The more advanced automated gearshift is standard across the Rigid range, is simple to operate and provides a high level of driving comfort. With its sensitive gearshift sensors, Mercedes PowerShift 3 provides precise gear selection appropriate to the driving situation and the load carried at the time.
Precise gear selection and fast gear-changing ensure that the further advanced Mercedes PowerShift 3 automated gearshift transmits the power spontaneously and efficiently to the rear axle. This is possible thanks to an improved shifting strategy that accounts for factors such as gross combination weight, inclination angle of the road and accelerator pedal position when selecting the optimum gear.
Further benefits include the option of shifting quickly from 1 to R for easy manoeuvring, reverse gears with high ratios, the crawl function and EcoRoll. The crawler function is particularly convenient when moving off.
