DuraMatch™ transmission provides Auto Deceleration System (ADS) which automatically slows the truck when the accelerator pedal is released and brings the truck to a stop which helps to significantly extend brake life. In addition, this feature assists the driver to accurately position the truck in front of a load.
There are 10 ADS settings, programmable via the dash display by a service technician, which deliver different braking characteristics, from very gradual to aggressive, to suit the application. Controlled Power Reversal; the Pacesetter VSM™ controls the transmission to deliver smooth direction changes.
The VSM reduces the throttle to slow the engine, initiates auto-deceleration to stop the truck, changes the transmission direction automatically and increases the throttle to accelerate the truck. The system virtually eliminates tyre spin and shock loads on the transmission and significantly increases tyre life.
