For Harvester up to 25 tons, Bonfiglioli supplies hub drive gearmotors delivering up to 40,000 Nm of torque . Bonfiglioli also offers electrically powered versions for hybrid machines. 

These offer better performance in terms of control, energy consumption and manoeuvrability, and also greatly reduce the risk of crop contamination. By applying a hybrid electric powertrains the harvester may get better fuel efficiency, higher productivity and be “greener”.

Bonfiglioli offers for this application its 600W planetary wheel drives coupled to a high power density electric motor, instead of conventional hydraulic. This complete mechatronic solution is designed for a high voltage hybrid powertrain system. 

Thanks to the compact dimensions, the technology development phase is faster because it is easier to convert an off-highway equipment from traditional into an innovative hybrid electric one.
