I-Shift software packages

Basic (TP-BAS)
Supplied as standard with I-Shift and gives the gearbox its basic functions.

Distribution & Construction (TP-DICON)
Tailors the gearbox’s work for distribution and construction operations. Features include functions that aid the driver when starting and in close-quarter manoeuvring.

Long Haul & Fuel Economy (TP-FUEC)
Contains intelligent functions that minimise fuel consumption. This makes the program package particularly suitable for long-haul operations.
Long Haul & Fuel Economy with I-See (TP-FUEC3)
Adds I-See, including I-Cruise, to the Long Haul & Fuel Economy package, for even larger fuel savings.

Heavy Duty Transport (TP-HD)
Optimises I-Shift for heavy gross combination weights (>85 tonnes).

Manual gearboxes

14-speed splitter and range manual gearbox with two crawler gears and twelve synchronised forward gears, plus four reverse gears. 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.

Power take-offs

There is a wide range of clutch-independent and clutch-dependent power take-offs to drive all sorts of body equipment.

Clutch-independent power take-offs
PTER-DIN: Rear-mounted engine power take-off for direct drive of a hydraulic pump.
PTER1400: Rear-mounted engine power take-off with flange connection for hydraulic pump.
PTER-100: Rear-mounted engine power take-off with flange connection for hydraulic pump.

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.
PTRD-D2: High-rev with dual drive rear and single drive front. Two connecting flange attachments rear and one DIN attachment at the front.
