I-Shift

12-speed splitter and range gearbox with automated gearchanging system. I-Shift can be fitted with an a compact retarder, power take-off, emergency power steering pump and oil cooler.

AT2612D  Direct  2600  60 
ATO2612D  Overdrive  2600  60 


Manual gearboxes

14-speed splitter and range manual gearbox with two crawler gears and twelve synchronised forward gears, plus four reverse gears. Cable operation give short and distinct gearshift strokes and eliminates vibrations in the gearshift knob. Patented synchromesh with servo function means low gearchanging forces. The gearboxes can be fitted with a compact retarder, power take-off, emergency power steering pump and oil cooler.

Clutch-dependent power take-offs
PTR-F: Connecting flange attachment and low-rev or high-rev.
PTR-FL/FH: Connecting flange attachment and low-rev or high-rev.
PTR-D/PTR-DM/PTR-DH: Low/medium/high-rev with DIN-connection for direct attachment of a hydraulic pump.
PTRD-F: High-rev with connecting flange attachment for direct-fitted propshaft.
PTRD-D: High-rev with dual drive. DIN connection front and rear for direct attachment of hydraulic pumps.
PTRD-D1: High-rev with dual drive. Connecting flange attachment at the rear and DIN attachment at the front.
