Energy efficiency, emission reduction, or total cost of ownership: current and future challenges point the attention of commercial vehicle manufacturers to the advantages of modern hydraulics. Bosch Rexroth is the leading manufacturer of hydraulic drive systems and the only full-service supplier of this type of drive for truck superstructures for municipal, airport and heavy equipment transporters.
For example, Bosch Rexroth developed the hydrostatic auxiliary drive system "Hydraulic Traction Assistant" (HTA) as an alternative to the conventional mechanical all-wheel drive system. HTA is extremely useful in vehicles designed for heavy-duty off-road use and in dumpers. For vehicles that deliver materials to construction sites from time to time or occasionally need to traverse slippery hills and passes in winter, HTA is the perfect solution.
