Eaton Light Duty Hydrostatic Transaxle Models 6, 7 and 11
The Eaton light duty hydrostatic transmission consists of a variable displacement radial ball piston hydraulic pump, a fixed displacement radial ball piston hydraulic motor and a system of valves, all contained in one housing. It offers advantages over mechanical and electric variable speed drives, and can be used in many different types of applications where variable output speed is a requirement.
Typical applications include lawn tractors, concrete saws, and agricultural sprinklers.
- Ball Piston design less sensitive to over heating
- Totally integrated pump/motor package
- Aluminum cooling fins
- Precise single lever control
- Proven, reliable
- Eliminates leaks from external lines
- Environment/temperature tolerant
- Can in some case eliminate need for external cooler
- Eliminates complex linkages
- Response - These transmissions respond faster than any other type of power-transmitting system.
- Precise speed - Has the capability of maintaining precise speed under varying load conditions.
- Ease of operation - One lever controls direction and speed smoothly without gear change.
- Low maintenance - Simple design keeps maintenance to a minimum.
- Increased Productivity and Versatility - It allows complete matching of power to load.
- Self contained - There are no external high pressure lines, separate drive components, etc.
- Simplified final product design - It reduces the number of mechanical drive components.
- Positive Braking Action - The lever that controls speed also provides braking. The output shaft speed decreases as lever is moved toward neutral. With lever in neutral, output stops.
- The Model 6 transmission is designed primarily for light duty applications requiring up to 1,9 kW [2.5 hp] output for continuous operation.
- The Model 7 transmission is an expansion of the light duty product line. The Transmission is a result of product refinements to the Model 6 Transmission. Most significant among these refinements is reduction in noise levels generated by various duty cycle situations at high torque or load conditions.
- The Model 11 transmission is designed primarily for applications with engines rated at 7,5- 15 kW [10-20 hp] at maximum speed of 3600 rpm, or electric motors up to 7,5 kW [1hp] at 3600 rpm.
