Dana Holding Corp. recently began production of the Spicer TZL Series, a new line of powershift transmissions for premium front-end loaders manufactured in China. The first Spicer TZL16 transmission rolled off the assembly line in late February at the Dana assembly facility in Wuxi, Jiangsu, China. The Spicer TZL16 transmission is engineered for 17-t (19-ton) ZL50 front-end loaders, which account for about two-thirds of the front-end loaders manufactured in China, according to Dana. The supplier has begun development on the Spicer TZL18 transmission for 21-t (23-ton) front-end loaders and the Spicer TMG14 transmission targeted for 110- to 160-kW (147- to 214-hp) motor graders. Production of these products is expected to begin this spring in Wuxi.
