Field tests on working vehicles have shown fuel savings of up to 25 percent over traditional transmission designs, with additional savings possible through further optimization with equipment subsystems.
"The HVT R2 has shown the value of powersplit technology at every stage of development, both in fuel economy and in application performance," said Diego Cornolti, head of sales and product management for Dana Rexroth Transmission Systems. "We have confirmed these gains through extensive testing on multiple off-highway applications, and we are collaborating with several original-equipment manufacturers to deliver HVT technology on market vehicles later this year."

Dana Rexroth HVTs enable sensitive, precise vehicle positioning with a stepless drive that offers improved acceleration while maintaining tractive effort. They optimize the operating point of the diesel engine by decoupling engine speed from drive speed, and maintenance costs are reduced by utilizing hydrostatic braking and wear-free directional reversing without clutches.
The HVT R2 is a modular platform that delivers a full suite of configuration options and software controls, such as direct or remote mounting, flexibility in shift control and drive strategy parameters, and the deployment of up to three power take-off (PTO) pumps.
The HVT system designed by
The HVT R2 will be exhibited by Dana as part of a 21-tonne (23-ton) drivetrain system for front-end loaders in stand 5A K 064 at Intermat.
