John Deere 1400 Series SWEDA Axle

Model Photo

1400 Series SWEDA

  • Peak output torque: 47,400 Nm (42,000 in-lb)
  • Peak Vertical Load: 300,000 N (67,000 lb)
  • Reduction ratios: 27.927:1 - 30.578:1



Minimal footprint

  • Dual and wide tires can help in such situations, but they create additional demands on the axle—and that's where SWEDA comes in. SWEDA helps to leave only a minimum footprint without sacrificing rugged performance.
  • Greater flange-to-flange length
  • Larger axle shaft size
  • Increased outboard bearing capacity
  • Metal-to metal face seal to prevent oil leakage and keep debris out

Custom build

  • Inboard planetary final drive design
  • Increases tire size flexibility since the planetary does not compete for wheel space
  • Enables a wider variety of acceptable track widths than outboard designs
  • One integral oiling and cooling system
  • Independent or dual service brake actuation
  • Spiral bevel gear set design allows bi-directional operation
  • Input housings designed for use with oscillation hardware
  • Spring applied hydraulic release or manually applied park brakes are available on fixed mounted axles
  • Inboard wet brakes increase reliability and provide spark-free operation for regulatory compliance in hazardous environments
  • Inboard planetary design reduces heat transfer to tires
  • One oil supply is used for all planetary, brake and differential components, for better component cooling

Cost effective

  • We can "custom build" an axle to your specific feature, torque and load requirements. Our building block design consists of twelve modules of varying sizes, load capacity, ratios and specifications.
  • We will select the torque and load carrying capacity that best suits your application
  • Three axle families to better match your load and torque requirements
  • Gray or ductile iron axle housings for improved load matching
  • Standard or heavy-duty wheel bearings selected based on load requirements
  • Standard or extra wide planetaries available for better torque, shock and reverse load matching

Long axle life

  • The Final drives and Spiral Bevel gear set along with the structural components are designed for extreme applications
  • Planetaries not packaged into the wheel, allowing for larger size, which effectively handles torque and forward-reverse transitions making them more reliable
  • Sliding tooth contact of the spiral bevel gear set is minimized for longer life
  • A large oil sump ensures cool operation which allows longer life of the Spiral Bevel gear set, final drives, differential, differential bearings and pinion bearings
  • Inboard wet disk brakes are protected from contaminants and can last up to four times longer than dry disk brakes
  • Inboard wet disk brakes operate cooler and last longer due to large sump
  • No brake lines at the wheel end requiring protection
  • Inboard wet brakes provide spark-free operation for regulatory compliance in hazardous environments


  • Application engineers ensure axle specifications meet your vehicle torque, load,and operating performance requirements
