Introducing the THORX motor family

The all-new THORX product line delivers improved performance and higher efficiency to match the evolving customer demands in mobile transmissions.

The CLM 8 S has been developed in close collaboration with our customers and is based on a well-proven radial piston motor design, also known as a cam lobe motor, which is commonly used in closed-circuit medium power propel applications.

We offer rapid prototype delivery which will allow your application to get to market faster.

Designed for construction

The CLM 8 S motor is designed to fit perfectly for construction machines with chain drives, such as Skid Steer Loaders, using existing and proven technology that Danfoss has refined to meet the high demand of today. These motors have been optimized for physical size, lifetime, features, and installation cost.

Features and benefits

World class performance: Achieve better performance at low RPM and improve your high-speed efficiency with THORX motors.

Efficient two-speed technology: THORX offer you the most efficient two-speed technology in the industry.

Leading on length: Improve robustness of chains and achieve easier integration and assembly of machine thanks to the compact size of THORX motors.

Smooth two-speed operation: Improve two-speed shifting thanks to the THORX design which delivers 70% shock reduction and a consistent and short response time - even at low temperature.

Integral multi-disc parking brake: THORX motors offer the strongest parking brake in the market. The brake is designed to withstand 100 dynamic emergency stops during machine lifetime.

Flexible program: THORX motors feature a wide range of mounting interfaces and shaft options to suit perfectly onto your machine.
