Horton Expands its Line of Viscous Fan Drives for Commercial Trucks

Horton Inc., of Roseville, Minn., has expanded its line of viscous fan drives with the introduction of the new live center LCV40 and LCV80 models.

According to Horton, the LCV40 and LCV80 fan drives have been designed to meet the rigorous needs of multiple OEM and aftermarket off-highway applications, including medium- and heavy-duty vehicles, agriculture, construction and generator sets.

The new fan drives feature a lightweight, compact design with a unique housing and cover for greater heat dissipation, reduced fan noise and improved airflow.

Both fan drives boast low off-speeds that greatly reduce parasitic loss while providing more available horsepower and impressive fuel savings.

As organizations continue to focus on reducing equipment downtime, the completely sealed design of Horton’s LCV40 and LCV80 will relieve some of the pressure with its superior durability and maintenance-free operation.
