Eliminating the need for gearboxes, the Hägglunds CBM very large, heavy-duty, hydraulic motor range is said to provide direct drive for high torque applications ranging from wind turbines and tidal stream generators to very large bulk handling and processing plant.

According to Bosch Rexroth, this delivers 50% more torque, is 50% lighter than its predecessor and places less weight on the drive shaft to provide the highest torque-to-weight ratio.

 Additional benefits include full torque from zero, protection from shock loads and four-quadrant operation. The motor utilises the Hägglunds DU drive unit to provide infinitely variable speed along with accurate load control and fast response due to the low inertia.
