Part of the ZF efficiency package, the fully powersplit cPOWER continuously variable technology (CVT) for construction machinery offers high loads at low speeds in combination with a high dynamic, meeting the need for lower engine speeds and engine stabilization by a constant speed. Hydrostatic-powersplit transmissions ensure consumption benefits in wheel loader applications, including bucket-filling, transporting, and loading. The percentage of hydrostatic power is kept low to achieve an optimal degree of efficiency, reducing fuel consumption even in short loading cycles. The cPOWER transmission series uses construction kit modules and features continuously variable drive over the range, hydrostatic-mechanical powersplitting in all driving ranges, reduction of diesel motor speed independent of driving speed, and up to 25% less consumption and up to 20% higher efficiency.
