Reliable on gravel and snow – TractionDrive

HAWE Traction Drive is a compact and powerful hydrostatic auxiliary drive for truck or semi-trailer. This solution reliably prevents the wheels from spinning when entering or leaving a gravel pit or when driving on snow. It can be easily switched on and off as required using a joystick in the cab. Developed jointly by a team of specialists in vehicle construction, drive technology and well-known fleet operators, TractionDrive has already been tested and successfully used for more than 150,000 km. In the following you will find an overview of your advantages:

Everything from one source:

The complete solution consisting of hydraulics and electronic components is tailored to your vehicle. Experienced HAWE practitioners take care of consulting, development and commissioning.

Intuitive operation and monitoring from the driver's cab:

HAWE TractionDrive is operated via a turn/push controller that allows the driver to increase or reduce the drive share if necessary. A display placed in the dashboard shows the driver the respective status for control.

Very good maneuverability:

The integrated controls automatically regulate power, wheel slip and speed. The drive motors support up to 18 km/h, can turn up to 22 km/h and are then hydraulically decoupled by the Traction-Drive block without wear. This turns the truck into a 4x4 vehicle at the push of a button.

More payload due to reduced additional weight:

Compared to a mechanical 4x4, HAWE's hydrostatic TractionDrive saves up to 750 kg of weight, which are available as increased payload for the fleet operator. For this purpose the hydrostatic TractionDrive and the tipping or additional hydraulics were combined in one hydraulic circuit.
