EasyDrive

The synergetic traction drive.

This system combines the advantages of a fuel-saving manual transmission for driving at speeds up to 89 km/h with a hydrostatic traction drive for working at speeds between 0.1 and 50 km/h. Advantage: working speed can be set steplessly and independently of engine speed and can be maintained at that level with the cruise control function. Incidentally, you can also use it to pull away and manoeuvre without causing any wear to the clutch. Plus, the driver can also choose to make an instantaneous switch between the stepless and mechanical drive system when changing locations. All of that results in high levels of efficiency and relieves drivers of more stress so that they can better concentrate on the work.

The synergetic traction drive can be varied simply in four different ways:

  • Using the accelerator and brake pedals
  • Using the working mode cruise control
  • Using the left-hand steering column control
  • Using the multifunction joystick

Advantages at a glance.

  • Gears can be changed during driving
  • Swift change between manual transmission and hydrostatic traction drive
  • Simple operation and activation
  • Working mode for working with a constant engine speed
  • Drive mode for stepless driving between 0 and 50 km/h
  • Choice of practically-oriented drive settings "efficient", "comfortable" and "powerful"

Find your local Unimog dealer and talk about your specific requirements. Or arrange for a test drive and see for yourself how beneficial the EasyDrive synergetic traction drive system is.
