Plug n’ Play EcoMec
for Construction Equipment
CVTCORP transmission provides more power to the wheels compared to Powershift resulting in the opportunity to downsize the engine for cost and fuel savings. For some vehicles, the engine downsizing could result in using less than 55 kW engine and therefore, limits the need for expensive emission after-treatment.
The EcoMec is an attractive cost-effective transmission which fits in the same envelop space of today’s 3 to 6 speed powershifts with torque converter traditionally used in most construction equipment vehicles. The EcoMec is also available in lateral and vertical drop configurations like many of the common Powershift transmissions currently in use. The compact design allows for multiple input and output shaft options.
Ease of Use
The EcoMec with the transmission autoshifts between different ratios, makes it easy to operate and smooth to ride. The simple speed throttle allows easy speed and inching control. The integrated power shuttle improves operator productivity with repetitive jobs. The sophisticated control software allows for customizable vehicle responsiveness.
The sophisticated controls help preventing wear and tear often seen in today’s powershift transmissions where the machine remains in the same range during operation and avoid transmission repairs usually caused by high-speed shifting.
Different ground speed control options can further improve safety and benefits for machine owners. Load sensors can also be incorporated to limit top speed or speeds in designated work areas.
Compatible with Electrification
Hybrid electric and full electric vehicles will benefit from the mechanical CVT due to electric motor and drive size reduction, improved range and better battery management.
