 axles are designed to serve a wide range of applications and feature a broad ratio coverage.

Kenworth T270 and T370 medium duty trucks are now standard with Dana Spicer S140 single-reduction, single-drive axles.

The Kenworth T270 features the Dana Spicer S17-140 rated at 16,000 lbs, while the Kenworth T370 is standard with the Dana Spicer S21-140 rated at 21,000 lbs.  

Dana Spicer S140 axles are designed to serve a wide range of applications and feature a broad ratio coverage, allowing maximum performance across a variety of vocations. The axles provide reliability and durability with higher horsepower and torque engines due to high-capacity gearing, the company says. Standard “R” series spindles are used for ease of fit up and commonality.

The S140 axle design features GenTech extra-quiet gearing to reduce noise levels by up to 12dB versus standard gear designs and provide a smoother vehicle ride. The Dana Spicer S140 axles also offer a weight savings of up to 85 lbs compared to the Dana P20060S axle.
