Dana Holding Corp. plans to produce a new Spicer TZL Series powershift transmission for premium front-end loaders manufactured in China, including the 17-t (19-ton) ZL50 with a 5000-kg (11,000-lb) load capacity and the 21-t (23-ton) ZL60 with a 6000-kg (13,200-lb) load capacity. Customer prototypes of the TZL16 transmission—engineered for ZL50 front-end loaders—are available for OEM testing, with production at the Dana facility in Wuxi, Jiangsu Province, scheduled to begin in the third quarter of 2011. An enhanced TZL18 version designed for ZL60 front-end loaders is expected to shortly follow. The TZL16 includes forward and reverse clutches with high-energy capacities, adaptive clutch modulation, and helical gears for improved shift quality. It also features two 400-N·m (295-lb·ft) SAE “C” pump drives with a variable pump ratio and 240-mm (9.4-in) pump spacing.
