  • Publication number: 20210155302
    Abstract: A track assembly (15) for a track-driven vehicle, whereby the track-carrying beam (15) is arranged to hold a front and a rear wheel (16), one of which is driving, a plurality of carrying wheels about which wheels a continuous track travels, the track-carrying beam (15) is elongated and terminated by a first and a second gable end. The track-carrying beam (15) comprises an integrated compartment (37) and an opening (36) in one (35) of said gables, whereby the compartment (37) communicates with the surroundings via said opening (36), and whereby the opening (36) is arranged to allow for insertion of a transmission device for driving of said driving wheel (16) via the opening (36) in the compartment (37).

  • Patent number: 10543816
    Abstract: The invention relates to methods and systems for stabilisation of a vehicle with a chassis including a rear wheel bogie, a pendulum shaft rotatable through rotary bearings around an axis parallel to the longitudinal direction of the vehicle, a tipping arrangement on which a crane is arranged, and a stabilisation arrangement having first and second hydraulic stabilisation actuators in the rear wheel bogie. The tipping arrangement includes a rotating disk and rotary bearings, such that the rotating disk and crane are rotatable around a vertical axis, and first and second hydraulic tipping actuators in connection with the rotating disk, that can be rotated around a horizontal axis. The first stabilisation actuator and first tipping actuator are in fluid-mediated connection, and the second stabilisation actuator and second tipping actuator are in fluid-mediated connection. The stabilisation actuators are controlled based on the pressure at the tipping actuators.
