Allison Transmission to display off-highway solutions at Bauma

Published:  27 February, 2019

Allison Transmission will exhibit its Off-Highway Series of fully automatic transmission models at Bauma 2019, the trade fair for construction machinery.

Bauma will take place from April 8-14 in Munich, and Allison's stand will be at Hall A3, booth 320.

Allison offers transmission systems for the toughest applications including dump trucks, tippers and concrete mixers, with products that are specified by OEMs such as Terex, Bell Equipment and Volvo Construction Equipment.

Allison’s booth will feature a cutaway model of the 4000 Series transmissions, as well as an interactive, augmented reality experience whereby visitors will be able to rotate transmissions 360 degrees and go inside an Allison transmission.

With Allison’s Continuous Power Technology, drivers achieve faster acceleration, increased operational flexibility and increased productivity. An Allison fully automatic transmission increases power while a manual or automated manual transmission (AMT) loses power with every shift. Trucks are easy to manoeuvre, to creep in soft soil and to navigate in tight spaces. They are better on hills thanks to the Second Reverse feature and have more control on steep grades.

All Allison Transmissions are equipped with Allison’s Fuelsense 2.0 software, which enables fleets to optimise fuel economy and performance to their specific needs.

A Brazilian concrete mixer fleet owner recently reported it could transport over 8% more concrete, in seven per cent less time than mixers equipped with manual transmissions, due to the larger number of trips possible over the course of a day.

Manual clutches wear and eventually burn out, which means a vehicle spends more time being repaired and less time on the road. Allison Automatics require only periodic oil and filter changes.
