Hydraulic Transmission
2 closed hydraulic circuits for stepless speed variation in both rotating directions. This machine is provided with 2 pull pre-setting systems that maintain the pre-set pulling value (also when the speed is reduced to “0”) by automatically adjusting the operation speed according to the friction and unexpected loads which may develop along the line.
