ZF Launches First Pilot Project for Electrified Mobile Excavator Drivetrain




ZF recently announced the launch of its first pilot project involving electrification of a wheeled excavator drivetrain. The system consists of a 2-speed powershift transmission, electric motor and inverter. It can be scaled up to peak torque 850 Nm and continuous power of 80 kW. Three systems of the electric central drive system eCD50, eCD70 and eCD90 are available to cover different vehicle sizes in the targeted applications.

The pilot comes shortly after ZF has started volume production of its eTrac eCD20 electrified driveline system for compact equipment like compact loaders.

With this future-oriented solution, technology leader ZF is setting new standards for electrical drives, especially when it comes to integrated system solutions. The product portfolio for mobile excavators is rounded off by a newly developed electrified swing drive and the well-established MULTISTEER and MULTITRAC front and rear axles.

The electric drive system satisfies all the expectations for performance and productivity found in traditional drivelines and combines them with the extensive benefits and opportunities that electric systems have to offer. Thanks to its modular design this new range of electric central drives can easily be adapted for various vehicle applications like backhoe loaders, telehandler, forestry equipment, etc. as well.
