Case IH Maxxum is now available with ActiveDrive 8 transmission - a three-range, eight-speed powershift transmission featuring double clutch technology and some features normally only associated with the top-of-the-line Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).
The transmission comes with and works in conjunction with the Case IH Multicontroller console in the cab.
With ActiveDrive 8, the transmission automatically selects the right gear - not just the next gear - when the operator requests more or less ground speed. It has three ranges and a total of 24 speeds in both forwards and reverse. The double-clutch technology results in less torque interruption, while pedal clutching is not necessary for range changes, making this transmission more suited for power-hungry tasks where momentum is important.
The Maxxum Multicontroller offers the usability, efficiency and direct-drive feel seen in powershift transmissions and now enhanced with features like Brake to Clutch, APM, auto road/field modes and smooth shift.
