STEYR presented its first tractors with continuously variable transmissions (CVT) in 1999. The engine and transmission are regulated automatically by the S-tronic system depending on load, and easily controlled with the Multicontroller or accelerator pedal (parallel mode).
In 2000, STEYR launched the first tractors with continuously variable transmissions (CVT) in the power range 120 to 170 hp. This revolutionary technology is today still the benchmark in the higher power classes.
In 2016, the 40.000th tractor equipped with CVT transmition has left STEYR factory.
The transmission revolutionized the way to drive a tractor and led to the development of CVT in Europe. The CVT transmission is designed to maximize efficiency and reduce fuel consumption. It has infinite gear ratios that provide the operating controller logic to find the perfect balance of power and efficiency for the work you need to do.
