ZF IndustriesThe company offers a new range of axles and transmissions for mobile excavators. Designed for machines with tractive torque from 400 to 700 lbs.-ft., the HL Series of transmissions includes the HL 250, HL 270 and HL 290, which replace the HL 70 and HL 100. The number of axles provided by the company is reduced to three, and vehicle classes with a service weight to 25 tons are now covered. Benefits of the transmissions and axles include a more compact drive system, improved gearshift quality and reduced noise levels.
