Hannover, Germany—Allison Transmission, a global supplier of fully automatic transmissions for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles, will showcase its products at Interschutz 2015. The company’s booth will be located in Hall 27, Stand K38.
Vehicle manufacturers worldwide offer Allison Automatics for a variety of fire and emergency applications, including airfield crash trucks, ladder and tanker units, ambulances, and other equipment. Serving urban, off-road, and airfield environments, Allison transmissions deliver high performance and supply uninterrupted power to the drive wheels via advanced Continuous Power Technology™.
Premiere: MAN TGM, TGS trucks with Allison 3000 Series™ and 4000 Series™ models
MAN and Allison are working together to make MAN TGM and TGS trucks perform even better. Allison fully automatic 3000 Series and 4000 Series transmissions will soon be available in the medium- and heavy-duty classes of MAN vehicles.
Interschutz visitors can view a MAN TGS 18.400 4×4 chassis displayed by Allison. This specific vehicle was produced to operate in the Austrian Alps. Its 400-horsepower engine coupled with an Allison 4000 Series fully automatic transmission delivers exceptional acceleration and performance. Allison 4000 Series models feature torque multiplication and continuous power shifts to ensure unrivalled vehicle launch, acceleration and control, even under exceptional load conditions and over difficult terrain.
A Mercedes-Benz Econic 1830 L, 4×2 with HLF 20/16 body (fire truck) and Allison 3000 Series fully automatic transmission will also be presented at the Allison stand. The vehicle, currently operating in Hannover, has a smaller than typical turning radius of 13.5 meters due to a rear steering axle. In comparison to a standard vehicle radius of 16.5 meters, the Econic HLF is suitable vehicle for dense urban areas with narrow roads and alleys. An HLF 20/16 body combined with the Econic low-entry and rear steering axle results in a compact and highly maneuverable vehicle. Allison’s patented torque converter allows for precise maneuvering, even at very low speeds, for the best control in critical situations. In addition, Allison Automatics offer a top-mount engine-driven power takeoff (PTO) provision for easy integration of best-in-class emergency equipment.
Allison provides a vareity products for each firefighting and emergency vehicle—whether it’s the 1000 Series™ for ambulance, firefighting, and command vehicles or the 3000 Series and 4000 Series for special-purpose vehicles, like turntable ladders and cranes or water tenders and airfield crash trucks.
With Continuous Power Technology, sophisticated electronic features, and easy integration of driveline and engine driven PTOs, Allison transmissions increase performance, functionality and safety when lives are on the line.
Allison products will also be featured at various exhibition stands for Interschutz visitors. On display at the MAN stand visitors can see an Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting TGS 33.540 6×6 BB Euro V with an Allison 4000 Series model and Ziegler body, as well as a TGM 15.290 4×4 BL Euro VI with an Allison 3000 Series model and Rosenbauer body HLF 20. Among other manufacturers, Mercedes, Iveco and Scania will also feature Allison-equipped vehicles on their booths.
