AION™ Friction Drive Wheel Kit
for Blaw-Knox* Pavers
The Revolutionary Cost Saving Solution for
Extending Rubber Track Performance

Minimizes Downtime & Maintenance Schedule - No more replacing drive wheels from worn or broken drive bars. Asphalt trapping between drive wheel and rubber track issue can be eliminated with a simple adjustment.

Provides Maximum Work-Life - Eliminates impact force between drive bar and track lug found in positive cog drives, extending rubber track work-life by up to 2 times and providing smooth operation.

Resist all the Elements - Proprietary long lasting rubber compound is resistant to UV light and oils in paving applications.

Reduce Replacement Costs - New Design that allows the use of a rubber track with smaller lug reinforcement - costing up to 50% less per track.

Simple & Quick Installation

1. Fits existing planetary without any modifications.

2. Install inner half, mount the track, install the outer half of the wheel.

3. Use same lug nuts from the positive cog drive wheel.

4. Tension the same as you would a positive cog drive.

AION™ Friction Drive Vs. Positive Cog Drive

AION™ Friction Drive
allows track to dissipate
stress to over 50%
of the wheel surface
area - also, with no
drive bars, track lugs
stay damage free,
increasing track life.

Positive Cog Drive
creates stress
points on only
the engaging &
disengaging track
lugs - causing track
failure & ‘bouncy’
operation.
