In response to customers’ needs and market demand, Alcoa Wheel Products developed a wheel for European construction vehicles with disc brakes. This new wheel is designed without ventilation holes to protect the drive/front axle disc brakes from sand and gravel.
Meanwhile this WorkHorse® wheel has found its way to various other applications, including trailers.
This special wheel design brings Alcoa customers true added value through the reduction of maintenance costs, increased brake life and improved performance.
Due to its stronger design, the fatigue life for these wheels has also been increased. Mounting characteristics for the WorkHorse® wheels are the same as for standard wheels.
WorkHorse® wheels are available in Brushed finish.
