Hydromechanical Transmission Usage for Log Trucks

N.V. Shevchenko


It was justified the advantages of forest hydromechanical transmission usage for log trucks. It was described the method of picking torque converter and coordination of its work with the engine. It was constructed calculation and mathematical model for the truck with hydromechanical transmission and done comparative analysis of parameters of acceleration for cars with hydromechanical and manual transmissions. Using the computer program calculating the translational motion, considering torsional vibrations in the transmission, the results of calculation of parameters of acceleration, fuel economy and performance with different timber trucks load.
