The ultimate advancement in speed reducers-Dodge® MagnaGear XTR™. Engineered with Dodge proven planetary and helical gear technology!
MagnaGear XTR reducers’ simple power-dense design offers torque ratings from
100,000 to 920,000 in-lbs. assuring increased reliability in a more compact, economical, heavy-duty package. With this torque range, MagnaGear XTR reducers will accommodate horsepower of over 2,500 HP, helping make this reducer line well-suited for a variety of high torque applications.
MagnaGear XTR reducers were designed to meet or exceed AGMA minimum bearing life. This results in a projected bearing life which more than doubles that of many competitors’ reducers. Plus, with the MagnaGear XTR reducers’ tandem seals and improved cooling system, you can always depend on low maintenance operation and maximum value for your money.
MagnaGear XTR reducers are ideal for rugged environments and, with their universal housing, they can be configured and mounted to suit your application. (Click here to download a PDF of the MagnaGear Gearing Engineering Catalog.)
Design Elements and Proven Dodge Features
Longer-life Bearings: Bearing designs meet or exceed AGMA standards, resulting in projected L-10 life over twice that of many competitors.
Tandem Lip Seals: Working together, MagnaGear XTR reducer’s standard HNBR lip seals provide high temperature protection and twice the sealing power to contain lubricant and protect against contaminants.
Power-dense Design: Heavy-duty, power-dense design gives you more power in less space and proven DODGE Planetary Gearing.
Universal Housing: Mono-block housing with multiple mounting pads allows a variety of mounting configurations and is reversible to minimize spares.
Finned Bevel Input: Housing has a finned bevel input for maximum heat dissipation.
Oversized Inspection Covers: Oversized inspection covers on the MagnaGear XTR reducer housing allows easy accessibility.

Rugged Performance at a Lower Cost
25 – 2,500 HP, Eight Sizes: With their rugged cast-iron housings and monoblock design, the new Dodge MagnaGear XTR reducers offer a variety of horsepowers and convenient sizes to fit most applications.
Higher Torque Capacities: Unmatched in their features and capabilities, Dodge MagnaGear XTR reducers provide torque capacities from 100,000 up to 920,000 in-lbs. Sizes represent Torque Rating x 1000 in-lbs.
Example: 525K = 525,000 in-lbs.
Multiple Configurations for the Perfect Fit: Dodge MagnaGear XTR reducers are available in parallel shaft or right-angle configurations. Sizes 390k and below offer a solid or hollow shaft output. Sizes 525k and above include solid shaft output. Hollow shaft option features patented twin-tapered bushing system, which minimizes wobble for longer life and is also easy to install and remove.
They also come in several mounting configurations including swing-base and tunnel housings to suit your applications. The universal housing reversible mounting gives you the option of right hand or left hand mounting for flexibility and minimizing spares.
Engineered to Handle the Toughest Environments: The new MagnaGear XTR reducers complement the DODGE Gear family of products and are ideal for bulk material handling in dirty, dusty, harsh environments. They can be found in the mining, aggregate, grain, power plant, and wood products industries in a wide range of applications.

Features and Accessories
In addition to their proven technology and high-performance design features, Dodge MagnaGear XTR reducers offer a complete line of engineered accessories for greater versatility.
- Internal lift-off style backstops
- Shaft fans
- Electric fans
- Alternative cooling packages
- Swing-base mounts
- Tunnel drive configurations
- Torque arms
- Base plates
- Variety of input and output couplings
Bushings: First introduced on the Dodge TORQUE-ARM® speed reducer, the patented twin-tapered bushing system provides easy-on/easy-off mounting for hollow shaft reducers. A tapered bore in both sides of the reducer’s output hub fits snuggly against a matching taper on the outer surface of the bushing. This helps deliver maximum torque and shock load capability, while reducing wobble and helping to eliminate driven shaft damage.
This unique concept has revolutionized the industry by helping keep reducers from seizing to the driven shaft.
Tandem Seals: On most competitive units, two seals are offered only as an option. However, two seals are standard equipment on the new Dodge MagnaGear XTR reducer. Working together, these seals provide high temperature protection and twice the sealing power. They feature an inner seal and an excluder seal to prevent contamination. Plus, they incorporate HBNR seals (rather than Nitrile or Viton) for longer life while minimizing shaft wear. Taconite seals are also offered as an option. Both have radial lips with grease cavities.
Housing/Covers: Unlike typical competitors, the housing on these new reducers features large access covers. In addition, the end plates are bolted-not plugged. This allows quick access into the unit for easier maintenance.
Condition Monitoring: Provisions for three-axis heat/vibration monitoring assure reliable performance.
New Oil Sampling Port: Standard on the MagnaGear XTR reducer, the sampling port allows quick and easy oil sampling- reducing maintenance time.
Unique Cooling System: System’s design keeps unit cooler so it runs longer and smoother, helps lower energy usage for greater savings.
Power-matched Components: Components are power matched for optimum performance at a lower installed cost.
