Allison-equipped Construction and Mining vehicles featured at bauma 2013

OEMs display Allison fully automatic-equipped vehicles at bauma exhibition in Munich, Germany. 

MUNICH, Germany – From the 15th to the 21st of April, nearly half a million people will flock to Munich to see the latest construction and mining vehicle innovations at bauma 2013. Site operators investing in increased performance and improved productivity, despite the obstacles such as steepening grades, perilous surfaces and unmerciful temperatures, these site operators choose Allison transmissions to carry their heaviest loads up the highest peaks and far beneath the earth’s surface.

Visitors will have the chance to investigate why many construction and mining operators specify Allison fully automatic transmissions from OEMs and vehicle suppliers, even if they are working in some of the harshest environments in the world.

Allison Transmission is specified by OEMs such as Perlini, Astra, Mercedes, Randon Vehicles and Hino Trucks.  

Don’t miss your chance to visit Allison’s stand (hall A4, booth 304) and see Allison-equipped vehicles during bauma 2013. Among others, Mercedes-Benz will be displaying the Zetros 1833, a 4x4 underground mining tractor (hall B3-B4, booths 11 and 13), and Bell will present the new B25E and B30E articulated dump trucks (hall B4, booth 108), all equipped with Allison 3000 Series fully automatic transmissions. TEREX will show the TR400 and TR60 models (hall F7, booth 710), and Perlini’s earthmoving DP 705 dumper will also be present (hall B4, booth 109). At Iveco’s stand (hall B5, booth 205/306), visitors can see the new Astra HHD9 equipped with Allison’s 4700R model, recently released following the success of the former HHD8.
