Transmission and Transaxle Solution for Tractors

Development of all types of transmissions and transaxles for agricultural machines

The transmission / transaxle is one of the major parts defining the structural layout of the tractor. Finding the fitting solution to an existing portfolio and fulfilling all market requirements is the target. Technologies like CVT and shifting under load are becoming standard solutions.


The Challenge

  • How can we develop a tractor transmission fitting into the existing production facilities?
  • How can we develop an efficient tractor?
  • Which transmission fits best to my wished application?
  • How do we develop a perfect interacting powertrain?
