Dana unveiled a new solution for electric zero-turn mowers featuring compact, high-efficiency Spicer Torque-Hub drives and Dana TM4 motors.
The technologies support electrification through an efficient, power-dense profile that minimizes energy consumption through permanent magnet concentrated windings, extends working time, reduces noise and vibration and fits within limited design envelopes, according to the company.
“With their diverse ranges of specialty vehicles and application requirements, the agriculture and turf management sectors present unique challenges for original-equipment manufacturers and equipment owners facing the energy transition,” said Jeroen Decleer, senior vice president and president, Dana Off-Highway Drive and Motion Systems. “Dana offers the market expertise, engineering resources, and portfolio of innovations that compress development timelines while addressing expectations for performance, efficiency, and sustainability.”
The solution leverages Dana TM4’s cross-market expertise in permanent magnet and induction motors, power electronics, thermal management, coil winding, outer-rotor topology and motor and inverter control algorithms.
