Continuously variable transmission (CVT) for tractor
Precise manoeuvring plays a central role with telehandlers. The hydrostatic, continuously variable transmission, Hydrostar HC 85, facilitates this at full tractive power over the whole speed range. An important constituent are two crankshaft radial-piston motors. Due to their integration into the transmission system, the interfaces to the vehicle have been reduced. The transmission can be directly mounted onto the ZF axle or separately in the chassis.
