Downsizing – Reducing diesel engine power while maintaining overall performance

The Rexroth downsizing concept ensures increased efficiency in the entire system to minimize emissions, fuel consumption and space requirements using smaller engines – all without sacrificing the overall performance capability of the machine. Highly efficient hydraulic systems form the basis for this downsizing strategy.

The essential point of interest for optimization in downsizing are the travel drive, the working hydraulics and the electronic control.
