MATCO mfg produces a superior 6 inch wheel and brake assembly for use with aircraft requiring less than 1860 lbs per wheel but needing high torque. This model uses 1.50 inch tapered roller bearings.Dimensions
The W600XT is a 6 inch wheel with 6.3125 inch width with an additional 1.37 inch caliper spacing. Bearing spacing is 3.42 inches and axle spacing is 1.78 inches. The total weight of this wheel and brake assembly is 11.9 pounds. The bearing axle diameter is 1.50 inches.
The W600XT is centrifugally cast utilizing 535 aluminum alloy for superior strength and corrosion resistance. This alloy provides a light weight wheel and affords many years of efficient performance. The W600XT features the B600XT brake assembly and high energy D6 disc for increased braking performance. (Specify the W600LXT when high torque but lower energy is desired) The B600XT brake uses three 1.50 inch diameter pistons in a single caliper to provide maximum torque in a low profile package. This internal caliper design is favored for use in many retractable gear systems for it's low profile compared to external caliper designs when low drag and clean lines are desired. The wheel is designed to use 6.00-6 aircraft style tires as well as any oversized tire since tire clearance is not an issue with the internal caliper design. The A6 axle or AXLE6 axle assembly (includes axle, nut, and washer) are designed to be used with the W600XT.
Performance The W600XT is designed for the following standards:
Static Capacity: 1860 LBS
Load Limit: 5580 LBS
Maximum Accelerate/Stop Kinetic Energy: 337932 ft-lb
Torque Rating (@450 PSI): 6441 in-lb
