Developed for telehandler applications up to 12,000 lb., Dana’s new driveline comes equipped with a compact Spicer 312 dropbox for high-power hydrostatic motors.

The new hydrostatic dropbox functions as a continuously variable transmission without torque interruption and delivers enhanced performance with precise movements at low speeds, reduced fuel consumption, Dana said. It also incorporates an integrated spring applied hydraulic release parking brake.

The transmission is designed to be coupled with the Spicer 222 front and rear heavy-duty axles, which both incorporate a limited-slip differential and maintenance-free brakes. The complete driveline system is optimized for efficiency as well as noise, vibration and harshness, the company said.

To support the industry’s transition to zero-emission vehicles, Dana optimized the axles and driveline system to support a variety of architectures, allowing customers to retain the same driveline solution while choosing between implementing a hydrostatic dropbox or electrically driven unit.
