Dana shows HVT R3 at INTERMAT
The R3 is the first of a new range of hydro-mechanical variable transmissions from Dana
Dana Rexroth Transmission Systems’ HVT R3 is the first of a series of hydro-mechanical variable transmissions resulting from the 50-50 joint venture between Dana and Bosch Rexroth AG.
The R3 is for wheeled loaders with engine outputs of up to 265kW and uses a combination of hydrostatic and mechanical drives to offer fuel savings of up to 20%.
Cleverly, the HVT R3 will allow the operator to preset a maximum travel speed, or preselect a fixed engine rpm and use the transmission’s characteristics to keep the engine working at its most fuel-efficient point.
