Fleets Get a Boost

Technologies inside construction equipment continues to evolve, making the jobsite more efficient and safe for workers.

For instance, Marmon-Herrington released a hydro-mechanical transmission that maximizes the advantages of both hydrostatic and mechanical transmission technologies. By combining the benefits of low-speed hydrostatic drive and high-speed mechanical drive, this infinitely variable transmission is expected to provide fleets a significant reduction in operating costs, maintenance, fuel consumption, and greenhouse gas emissions, as well as associated driver benefits.

Technology such as this improves operating performance of a fleet, and reduces brake wear and maintenance. In the long run, this will improve the bottomline for construction companies.

This is only one example of new transmissions for fleets that will improve productivity on the jobsite. Equipment manufacturers are continuing to come to market with new advances.
