A fast responding automated manual transmission that has built-in intelligence.
Quickly and automatically choosing the right gear at all times.
How does it work?
• ESCOT automated manual transmission features a non-synchromesh manual gearbox that has an electronically regulated pneumatic gear changing system and an automatic clutch.
• The secret of seamless gear changes lies in the intelligent electronic control unit, controlling the pneumatic system that handles the clutch and shifts.
• By constantly receiving information about speed, acceleration, weight, road condition, torque demand and more, ESCOT can carry out every shift with extreme precision.
• It also communicates closely with the engine to adjust revs and engine brake effect for fast, comfortable, fuel efficient gear shifts.
ESCOT & New Quester GH11E engine - a winning formula for increased fuel efficiency.
Engines deliver high torque and pulling power at low RPMs, while flat torque curve minimizes need for gear changing. Meaning higher average speeds and lower fuel consumption in the long run.
1. 8-liter diesel engine
2. Low operating cost via reduced maintenance and long service intervals
3. Turbocharging with air-to-air intercooler
