Don’t let operator fatigue stand in the way of optimal productivity. Here are the transmission features that will help you get the job done more efficiently.
Operator fatigue is a major deterrent to achieving optimal productivity—especially for all-purpose tractors. Operator fatigue will decrease if you have a transmission that will do more of the work for you or even anticipate your needs. Here’s how to select the right transmission for the job.
ActiveDrive 4 semi-powershift transmissions (for Maxxum® tractors)
A simple transmission with a clutchless autoshift option that allows the tractor to shift gears automatically within a given range. It’s an excellent way to help reduce operator fatigue during applications with frequent load changes, such as working hilly terrain or varying crop conditions.
ActiveDrive 8 Dual-clutch Transmissions (for Maxxum and Vestrum® series tractors)
This transmission delivers uninterrupted torque through more working speeds, faster shuttle shifts and simplified shifting. This 24-speed transmission features eight powershift speeds in three electronically shifted ranges. This transmission option also includes automated features such as smart range shift, memory shuttle, brake-to-clutch and smooth shift to simplify speed selection and reduce operator fatigue.
CVXDrive™ Continuously Variable Transmission (for Maxxum and Vestrum® series tractors):
It’s your best-in-class answer to achieving peak efficiency at all times. This transmission option takes technology from high-horsepower Magnum™, Puma® and Steiger® series tractors and applies it to Maxxum and Vestrum series tractors. Think benefits like maintaining desired speeds without gear-shifting; automatically selecting the most efficient transmission ratio for the desired speed or load; seamless speed changes through varying conditions. It’s an ideal transmission for loader work, baling hay or roading. Plus, the easy-to-use split throttle design helps ensure peak efficiency at all times.
