Dana - Spicer TZL16 Powershift Transmission.JPG


The Spicer TZL16 powershift transmission from Dana is engineered to supply 19-ton (21-t) front-end loaders with higher horsepower capability, reduced maintenance, and quieter operation. With a rating of 200 to 245 hp (150 to 180 kW) and a 555-mm (22-in) drop, the Spicer TZL Series is a four-speed transmission platform using internal components from Spicer powershift transmissions already available for the off-highway market. The TZL16 includes high-energy-capacity forward and reverse clutches, adaptive clutch modulation, and helical gears to deliver a transmission with improved shift quality. The Spicer TZL16 transmission also features two 400-N•m (295-lb•ft) SAE C pump drives with a variable pump ratio and 240-mm (9-in) pump spacing, enabling optimal displacement system pumps and hydraulic plumbing.

New Holland is ramping up its focus on vehicles that burn alternative fuels, unveiling the prototype for a methane-powered tractor set for introduction in the 2020 time frame. The engine slashes operating costs, reduces emissions and cuts noise.
Commercial vehicles are beginning to adopt alternative energy sources, but the transition remains slow. Batteries and an array of renewable fuels are seeing more usage, but costs and infrastructure remain hindrances for these fragmented technologies.
Hoist Liftruck Manufacturing is bringing full electrification for some of the biggest forklift trucks, motivated only in part by regulatory pressures. They are also proving to be less expensive to operate versus their ICE counterparts.
Various levels of electrification, connected solutions and alternative fuels are among the technology pathways that will lead to reductions of CO2, according to AVL's Dr. Marko Dekena. He spoke with Truck & Off-Highway Engineering about a variety of topics ahead of this year's AVL International Commercial Powertrain Conference.
