How to demonstrate more convincing the torque capacity then installing the GCI-Chain in a large Ford F250 Pick-up truck? All the 620 Newton meters powered by the 6.8 Liter V10 engine are transmitted via a CVT to the rear wheels. For providing an additional LOW gearing this CVT is combined with a planetary gear system.  The Drive, Neutral and Reverse functions are integrated in this planetary.

This CVT, planetary unit and hydraulic system have been developed in cooperation with California based  company A.W. Brown Inc. and equipped with the 44 mm GCI Chain.

The CVT is operated manually and uses a highly efficient electric driven oil pump for pulley actuation with a minimum of complicated electronics, making the car ideal for developing countries aiming for CO2 reduction. Development is continued to improve the concept even more.

The F250 is ready for demonstration at our premises!
