Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)

Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)

TG 7300/8300 models feature AGCO’s Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). Recognized as one of the best and most reliable transmissions in the industry, CVT has been used in more than 150,000 off-road agricultural vehicles since its inception in 1996.

The CVT’s true advantage is that it can efficiently provide infinite speeds, from zero to 41 mph, at virtually any engine rpm. While the number of gears limits a conventional shifting transmission, the CVT fills in those gaps, increasing field speed and performance. The CVT lets you choose an exact ground speed, engine speed or a combination of both, ensuring that firm, continuous traction is applied, minimizing wheel slip and ground disturbance.

You can control driving modes with the foot pedal, joystick or power shuttle. The power shuttle lever provides seamless forward and reverse shuttling and an active standstill (de-clutch) mode, and also lets you change speed in either direction by simply pushing the lever forward or puling back.

The TerraGator Management System (TMS) maintains an intelligent electronic link between engine and transmission- using pedal or lever modes- to automatically optimize engine speed to sustain any given ground speed. Using TMS reduces fuel consumption at times when high engine speed is not required. This smart system allows you to program the minimum engine rpm that will be required to achieve maximum application system efficiencies.
