Fastest Way to Productivity? Slow Down
Introducing I-Shift with Crawler Gears
Reinforced for severe duty applications
If you drive in extremely tough conditions, you will appreciate the reinforced I-Shift. It has been designed exclusively for environments where you frequently climb or descend gradients of above 10%, or drive in extremely rough terrain. This means that I-Shift is now available for conditions where a manual gearbox or the automatic Powertronic used to be the only options.
Driver comfort and safety
If your assignments demand high performance and frequent gear changes, choose I-Shift Dual Clutch. It provides unrivalled driver comfort. The torque is constant, so you can confidently change gear in the middle of a bend. And the power is transferred continually to the wheels, meaning a minimal risk of getting stuck or losing your grip in slippery conditions. Even when engine-braking downhill with down shifting, you can be sure of a firm and safe ride. I-Shift Dual Clutch is available for our 460, 500 and 540 hp D13K engines.
What the Dual Clutch adds
The dual-clutch transmission can pre-select the next gear while driving in the current one. So, one clutch is idling while the other is engaged. Thanks to two input shafts and an ingenious arrangement of gearwheels and selecting elements, two gears can then be selected at the same time. The result? Gear shifting that takes place in a fraction of a second - without interrupting the power delivery.
