New Dana Transmission

Dana has announced the development of the Spicer TE50 powershift transmission, which is designed for large load haul dumpers, trucks used in underground mining, as well as wheel loaders.

Engineered for vehicles from 400 to 600 kW (544 to 816 horsepower), Dana claimed the Spicer TE50 transmission offers superior performance through improved fuel efficiency, smoother shifting, more precise vehicle handling, and optimized braking.  The transmission will launch with vehicle manufacturers in the second half of 2019.

The transmission is engineered to fit within current vehicle design envelopes and is offered with a four- or eight-speed gearbox that provides optimized shifting ratios.

It is available with advanced automatic lockup, which improves fuel efficiency by enabling direct drive even at low speeds.  An integrated, automatic retarder reduces brake wear and enables smoother, quieter braking.  Dana’s new transmission is also equipped with three heavy-duty, auxiliary pump drives.

“As the market for mining and construction vehicles moves toward larger vehicles, demand is growing for advanced technologies that support greater productivity without sacrificing precise handling,” said Aziz Aghili, president of Dana Off-Highway Drive and Motion Technologies.  “The Spicer TE50 transmission delivers a robust solution that meets the performance requirements of heavy-duty, high-power applications that operate under some of the most challenging conditions in the world.”
