Even if agricultural machines appear large and cumbersome, they must apply their force and power precisely and in a well-dosed manner. ZF driveline technology ensures the necessary sensitiveness for these requirements. Almost all renowned tractor manufacturers use continuously variable transmissions from ZF. In particular, their reliability, efficiency and ease of operation are highly regarded on the market.
Movement sequences flow easier using continuously variable transmissions from ZF, thus enabling an even more precise control of agricultural machines. Due to the fact that manual shifting is no longer necessary, the drop in power associated with gear changing does not occur. Four driving ranges are automatically shifted with unrivaled high efficiency. The ratios are selected to steplessly cover the speed range from 0 to 60 km/h.
Also farmers benefit from the continuously variable technology, especially in difficult driving situations: The continuously variable transmission ratio enables moving-off and stopping on a slope without using the clutch or brakes. Operational errors are almost eliminated. Since no shifting operations are required the drivers can completely concentrate on their work.
But also in economic terms continuously variable transmissions are unbeatable for large-scale agricultural work. They stand out by optimum utilization of engine power at maximum productivity and minimum consumption. In addition, their modular and compact design allows easy integration into many different vehicle concepts.
