Dual Drive drive system

Two Drive Concepts in One

The Dual Drive drive system offers a combination of a hydrostatic and mechanical drive, bringing together the technical and economical advantages of both in one design.

The vehicle accelerates, depending on the position of the accelerator pedal, in hydraulic mode and then automatically switches from the hydrostatic drive into the direct mechanical drive until the top speed is reached.

Advantages of the Dual Drive drive system

  • Compensates for the high loss of efficiency of the hydraulic drive at high travel speeds
  • Significantly improved efficiency of the direct mechanical drive
  • Substantial increase in traction at top speed
  • Reduction in engine noise levels and fuel consumption, even at high speeds
  • Reduction in exhaust emissions
  • Less wear and lower heat generation

The efficient Dual Drive drive concept is available on the Holder S series.
