FPW have been producing drive axles for since mid 1980s. The first axles were produced when our then sister company, Moss Gear South Wales, ceased production of the double reduction drive axle. Although the first axles were produced primarily for the milk float industry we have since gone on to develop many drive axles for a wide range of electrically, hydrostatically and diesel powered vehicles.
With variations which include transverse mounted single and double reduction axles which can be close coupled direct to the electric motor or hydraulic pump and more conventional prop shaft driven single and double reduction axles. More recently we have also developed drive units to be used with our new independent suspension axle range. All axles can be supplied with Disc or Drum brakes with wheel mounting details to suit and to cover a load rating from 500kg to 10000kg.
