Dana Rexroth R2 HVT.tif

Dana Rexroth’s R2 hydromechanical variable transmission (HVT) features a modular platform that delivers a suite of configuration options and software controls, including direct or remote mounting, flexibility in shift control and drive strategy parameters, and the deployment of up to three PTOs. Designed to maximize efficiency and reduce overall vehicle ownership and operating costs, the R2 HVT is suitable for front-end loaders, motor graders, industrial lift trucks, reach stackers, forestry skidders, and other off-highway applications requiring 135 to 195 kW (180 to 260 hp) of engine output. Initial front-end-loader tests demonstrate fuel savings in the drivetrain of up to 25% when compared with a conventional torque converter transmission, according to the company.
