EPD optimises efficiency

By Maria Hadlow18 May 2010

Merlo's EPD (EcoPowerDrive) is a new electronic control system, which combines management of the hydrostatic transmission and the diesel engine. The system is designed to optimise the overall efficiency of the machine in terms of consumption, performance, and noise.

Merlo says that fuel consumption is reduced by up to 30%; external noise made while the machine is moving is reduced by 2.5 dB(A) and performance is better than conventional hydrostatic transmissions with an "automotive" function.
