Volvo Trucks – One Minute about I-Shift with crawler gears


I-Shift with crawler gears
is great news for truck operators carrying heavy loads
in demanding situations. It provides a unique startability
from standstill with loads of up to 325 tons. It also helps truck operators to drive
at speeds as low as 0.5 km per hour. This is a huge help
when performing precision manoeuvres. The crawler gears are added
to a regular I-Shift gearbox. The transmission is available in
a choice of direct drive and overdrive, with one or two crawler ratios. In an I-Shift gearbox
with two crawler gears, the lowest ratio is 32 to 1. To sum up, I-Shift with crawler gears basically means
that you get two gearboxes in one, suitable for both heavy
or long-haul assignments, with preserved low fuel consumption.
