In order to also reduce service costs through increased maintainability, ZF engineers have fundamentally overhauled the cooling system of the transmission. The transmission heat exchanger, which was located on the side of the transmission housing of the first EcoLife, has disappeared. With the EcoLife 2, the transmission heat exchanger and retarder heat exchanger have now been combined, with the cooling capacity remaining the same. These and other structural changes reduce the weight of the EcoLife 2 by up to 20 kilograms. With the “ZF DriveLife” offer, fleet operators will have the option of predictive maintenance in the future, with the tool constantly providing information on the state of the transmission. It will allow irregularities to be quickly detected and eliminated before expensive repairs and extensive downtimes come to pass.
