Applications

HTA can be implemented in 2- or 4-axle vehicles and makes it possible to add the AWD function to vehicle types for which the purchase of a mechanical system would otherwise be prohibitively expensive. This includes especially any vehicle which spends the majority of its time on-road and seldom requires AWD – yet needs to safely and reliably handle difficult terrain when called upon. Such vehicles include tractors and towing vehicles, dumpers, fire trucks, concrete mixers and pumps, skip and bucket loaders, tank and silo trucks, and wood transporters.

 

  • HTA is attractive especially for vehicles spending most of their time on paved roads but need good off-road capabilities.
  • HTA is available for 2- to 4-axle configurations
  • HTA can be implemented at any position in the vehicle, e.g. front-, leading- or trailing axle
  • HTA does not need heavy drive axles, additional gearboxes or mechanical differentials
