Reduced vibration and longer life

The new SFT PRO Series is specifically designed for 1,000 rpm rotational applications for power up to 350 horsepower (257 kilowatts). The engineers’ focus has been on reducing vibration and increasing the driveline’s service life, which is over 2,000 hours at a 5-degree pivot angle, almost twice as long as a conventional Cardan joint driveline.

The revolutionary Crociera PRO is permanently lubricated, meaning that after the first greasing in the factory it will never have to be re-lubricated again.
