BUENOS AIRES, Argentina – Allison Transmission, the world’s largest manufacturer of fully automatic commercial-duty transmissions, showcased advanced technological innovations at Expoagro 2016, the biggest open-field agricultural exhibition in Argentina.
Allison 2500 fully automatic transmissions incorporate a torque converter and planetary gears, as well as advanced electronic controls. Each transmission features Continuous Power Technology™ preventing power loss during shifting to deliver the highest productivity and fuel efficiency in the field.
Agro-industry leaders, including Metalfor, Praba and Ombu featured Allison’s 2500 transmission technology for the first time in their vehicles, while Caimán and Pla continued highlighting the transmission’s quality and durability within this demanding sector.
- Metalfor launched the 7040, its most recent development in sprayers, now equipped with an Allison 2500 model transmission.
- Praba presented a lighter and more reliable sprayer, incorporating state-of-the-art technologies, such as an Allison fully automatic transmission.
- Ombu introduced its first self-propelled sprayer, the Allison-equipped PAO 3000.
- Caimán made the SPHC model with a carbon fiber barrel and Allison transmission available for test drives. Already popular, the Allison-equipped SPHC is being exported from Argentina to other countries, including Australia.
- Pla displayed the MAP II 3250F automatic sprayer, already renowned in the market, with an Allison transmission and Deutz engine.
"Allison has been working with the Argentine agro sector for years,” said Roberto Larossa, Southern Cone regional manager for Allison Transmission. “Equipment performance on soft ground, proven durability and fuel efficiency are important to our customers which is why OEM manufacturers are increasingly specifying Allison automatic transmissions.”
