I-Shift software package

Heavy duty transport (TP-HD)

TP-HD optimises I-Shift for heavy duty transport with high gross combination weights (>85 tonnes). Regardless of the gross combination weight, the driver can always optimise drivability by selecting or deactivating the heavy duty mode, and activating the long haul mode. The functions in the software package also offer benefits for trucks hauling multiple trailers.

Manual gearboxes

14-speed splitter and range manual gearbox with two crawler gears and twelve synchronised forward gears, as well as four reverse gears. Patented synchromesh with servo function means low gear changing forces. The gearboxes can be fitted with a compact retarder, power take-off, emergency power steering pump and an oil cooler.
