Cotta’s new creep drive transmission is designed to install in the vehicle drive line after the main transmission. In the creep mode, the main transmission is placed in neutral and a hydrostatic motor rotates the drive shaft through a reduction gear set in the creep drive gearbox. Shift to truck mode and the vehicle operates normally with the main transmission.
Operating in the creep mode allows precise vehicle speed control down to inches per minute. In addition to speed control, the main transmission is removed from the the wear and tear of start-stop operation.
Since hydrostatic drive provides both speed control and fwd/rev capability, the creep drive system is well suited for integration into remote control systems. Applications include, refuse trucks, paint stripers, Cement trucks, post hole diggers, de-icer trucks, water blasters, and similar applications.
