Axles & Differentials »

The unique feature of a Pinzgauer is the independent axle articulation and diff locks. They all have portal (swing) axles as standard, these give a minimum of 700mm ground clearance, and enable each wheel to move in a vertical direction independent of it's corresponding wheel. This creates a much smoother ride when driving uneven surfaces, allowing each wheel to follow the terrain and providing maximum traction, eliminating the situation of "cross axle" which is common in other 4 x 4 vehicles.

The 6 x 6 models obviously have 3 axles, again with independent action on all 6 wheels. The differentials are lockable via hydraulic or pneumatic systems, and activated by either a simple lever (petrol) or switch (diesel) on the central console.

On a 4 x 4 model the driver has the option to lock just the rear diff, both the rear and front, or in extreme conditions, lock the diffs together so all 4 wheels are driven simultaneously, unlike other 4 x 4 vehicles where a "diff locker" has to be retrofitted.

On the 6 x 6 models the driver can engage the rear two axles together, or the front and both rear axles, again with the option to lock the diffs so all 6 wheels are driven simultaneously.

The punch line to this outstanding drive system is all differential locks can be engaged on the move, without having to stop as you would with a conventional "off road" vehicle.
