Auto Command Transmission

 

 
INNOVATIVE AUTO COMMAND™ TRANSMISSION
 
Designed and built by New Holland, over 10,000 multi award-winning Auto Command™ continuously variable transmission (CVT) have been built. This all new CVT transmission, available on across the entire T8 range, benefits from four direct drive points with 100% mechanical efficiency which have been precision engineered to ensure that they perfectly match to the most frequently used speeds during heavy draft work, secondary cultivation activities, high speed in-field work, such as baling or mowing, and high speed transport activities. Advanced double clutch control further enhances efficiency. Quite simply, it is the smoothest and most productive CVT around.
 
A SPEED FOR EVERY NEED
 
Auto Command technology allows the operator to set a target speed of between 30m/hr right through to 50km/hr and regulate it to the nearest 0.01km/hr. No steps. No range changes. Just seamless speed to match your every need.
 
MAKING THE MOST OF AVAILABLE TORQUE
 
New Holland has developed its Auto Command™ transmissions so they can exploit the low running speed, high torque FPT Cursor 9 engines. With 40kph ECO, the engine can run at a fuel efficient 1400rpm.
 
FAST DIRECTION CHANGES
 
Changing direction is simple with Auto Command. The operator can either move the CommandGrip™ handle, use the powershuttle switch on the handle or use the steering column mounted shuttle lever.
 
ACTIVE STOPSTART
 
A key safety feature of Auto Command is Active StopStart. When the tractor is brought to a standstill, the transmission prevents the tractor moving backwards or forwards. Even with a heavy load. When the transmission takes up drive there is no risk of roll back on steep inclines. For safe parking, an electronic brake is easily engaged via the shuttle lever.
 
DROOP CONTROL
 
When working in Auto and Cruise modes, use the droop control dial, situated to the right of the operator, to reduce the engine speed at which maximum forward speed is obtained.
