9-speed direct-drive transmission with hydraulic/pneumatic gearshift and single-plate clutch
To enable engine power to be transferred to the road as quickly as possible without loss due to friction, the Axor drive configurations are precisely aligned with engine output and the transport task at hand. The 9-speed direct-drive transmission with special gear-ratio steps delivers impressive performance in medium-distance transport operations by ensuring an optimum transfer of tractive power to the road. Options available for Axor trucks developing 265 kW (360 hp) and above include a 16-speed overdrive transmission in conjunction with the robust HL 7 planetary axle. Both are perfectly harmonised drive configurations with low-maintenance axles for economical, quiet, low-wear operation.
