Cotta Transmission Introduces New Creep Drive Gearbox
April 8, 2005
Cotta's new creep drive transmission is designed to insert in the vehicle driveline after the main transmission. In the creep mode, the main transmission is placed in neutral and a hydrostatic motor rotates the driveline through a reduction gear set in the gear box. Shift to truck mode and the vehicle operates normally with the main transmission.
Operating in the creep mode allows precise vehicle speed control down to inches per minute. In addition to speed control, the main transmission is removed from the wear and tear of start-stop operation.
Since hydrostatic drive provides both speed control and forward/reverse capability, the creep drive system is well-suited for integration into remote control systems.
Applications include refuse trucks, paint stripers, cement trucks, post-hole diggers, de-icer trucks, water blasters and similar applications.
