Allison Transmission will exhibit its Off-Highway Series of fully automatic transmission models at Bauma 2019, the world’s leading trade fair for construction machinery (April 8-14; Hall A3, booth 320, Munich).
Allison offers unrivalled reliability for the toughest applications by dump trucks, tippers and concrete mixers, with products that are specified by OEMs such as Terex, Bell Equipment and Volvo Construction Equipment. Allison’s booth will feature a cutaway model of the 4000 Series transmissions as well as an interactive augmented reality experience whereby visitors will be able to rotate transmissions 360 degrees and go inside an Allison transmission.
With Allison’s Continuous Power Technology™, drivers achieve faster acceleration, increased operational flexibility and increased productivity. An Allison fully automatic transmission increases power while a manual or automated manual transmission (AMT) loses power with every shift. Trucks are easy to manoeuvre, to creep in soft soil and to navigate in tight spaces. They are better on hills thanks to the 2nd Reverse feature and have more control on steep grades. All Allison Transmissions are equipped with Allison’s FuelSense® 2.0 software, which allows fleets to optimise fuel economy and performance to their specific needs.
A Brazilian concrete mixer fleet owner recently reported it could transport over eight per cent more concrete, in seven per cent less time than mixers equipped with manual transmissions, due to the larger number of trips possible over the course of a day.
A construction vehicle fleet equipped with Allison transmissions will enjoy more uptime and lower maintenance costs. Manual clutches wear and eventually burn out, which means a vehicle spends more time being repaired and less time on the road. Allison Automatics require only periodic oil and filter changes.
