Reduced fuel consumption

Crawl slow, run lean

Can I-Shift with crawler gears really help boost your fuel economy? Sure. Because previously, you often had to be willing to sacrifice fuel economy for startability. But thanks to the crawler gears, we can now specify your truck with a faster rear axle ratio, allowing you to stay on cruising speed at much lower revs when you’re driving on decent roads. This lowers your fuel consumption by up to a couple of percent.

Perfect control at very low speeds

Perfect control in any direction

Low-speed manoeuvring is one of the most challenging aspects of the job. Thanks to a transmission ratio of up to 32:1 (and up to 37:1 in reverse), I-Shift with crawler gears let’s you drive at speeds as low as 0.5-2 km/h. You always have total control, making it easy to park with precision when you’re about to load or unload your cargo, and to avoid accidents that can ruin your day and your productivity.

Adds to the versatility of the truck

Say yes to more jobs.

I-Shift with crawler gears adds to the versatility of the truck, letting you use the same truck for a host of different driving conditions and assignments. Drive both on-road and off-road? Need to transport extreme loads? Work at high altitudes? Special low-speed applications? No problem. The crawler gear module only adds 120 mm to the length and 48 kg to the weight of I-Shift.
