The automated gearbox of Iveco Trakker called Eurotronic: low operating costs and high comfort
Trakker offers all of the technological excellence of the EuroTronic automated gearbox. It is controlled by three mode switches mounted on the dashboard, with gear changes via the right hand steering column stalk.
The advantages are significant: a reduction in weight of between 50 - 60 kg compared to the manual gearbox, reduced dimensions and fewer pneumatic and electrical connections. The absence of synchronizers makes gear shifting quicker and more precise: the system avoids incorrect gear selection and protects the engine from over-revving. The EuroTronic gearbox can be utilized in full or semi automatic mode. The automatic gear shift is calculated on the basis of load conditions, road conditions and the driving style: vehicle performance, fuel consumption and comfort are thereby optimized. For low speed manoeuvring there is a dedicated mode which gives greater control over the vehicle driveline (forward and reverse gears) when required i.e. reversing into loading bays, coupling trailers, demounting and mounting bodies, manoeuvring in confined spaces. This is achieved by electronically increasing the travel of the accelerator pedal by up to 70%. The clutch actuation is more sensitive and can be controlled by the driver via the accelerator pedal.
