The H1 60-cm3 (23.6-in3) bent axis motor from Sauer-Danfoss was designed to improve reliability, flexibility, and efficiency, reducing fuel consumption and life-cycle costs. The motor is optimized for electrical control and withstands harsh working environments. Features include a displacement ratio of 32°, 0° capability, and a low pressure drop within the fluid galleries of the motor. H1 motors have a 6% efficiency gain at maximum displacement. The 0° capability provides for on-the-go shifting from 32 to 0°, such as in wheel assist applications, offering a smooth transition with little or no torque interruptions or sudden speed changes. The motor also shifts seamlessly between two speed ranges, such as work mode and travel mode, regardless of displacement settings. Typical applications include rough terrain forklifts, combines, sprayers, road rollers, wheel loaders, and road building equipment.
