Munich, 26 October 2022 – At the 2022 edition of Bauma, Carraro is unveiling a new modular transmission concept, THE, “Transmission Hydrostatic Electric”.
This range of new products has been developed to better meet the modern needs of our customers through a special feature where hydrostatic and electric applications can be switched.
The aim behind this concept is to give vehicle manufacturers a solution where they can fit out a vehicle with a hydrostatic or electric version, without having to make changes to the chassis or driveline layout.
THE transmissions are highly configurable and will be available in two versions, with synchronised 2-speed, and with powershift. Optional configurations of THE transmissions include an emergency brake and a 4WD disconnect system.
This highly versatile solution is particularly suitable for telescopic handlers, backhoe loaders, compact and small wheel loaders, as well as wheeled excavators.
