Due to the design and constant failure of the 1, 2, 3 Ton cannon box wheel on a very regular basis, High power innovations investigated the causes of the failure and found the following:
- Sealing arrangement(non existent)
- Pipe that keeps the bearing inline bends, thus all alignment goes astray.
C) The clamping arrangement causes misalignment.
THE SOLUTION TO THIS IS THE QUATRO:
2.The axle diameter increased from 50mm to 75mm, this now will increase the load/impact resistant.
4. With all these added benefits HPI has made wheel maintenance free with sealed bearing boxes and no grease is required.
5. This unit fits to existing cars with no alterations, free height, mounting centers etc.
6. The store stock will drop in components instead of having rubbers, clamps and cannon box wheels. The quarto has one complete unit.
GENERAL FACTS :
With load capacity on 2 bearings per 2 wheels as per the Cannonbox wheels est. work life ± 3 months.
Quatro with 4 bearings to 5 TON per 2 wheels.
This improves safety, durability and cost saving, est. work life ± 18 -24 months.
The Quatro is a patented product of High Power innovations
Patent no : 2002 / 0961
THE QUATRO HAS PROVEN ITSELF WITH TIME:
Since the introduction of the Quatro wheels we have seen this product out perform any other product on the market. In the years that have gone past we have had Quatro’s being used for more than 6 years without it failing and only the wheel casting that were worn and needed replacement. All axle boxes still turning & moving freely.
In January 2010 we had 19 Quatro’s come in for repair on job number , HPI- 5578. All these quarto were from the 2005 December – 2006 March . All boxes were still turning , only the wheel were worn. We replaced the bearing , seals & wheel castings and they were ready to be returned for another few years to come.
