Spicer® Off-Highway Transmissions and Electronic Controls

Overview

Dana offers a full range of Spicer® transmissions and torque converters to handle applications that require 50 to 1,000 horsepower (37 to 746 kW).

 

All off-highway transmissions can be specified with Spicer electronic control systems to enhance performance even further. A range of options enable precise inching, eco-drive, power drive, and overlap control.

Product Selector Tool

Hydrostatic Transmissions

Available in continuously and infinitely variable transmissions for improved fuel economy and maximum vehicle performance.

  • Disconnects engine speed from wheel speed for improved efficiency and control    
  • Offers forward, reverse, and braking with hydrostatic motor
  • Delivers high torque at low speeds

Hydrodynamic Powershift Transmissions

Delivers the highest level of simplicity and serviceability with advanced control options for improved shifting.

  • Eliminates disconnect clutch    
  • Reduces shock/impact driveline loading
  • Prevents engine stalling and over-speeding
  • Provides smooth start-up and acceleration
  • Balances power to load

Hydromechanical Variable Transmissions (HVT)

Through a joint venture with Bosch Rexroth, Dana delivers hydromechanical variable transmissions, which combine mechanical and hydrostatic travel drives to maximize fuel savings up to 35 percent.

  • Utilizes the first full hydrostatic drive range at low speeds    
  • Directs a larger portion of engine power through a parallel mechanical path at increasing speeds
  • Enables highest efficiency at maximum travel speed as all power moves through the mechanical path
  • Identical advantages apply for reverse operation
