The R2 HVT 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 PTOs. It is the latest powersplit system resulting from the 50-50 joint venture between
Designed to maximize efficiency and reduce overall vehicle ownership and operating costs, the R2 HVT is ideal for front-end loaders, motor graders, industrial lift trucks, reach stackers, forestry skidders, and other select off-highway applications requiring 180 to 260 hp (135 to 195 kW) of engine output power.
Initial tests on front end loaders with
"From the beginning, equipment manufacturers have readily recognized the dramatic increases in efficiency that result from combining technologies from Dana and Bosch Rexroth," said Jeroen Decleer, managing director of Dana Rexroth Transmission Systems. "As we enter the final stages of testing and development, OEMs are seeing firsthand the unique benefits that can result from integrating hydrostatic, mechanical, and control systems through a modular approach."
The HVT optimizes 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.
This HVT system helps reduce complexity for equipment manufacturers, since the entire system of gears, clutches, and hydrostatic units is managed by an advanced electronic control unit (ECU) and optimized for efficiency by a single supplier.
This week at CONEXPO/CON-AGG, the R2 HVT will be exhibited by Dana in booth 85114 as part of a 23-ton (21-tonne) drivetrain system for front-end loaders, and by Bosch Rexroth in booth 80216. Both companies are located in the South Hall of the
