Danfoss Thorx CLM 8 S Cam Lobe Motor

Skid steer loaders are increasingly designed to deliver higher power and faster travel speeds, resulting in greater productivity. In line with this trend, cam lobe motors are replacing orbital motors in skid steers because they offer higher pressure ratings and greater efficiency, delivering 30% more force. However, cam lobe motors present several challenges, notably, two-speed shifting and package size. The Danfoss Thorx CLM 8 S cam lobe motor solves these issues, delivering better performance, higher efficiency, and longer lifetime.
