Powerful Hägglunds Torque Arm Drive System (TADS) shrinks installation costs, saves floor space

Completely self-contained, compact design, with high reliability and long service life, the new TADS

Completely self-contained, compact design, with high reliability and long service life, the new TADS design makes it an attractive, cost-effective alternative to electromechanical systems

Rugged, reliable and versatile, the Hägglunds TADS hydraulic drive system from Bosch Rexroth is a powerful, self-contained drive package for applications and systems where space is limited.

The Hägglunds TADS is a completely self-contained, easy-to-install system and comes with either internal splines or a hollow output shaft with a compression coupling that easily mounts directly to a machine’s drive shaft. Flexible shaft couplings and associated alignment problems, extra long hoses or lines, and control lines between conventional power unit and motor are eliminated.

Small Footprint

Hägglunds’ groundbreaking way of using hydraulics to produce rotation delivers a number of benefits electromechanical systems can’t. For example, our direct drive system eliminates gearboxes and the need for heavy pedestal foundations, which shrinks installation costs and saves valuable floor space.

Easy to service

The compact open design affords easy access for routine maintenance.

Power when needed

TADS delivers maximum torque from zero speed with infinite start, stop and reverse, which will not damage the system. This feature can add an all-new level of productivity for some applications, in particular apron feeders, belt feeders, belt conveyors, and infeed conveyors in the bulk material handing & mining, recycling, cement, and pulp & paper industries. The newly reconfigured TADS design not only lowers system cost, it also brings TADS into the lower power ranges where its low TCO (total cost of ownership) makes it an attractive alternative to electromechanical systems.

The Hägglunds TADS unit features extremely fast hydraulic pump compensators that can reduce the wear and lengthen the life of any machine. Load-sensing and power-limiting tools enable operators to intelligently sustain peak levels of operation that outperform other systems–boosting machine uptime and helping reduce total cost of ownership.
