Aspen launches self-propel drive system
By Sarah McCay20 November 2014
US manufacturer Aspen Equipment Co. has launched its new Aspen Drive System, a non-mechanical self-propel drive system that interfaces with OEM chassis software and hardware.
Aspen Equipment’s VP of operations, Todd Foster, said, “Aspen Equipment answered the industry’s need for greater safety, efficiency and ergonomics. With an intuitive radio remote control, a single operator does not need to climb up and down from his post as the system ‘talks’ with the Allison transmission and chassis Engine Control Module (ECM) to control forward/ neutral/reverse shifting, service braking, emergency braking and acceleration.”
The design patent pending Aspen Drive System has been very well received by Aspen Equipment customers. The drive system can go up to 6 mph, is easy to install and has positive braking for safety.
