The PG115 transmission is a versatile design used to power Back Hoe Loaders, Telescopic Handlers, Rail Vehicles, Airport Vehicles, Site Dumpers and in industrial applications.
The PG115 is an automatic select or button select transmission using an electronic controller. It has six forward and three reverse gears with hydraulically operated clutch and gear selection design. A range of helical gear ratios are available to match and maximize engine and machine performance. It has a maximum engine power range of up to 95kWatts (130Hp) and is rated for torque forces of up to 800Nm (600 lb ft.) The transmission has SAE 3 converter housing for engine mounting. Forward and reverse can be selected on the move for shuttling operations.
The PG115 gears feature helical teeth. In contrast to straight cut gears the contact area of the individual helical tooth is longer and up to three gear teeth on each gear are in contact at any one time. Helical teeth increase the surface area of contact across the gears, leading to a reduction in the concentration of surface forces, reducing noise and extending gear life. The transmission features tapered roller bearings on all gear shafts designed to counter the axial forces that are inherent in helical gear systems. The transmission has a steel case to maintain alignment.
The PG115 has both co-axial or non-co-axial options. The co-axial variant features a drive shaft that passes through the transmission to allow the engine to drive a hydraulic pump of SAE C, 2 or 4 bolt design remote of the transmission drive. This increasing efficiency and improving safety allowing the hydraulic pump to be driven even if the vehicle is stationary. The non-co-axial variant can be fitted with disc and pad type park brake. Both variants can be fitted with temperature, pressure and speed sensors. The PG115 is available in 2 wheel drive, selectable 2 to 4 wheel drive or 4 wheel drive permanent variants with optional SAE 1410, 1480 and a disc brake option on the non-Co-axial.
Applications: Back Hoe Loaders, Telescopic Material Handlers, Rail Vehicles, Airport Vehicles, Site Dumpers and in industrial applications.
The Bevel Drive is a product designed to be used with the PG115 non co-axial transmission. The Bevel Drive gives a 90° turn to the direction of the engine output. This allows the engine to be positioned at 90° to the axles. The Bevel Drive is fitted to the engine and the transmission is fitted to the SAE 3 torque converter housing on the Bevel. The bevel orientates the transmissions outputs to be aligned with axles inputs. The gain is a vehicle that can be designed with a narrow wheel base.
