9-speed direct-drive transmission with single-plate clutch
The 9-speed direct-drive transmission systems for the Axor offer supreme shifting comfort and precise shift travel. They are perfectly aligned with heavy-duty short-radius distribution tasks and allow direct transfer of engine power to the wheels without incurring losses due to friction. The transmissions allow effortless gear changes and, thanks to optimised crawler gear and reverse gear ratios, enable precise low-speed manoeuvring. The special gear-ratio steps ensuring an optimum transfer of tractive power to the road – even if the load fluctuates when operating in city traffic or on country roads. Options available for Axor trucks from 265 kW include a 16-speed overdrive transmission with mechanical/pneumatic gearshift in conjunction with the robust HL 7 planetary axle. Both are perfectly coordinated drive configurations with low-maintenance axles for economical, quiet, low-wear operation.
