Transmission, gearshift

A tangible dynamic response, simple handling and low fuel consumption.

The Arocs comes to the construction site equipped with the advanced Mercedes PowerShift 3 automated gearshift. In short, this means a high level of driving comfort, precise gear selection, efficient power transfer and better handling.

Superior dynamic response, simple handling and low fuel consumption. The automated transmission ensures precise gear selection, short shift times, high driving comfort and a very high level of economic efficiency. Mercedes PowerShift is very simple to operate via the right-hand steering-column lever. Shift times are up to 20% shorter than with Mercedes PowerShift 2 and up to as much as 50% shorter than with Telligent® automated gearshift. The Mercedes PowerShift 3 applies sensitive sensor technology for gearshifting to ensure gear selection in accordance with the given driving and load situation. Overrun mode on a downhill gradient is identified and the gear is held. The crawl function with integral manoeuvring mode makes moving off easy and manoeuvring precise and responsive. Furthermore, there are various transmission modes and additional functions to make driving in construction transport easier.

With Mercedes PowerShift 3, additional functions such as direct shifting from 1 to R and reverse gears with high ratios provide for simple manoeuvring. The crawl function makes particularly easy work of moving off.
