Carraro introduces hydrostatic and electric transmission

27 October 2022

Called THE (Transmission Hydrostatic Electric), the new modular range of transmissions by Carraro has been developed to better meet the needs of customers in light construction equipment, such as telescopic handlers, backhoe loaders, compact and small wheel loaders, and wheeled excavators.

The transmissions have a special feature that allows hydrostatic and electric applications to be switched.

The aim behind this concept is to give vehicle manufacturers a solution where they can fit out a vehicle with a hydrostatic or electric version, without having to make changes to the chassis or driveline layout.

THE transmissions are highly configurable and will be available in two versions, with synchronised two-speed, and with powershift. Optional configurations of THE transmissions include an emergency brake and a 4WD disconnect system.

THE is exhibited at the Carraro booth in A3.325
