The synchronized 4 speed trans-mission with stages and half gears gives 16 forward and 16 reverse gears. The permanent 4 WD with lockable differentials on the front and rear axle combined with the hydraulic torsion damping and the switch-able and lockable independent suspension allow for a safe drive in the most difficult terrain or slopes. Load capacity up to 5 ton. Driver`s cabins of models TP450 and VT450 are unified.
In 2012 the company presented the world's first transporter with stepless drive, the VT450 Vario. It still has its sleek design, now what is revolutionary is the newly developed stepless, mechanical-hydrostatic, power-split drive. Those who are already driving a Terratrac with a hydrostatic drive will feel right at home in the new Viatrac Vario as the handling is virtually identical. The multifunction drive lever is used to precisely control the speed and many functions can be easily and conveniently operated at the touch of a button. Individually programmable speed levels can be activated via the TipTronic. The stepless drive is purely hydrostatic in the low-speed range and features mechanical-hydrostatic power split at higher speeds. This design helps to achieve an outstanding transmission efficiency and high traction. With the new model, Aebi is the first manufacturer worldwide to build transport vehicles with a stepless drive.
