Dana Rexroth Transmission Systems’ R2 hydromechanical variable transmission (HVT) is a modular platform that delivers various configuration options and software controls, such as direct or remote mounting, flexibility in shift control and drive strategy parameters, and the deployment of up to three power takeoffs. Designed to improve 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 180 to 260 hp (135 to 195 kW) of engine output power. Initial front-end loader tests demonstrate fuel savings in the drivetrain of up to 25% when compared with a conventional torque converter transmission.
