Bell to Use Allison Transmission in Next-Gen Dump Trucks
Allison Transmission recently announced a partnership with Bell Equipment Group Services to integrate and evaluate the Allison TerraTran™ in the next generation of Bell’s articulated dump trucks.
A variant of Allison’s 4000 Series™ on-highway transmission, the TerraTran is purpose built for off-highway applications such as articulated dump trucks, mobile crane, and wide-body mining dump trucks. TerraTran was developed based on customer input, which indicated a need for the proven reliability and durability of Allison’s 4000 Series transmission, but with the increased horsepower, torque and gross vehicle weight (GVW) capability needed for off-highway applications, while also adding fast reverse capability.
Allison’s TerraTran has maximum power capability of up to 800 hp, and torque capability up to 3,200 Nm (2,360 ft lb), dependent upon the application in which it is deployed. TerraTran also features 7 forward and 2 reverse speeds. With the additional fast reverse, TerraTran delivers improved productivity and optimized vocational efficiency.
“Allison has established a successful relationship with Bell over the past 25 years and we look forward to continuing our longstanding partnership through the integration of our latest propulsion solution for Bell’s evaluation,” said Kartik Ramanan, executive director, Global Off-Highway Sales, Customer Support and Service Engineering at Allison Transmission.
