Hydrogen is proposed by the European Union as a good alternative to gasoline or diesel, but doubts arise as to whether it is applicable to all types of vehicles.
As we mentioned in the previous blog post, in recent months there has been a heated debate on measures to achieve climate neutrality in the EU by 2050. For this reason, the European Parliament is in the midst of negotiations to bring forward a law banning the manufacture of combustion cars from 2035.
This law is causing controversy because the leading countries in the manufacture of combustion vehicles, such as Germany and Italy, are opposing it.
Among the various alternatives to diesel or gasoline is green hydrogen, a non-polluting gas obtained through the use of renewable energies. The characteristics of green hydrogen include the fact that it is the lightest chemical element in existence, can be stored and is sustainable.
The main use of green hydrogen is to be a clean fuel for vehicles and transport of all kinds, however, it is also used in other sectors and practices. It should be noted that Spain is a major producer of green hydrogen, since the largest plant in Europe is located in our country, specifically in Puertollano (Ciudad Real).
Therefore, it would be necessary to take into account the economic advantages that this could mean for Spain, because, as the gas can be stored, it can be sold to other countries. Consequently, this could benefit the national economy, while collaborating in the ecological transition of other territories.
It appears that diesel engines may have a second life, as engineers at the University of New South Wales in Sydney have developed a system to make a diesel engine run on hydrogen. Among the advantages of this system are that the engine produces 85% less carbon dioxide emissions and is 26% more efficient than a diesel engine.
But is this applicable to all types of vehicles? To date, the vast majority of scientific tests have been carried out on passenger cars, which may lead one to think that this system may not be equally efficient in its application in heavy commercial vehicles or trucks.
Trucks with hydrogen engines?
As mentioned in the previous section, most studies to date have considered passenger cars. Therefore, doubts arise as to whether trucks could be efficient with hydrogen as fuel, since they make long-distance trips with a large load.
Although we still cannot give a clear answer to this question, some studies and projects seem to shed light on this issue.
At the IAA in Hannover in September 2022, the prototype of the Mercedes-Benz GenH2 truck was exhibited and, in addition, tests were carried out with customers selected by the brand. At that time, green hydrogen obtained from the Shell station near the fairgrounds was used to observe the vehicle’s operation.
Months later, in November 2022, Daimler Trucks conducted more extensive testing of its hydrogen-powered trucks on public roads, at high altitude and fully loaded.
The hydrogen truck successfully crossed the Brenner Pass, which is one of Europe’s main freight arteries. Daimler is working to demonstrate the viability of the Mercedes-Benz GenH2 and is aiming for a range of more than 1,000 kilometers.
So far, the tests have yielded several conclusions. First, that the performance is comparable to that of a conventional diesel truck. Secondly, that the truck using liquid hydrogen has a longer range than those using gaseous hydrogen. The reason for this last characteristic is that liquid hydrogen has a higher energy density, relative to volume, than gaseous hydrogen. And so trucks using liquid hydrogen do not have to be refueled as frequently.
Among Daimler Trucks’ objectives is to continue to conduct further tests in mountainous terrain during 2023, with the aim of improving its trucks and starting series production as soon as possible.
The results have shown that this system is comparable in terms of efficiency and range to diesel engines. It was found that it achieved a range of almost 500 kilometers with a full tank and a full load without refueling.
Thus, there are indications that this new technology can replace fossil fuels in trucks and, in this way, achieve the objectives in the fight against climate change and pollution.
The ‘Keyou’ truck
German company Keyou has converted a combustion engine of an 18-ton truck to use hydrogen as fuel instead of diesel. Behind this project is the former BMW engineer, who has experience in R&D projects to use hydrogen in BMW cars.
In addition, Keyou announces total costs close to those of diesel, with a useful life of more than 700,000 kilometers and a range of 500 kilometers, all without CO2 emissions.
While in the case of cars, efforts are focused on battery electric vehicles, the use of hydrogen fuel cells seems to be increasingly gaining ground in freight transport.
However, hydrogen still faces a number of challenges, from production to storage. To meet these challenges, Nikola is proposing a possible solution to this problem: mobile hydrogen generators capable of refueling other fuel cell vehicles.
In this way, Nikola has announced a hydrogen truck that feeds other fuel cell industrial vehicles thanks to a mobile hydrogen feeder.
The latest projects and studies seem to indicate that the use of hydrogen fuel cells is a good alternative to the use of fossil fuels, as they maintain their efficiency and autonomy. However, there are still barriers in terms of production, storage, logistics and infrastructure.
Firstly, for hydrogen to be an environmentally friendly solution, it must be green hydrogen, i.e., produced from renewable energy, which is rare.
On the other hand, there are limitations in terms of distribution and storage of hydrogen, because it is a highly flammable gas with a very low density.
Finally, there is the problem of logistics, since hydrogen refueling sites would have to be created every 100 km. In addition, everything seems to indicate that refueling time would be longer than for diesel. The latter could delay the delivery of goods and lead to the need for a larger fleet to carry out the journeys.
In conclusion, we are getting closer and closer to the changeover, but we must continue to work on minimizing the drawbacks. The main objective is to make transportation as sustainable as possible in the future, without losing efficiency or vehicle autonomy along the way.

Discover which vehicles are used in the transport of goods, as well as their main characteristics… And become an #ExpertoMonedero!
Light vehicles, heavy vehicles -commercial and passenger cars-, special and agricultural vehicles… among others! We are sure that on more than one occasion you have doubted when classifying them, as it is sometimes difficult to differentiate them and remember which characteristics define them.
In this post we will focus on the types of vehicles used for the transport of goods and we will talk about their characteristics and functions. Are you interested? read on!
What they are, types and classification
Vehicles used to transport goods have an engine and at least four wheels. In addition, they can be of different types and have different characteristics. They can be light or heavy vehicles -depending on their load- and are: the truck, the van, the van, the vehicle derived from the passenger car and the adaptable mixed vehicle.
Light vehicle: “A motor vehicle specially equipped for the transport of goods whose maximum authorized weight does not exceed 6 tons, or which, even when exceeding this weight, has a payload capacity not exceeding 3.5 tons”.
Heavy vehicle: “It is a motor vehicle specially equipped for the transport of goods whose maximum authorized weight exceeds 6 tons and whose payload capacity exceeds 3.5 tons. Tractor units shall be considered as heavy vehicles when they have a towing capacity of more than 3.5 tons of load”.
Vehicles for the transport of goods are classified in CATEGORY N, which includes vans and trucks. These are motor vehicles specially designed and manufactured for the transport of goods by land.
Thus, the classification they receive according to their weight is as follows:
N1. With Maximum Authorized Mass (MA)M of 3,500 kg -including fuel, driver, passengers and merchandise-.
N2. With MAM between 3,500 and 12,000 kg.
N3. Over 12,000 kg.
In addition, it should be mentioned that the category corresponding to trucks that use both trailers and semi-trailers is CATEGORY O. However, on this occasion, we will not emphasize these, even though they can also transport goods, since trailers and semi-trailers do not have an engine.
Among its characteristics we can highlight that it has a cabin with a capacity of up to 9 seats, which is not integrated in the rest of the bodywork. Depending on their load, they can be classified as N1, N2 or N3 and can be light or heavy vehicles.
Depending on their structure, trucks can be rigid, articulated, road train and mega-trucks. Thus, depending on the type of goods they transport, we can speak of canvas trucks, open platform trucks, refrigerated trucks, heat trucks, tank trucks, closed trucks, car carriers and cage trucks.
It is a four-wheeled automobile whose cab is integrated into the rest of the bodywork, unlike the previous truck. It is intended for the transport of goods and can be a light or heavy vehicle, depending on its load.
Vans have a rigid separator made of sheet metal, which divides the part where the goods are housed from that of the seats. Removing the separator is considered a major reform in this type of vehicle, so it must be considered by a specialist to avoid accidents or problems due to the load.
Inside these vehicles there can be no bolted furniture and all cargo has to be secured with pulleys to avoid unforeseen events.
Examples of vans or vans for goods transport: refrigerated or isothermal vans, delivery vans, parcel vans, etc.
This motor vehicle is derived from the passenger car, of which it retains the bodywork, but is intended for the transport of goods. Thus, it should be noted that it has a single row of seats.
The vehicle derived from the passenger car has a separation panel between the load and the seats, the rear part being exclusively for the transport of material or goods.
Adaptable mixed vehicle
This type of vehicle is prepared for the transport of goods and people, either simultaneously or not, although they must be properly separated from each other by a safety grille when carrying the load.
The safety grille must be easy to put on and take off and it is not compulsory to wear it when going for the ITV inspection. In addition to this, the load must always be secured with straps to avoid unforeseen events or accidents.
The vehicle can only carry a maximum of 9 people, including the driver. Thus, it should be noted that in this vehicle it is possible to replace the load, either partially or totally, by people, by adding a seat.

The spare parts distribution grew 15% in the first quarter of 20
The National Association of Equipment, Parts and Accessories Dealers (ANCERA) highlights in its survey of the first quarter of 2023 the significant increase in independent parts distribution. In addition, the report highlights that around 95% of the spare parts dealers have reported to the association to have increased their sales during that period.
This is positive news for a sector that is currently being affected by the shortage of raw materials, rising energy and logistics costs, as well as the war in Ukraine. These factors are causing a lot of uncertainty in the aftermarket.

What is aftermarket?
First of all, a clear and concise definition of the term aftermarket should be provided, as sometimes even professionals may have doubts about what it covers.
The term aftermarket refers to the secondary market for vehicle parts and accessories. This sector covers everything from the manufacture and installation of components to their distribution and sale.
Thanks to it, vehicle owners can maintain and customize their cars with high quality parts, but at a more economical price than that of the original car manufacturers.
Now that you know what the aftermarket is and what it comprises, you may wonder… What are the short and medium-term prospects? Read on!
As we highlighted at the beginning of this post, spare parts distribution grew by 15% during the first quarter of 2023. Likewise, all forecasts seem to indicate that this growth will continue throughout 2023, but in a much more moderate way.
The ANCERA study forecasts that the sector will grow by 8% during the second quarter and end the year with an increase of 7%. However, these figures can only be confirmed once this period has elapsed. Even so, everything seems to indicate that 2023 will be positive for the aftermarket sector.
According to Harpreet Singh, the following factors could be decisive for the coming months in this market:
The penetration of electric vehicles and Advanced Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS).
The rise of connectivity.
The change in consumer preferences.
In turn, during the workshop held at the SERNAUTO meeting, other trends for the aftermarket were analyzed such as:
4. Synthetic fuels.
5. Distribution through e-commerce platforms.
6. The importance and need for training as a tool for brand positioning in workshops.
Will these macro trends be implemented? Everything seems to point to yes, however, due to the uncertainty in the aftermarket, the business opportunities proposed for the medium term are being reconsidered for the long term.
As we mentioned at the beginning of this blog, the aftermarket sector is suffering great uncertainty due to several factors such as the shortage of raw materials, the increase in energy and logistics costs, as well as the war in Ukraine.
Where we come from?
But… What factors and trends have led us to the current situation in the aftermarket world? The McKinsey report, announced in 2017 what would be the trends for the coming years in the sector, which have been (and will continue to be) fulfilled in the medium term. These are:
The rise of the Asian market, which is characterized by rapid development and very competitive prices.
The importance of connectivity and data exchange.
Independent after-sales. Increasingly, manufacturers are working towards having their own independent distribution networks.
Increase in online services. Thanks to the development of new technologies, companies in the sector can offer their services through digital channels, streamlining processes.
Increased price competitiveness, due to the growth of the sector and the development of business in Asia, a country that offers very competitive prices.
Everything seems to indicate that the growth of the first quarter will continue throughout the year, albeit more slowly.
Thus, the macro trends that will affect the distribution of spare parts have been analyzed and it has been possible to foresee that there will be a slowdown of these due to the situation of uncertainty that the sector is suffering.

Monedero has developed, through reverse engineering processes, Caterpillar C18, C15 and C12 application cylinder heads, which are highly demanded by the market.
In addition, in the b2b web platform of Auto Comercial Monedero you can find the Caterpillar C18, C15 and C12 application cylinder heads both in their bare and complete version -assembled in our own facilities-.
The Caterpillar C18 cylinder head has the following references: 22012000016 for the naked version and 22012100001 for the complete one. These are equivalent to the original part number.
The Caterpillar C15 application cylinder head has these part numbers: 22012000015 for the naked version and 22012100002 for the complete version. Both are equivalent to the original part numbers 2454324 | 2811640 | 2811640 | 2811640 | 2811640 | 2811640 | 2811640 | 2811640.
The Caterpillar C12 application cylinder head has as part numbers: 22012000017 for the bare version and 22012100004 for the complete version. These are equivalent to the original part numbers 0R8883 | 10R8884 | 1323208 | 1482133 | 1482144 | 1482145 | 2166951.
They apply to C18, C15 and C12 engine types respectively. These cylinder heads manufactured by Monedero are designed for industrial diesel engines with application on Caterpillar machinery or engines.
Caterpillar C18 engines are indicated for mechanical earth drilling applications, due to their power. Here we could highlight the Caterpillar MD600 Drill, ideal for application in mining, quarrying and heavy construction works.
Thus, Caterpillar C15 engines has a wide application in various industries such as agriculture (agricultural tractors, harvesters, irrigation equipment), construction (cranes, paving and transport equipment, shovels and draglines), mining, etc. Thus, this engine is one of the most popular and versatile of the brand.
As in the previous case, Caterpillar C12 engines can be used in various industries. Among these, the Cat C12 marine propulsion diesel engine brand stands out, which, thanks to its technology, becomes a high-performance ecological engine and allows excellent fuel economy. As a curiosity, it is worth mentioning that this type of engine can also be applied to recreational or commercial vessels.
Regarding the application of C18, C15 and C12 engines in trucks, we can find a great variety of brands and models. All of them are especially used in the United States where they have a great importance in the automotive sector. In the following, we will name some of the examples of application in the most popular trucks of the sector.
Kenworth W900 TurboMs Cat C18
Cat C18 engines are used in Kenworth trucks, which are mainly used in Mexico, where they are manufactured, and in the United States. One of the models that uses this engine is the Kenworth W900 TurboMS. The Kenworth W900 models are a true trucking legend, since their creation in the 1960s, they have occupied a very privileged place in the lives of U.S. and Mexican haulers.
The Kenworth W900 model is the favorite of North American trucks drivers. For this reason, it has been impossible to withdraw it from the market, despite the company’s efforts to offer the most updated versions. Thus, it has been decided not to completely end its production, but to do so in limited units.
Kenworth T600 6NZ Cat C15
The Cat C15 engine is also widely used in Kenworth trucks. One of the best known models in which it is used is the Kenworth T600, which is one of the most popular models among Americans.
The Kenworth T600 began to be manufactured during the 80’s, representing a breakthrough for the industry as it became the first aerodynamic model. Among its advantages, it can be highlighted that, due to its sloping hood, it was 22% more fuel efficient than those with conventional straight hoods.
In 1994, this model received the National Award for the Advancement of Motor Vehicle Research and Development from the U.S. Department of Transportation. This award recognized the T600’s advances in safety, energy savings and reduced environmental impact.
In the wake of this truck, the company has developed new versions such as the acclaimed T680, T680 FCEV and T680E.
The Cat C12 engine is used in a wide variety of brands, among which Kenworth stands out with its T800 model. This truck is particularly strong, versatile and durable, capable of coping with any demands, ideal for transporting goods over long distances.
Innovative technology and advanced manufacturing processes provide lightweight and fuel-efficient designs, which translates into lower costs for the owner.
Mechanical drilling machinery
As mentioned in the previous sections, Kenworth trucks are used especially in the United States and Mexico, but not on the European continent.
Thus, in Europe, the C18, C15 and C12 cylinder heads are used applied to their respective engines in mechanical drilling, agriculture, mining, forestry, etc. machines.
In the following, we will talk about one of the most modern and powerful drilling machines of the Caterpillar brand, which uses the C18 engine.
The new MD6200 drill is designed to offer maximum efficiency in bench drilling from 10 to 12 meters, standing out because it allows the application of the drilling angle for blasting with augers. This makes it the ideal drill for mining, quarrying or heavy construction applications.
Among the advantages of the MD6200 drill is that it occupies a much smaller transport space than similar drills in its category, which means that it can be transported by road with the mast installed. Its compact design allows it to be moved more easily and quickly, reducing travel time between holes.
In addition, it withstands the most demanding working conditions and is optimized for single-pass drilling.
In short, the MD6200 drill is more maneuverable and efficient than its class, while retaining more power than its class peers.

In this post we explain the different pumps that you can find in the engine of your industrial vehicle or truck, as well as their functions and some possible breakdowns.
The world of mechanics is very wide, because the automotive sector is constantly evolving as new products and innovations are constantly being introduced. Therefore, if you work in this sector, you must be continuously training.
In this post we will delve into one of the vital components for commercial vehicle engines: pumps. If you want to know the types that exist and the breakdowns that can arise… this is your article!
In #ACMonedero we are experts in the automotive sector and the #EquipoMonedero is here to solve your doubts… Keep reading and become an expert!
Types of pumps
In this post we will focus on the different types of pumps used in a industrial vehicle engine, their functions and the breakdowns they can suffer. It is important to specify this because not all vehicles have the same types of pumps in their engines.
In a industrial vehicle engine we will find: the oil pump, the water pump, the injection pump (in the engine), the AdBlue pump and the clutch pump.
The oil pump is responsible for lubricating all the internal parts of an engine. Due to its importance, manufacturers strive to ensure that they are long-lasting to avoid breakdowns, so it is quite difficult for them to fail.
Even so, it is important to emphasize that, in order to help it function correctly, it is vital to always maintain the correct oil level.
The water pump, also known as antifreeze pump, circulates the antifreeze in the engine. A failure in the water pump would lead to excessive heating of the engine of our vehicle. In the most serious cases, this would result in engine failure due to overheating.
Injection pump (on engine)
The electronic air injection pump is responsible for sending air to the injection system. If this part suffers a failure it would manifest very noticeable symptoms, because the vehicle would start to shudder and would give error in the system or V2.
The hydraulic pump is responsible for keeping the steering wheel steering “smooth”. If this component were to fail, the driver would quickly notice it, because there would be a lot of noise when turning the steering wheel. In the most severe cases, the steering wheel could even become stiff and the steering wheel would become immobile, making it impossible to move.
The AdBlue pump is a device in the anti-pollution system that is responsible for administering the AdBlue additive to the exhaust gases to ensure compliance with the European Euro6 pollution standard.
When this pump malfunctions, a fault code can be displayed on the light display. The consequences can be diverse, but the most common is that the vehicle expels too many polluting fumes to the outside. This, in turn, could result in a penalty for non-compliance with European regulations.
The clutch pump is located in the clutch pedal system and is responsible for making the clutch pedal “smoother” and therefore easier to shift gears.
If the clutch pump malfunctions, this can cause problems when shifting gears. Feeling the clutch pedal slack and hearing an unusual noise in the engine are some of the indications that something is wrong with your clutch pump.
To avoid premature wear of the clutch pump, some measures should be taken such as shifting gears smoothly, not leaving the clutch halfway in and avoiding frequent acceleration of the engine.

Auto Comercial Monedero launches two new oil pans, compatible with Mercedes Benz and Scania brands.
The leading company in the automotive sector has developed two oil pans, references that are among the most demanded in the sector in recent months. One of them is for Mercedes Benz 0M936 application and the other for Scania D13-DC16 application.
Both have been developed and manufactured by #EquipoMonedero, under the strictest quality standards. Thus, offering a more economical price to customers compared to original parts.Interested? Read on for more information.
Mercedes Benz OM936 application
Auto Comercial Monedero has developed an oil pan for Mercedes Benz application, specifically for the OM936 engine and compatible with its versions: 935912, 935913, 935914, 935915, 935916, 936910, 936912, 936916, 936972 and 936973. Therefore, it can be applied to Actros, Atego and Arocs vehicles.
If you’re passionate about mechanics, you’ve probably wondered at some point what an oil pan is, what functions it has and what kind of breakdowns it could suffer. So… Keep reading and become an #ExpertoMonedero!
The oil pan is a sheet steel or aluminum alloy component, which is located under the crankshaft and connecting rods. It closes the engine block. This part has a concave shape, which is very useful for collecting the oil that lubricates the mechanical components in motion.
It is important to note that the oil sump is used in four-stroke engines. However, it is not present in two-stroke engines, because in these the oil is supplied together with the gasoline.
The oil sump has three main functions. Firstly, it collects the oil from the engine and ensures optimum lubrication of the vehicle’s moving parts. Subsequently, the oil is sucked by the oil pump and returns to the engine, repeating this process cyclically.
Secondly, the oil pan helps to cool the oil. This is vitally important, as it allows the oil to cool before repeating its path again, preventing overheating.
Finally, the oil pan is responsible for providing rigidity to the engine block. This is because the crankcase houses the connecting rods, pistons and crankshaft, preventing these parts from coming into contact with debris.
The oil pan must be of good quality and maintained in good condition, otherwise it may fail.
Due to its location in the lower part of the engine, it can suffer cracks or ruptures and, consequently, oil leaks. In addition, if it were to break, the engine could run out of lubricant and overheat due to the friction of the parts.
Another of the most common breakdowns is when the seals, which join it to the rest of the engine components, fail and leakage occurs.
It is also possible that, if the temperature of the oil increases excessively, gases may be produced, which would contribute to an increase in the pressure inside the oil pan and cause leaks. To avoid this, the most modern engines have a built-in depressurization or breathing valve.
Finally, it should be added that if it is not possible to remedy the faults described above, the crankcase should be replaced with a new one. Although this is a simple task, it must be carried out by a professional, because the bolts must have a specific tightening torque indicated by the manufacturer, and the gasket must be installed with precision. In this way, we will avoid problems in the engine and, consequently, in the vehicle.
B2B web platform
Monedero’s new B2B web platform has more than 1 million references. Through it, you can consult the references you need, since the search engine allows you to search both the product name and the original and OEM reference number.
Auto Comercial Monedero has developed a new version of Scania’s DT12 block with the purpose of increasing its strength and durability.
The leading company in the automotive sector has optimized one of the best-selling in its catalog, the Scania’s DT12 engine block. This new version is characterized by a new engine block cover, which softens the curvature of the previous version, increasing the resistance and life of the product!
The new release can be found on the Auto Comercial Monedero B2B web platform by searching for the Monedero reference number: 40010000001. This reference is equivalent to the original Scania references: 1424706, 1540323, 1851982, 2027585, 1425318, 1720096 and 2055383.
The new version of the block is compatible with Scania P/G/R/T series truck models, Irizar PB and Century buses, as well as Scania K/F/N series buses.
The bench cover
Scania’s first DT12 block was launched in 2018 and has been in constant evolution ever since. In the latest version, it debuts a new design of the engine bed cover, in which the curvature of previous models is softened, resulting in greater strength.
The engine main cover is one of the most relevant elements in the lubrication circuit. It is located just below the engine block, but always above the crankcase. The crankshaft is also located inside the part.
Among its functions, we can highlight the solidity it offers to the engine and the containment of the force generated by the crankshaft rotation. It also acts as a retaining wall for the oil.
Due to the important role it plays within the engine mechanism, it is of vital importance that it is resistant to avoid as much wear as possible due to the forces and high temperatures.
Although it is not usual, it can suffer breakdowns due to the passage of time or due to factory defects, such as the loss of liquids responsible for lubrication and cooling of the engine. This could lead to engine failure.
Auto Comercial Monedero was born in Motilla del Palancar in 1998, with the purpose of serving the automotive sector, providing the market with services and products with a high level of quality. Currently, the company develops, manufactures and distributes spare parts, being a reference in the sector and operating in more than 70 countries.

The company’s engineering department receives continuous training on cutting-edge issues in the sector, studying ways to improve products, processes and services. In addition, Auto Comercial Monedero collaborates with specialized entities in the sector. These help its professionals to improve in reverse engineering, which has a positive impact on product development, ensuring the Monedero guarantee.
Monedero has the best professionals specialized in reverse engineering, also known as retro-engineering. But… what exactly does this consist of?

Become an expert and master the characteristics, differences, advantages and disadvantages of the gearbox.
If you are an automechanics enthusiast, you have surely been interested in gearboxes at some point. You may wonder… Which one is better? What breakdowns can they cause depending on their typology?
Don’t worry because at Monedero we are experts in components for heavy and light commercial vehicles, special vehicles and buses. And in this section, we will tell you everything you need to know about one of the most important parts of your vehicle’s powertrain: the gearbox.
We know it is very important, but few people really know how it works or the wide variety of typologies, not to mention the advantages and disadvantages of each one!
We could define the gearbox as a system that takes care of transferring the engine torque to the driving wheels in an effective way. This means that the rotational speed of the engine is transcribed into different speeds for the wheels of the vehicle.
Gearbox types for trucks and buses
One might think that all vehicles can have the same types of gearboxes, but this is not the case. While it is common for buses, coaches and trucks to have a similar gearbox mechanism, in the case of passenger cars things are different.
For this reason, in this post we will talk exclusively about those used in trucks. These are: mechanical, automated and automatic.
· Mechanical gearbox:
A truck with a manual gearbox requires the driver to change the gear ratio. This is done when the driver depresses the clutch and moves the gearshift in order to adapt the power of the truck to the speed at which it is traveling.
Therefore, they need the clutch pedal to disengage the truck from the gearbox. In this way, the motive power is disconnected with the gearbox. If this were not the case, when shifting gears, the pinions or synchromesh could break.
Today, it is still quite common for passenger cars and light vehicles to use manual gearboxes. However, when it comes to heavy vehicles, automated or automatic gearboxes are the most common. In recent years, automatic gearboxes have become very popular, due to all the advantages they offer… Do you want to know more? Keep on reading.
Advantages of the mechanical gearbox
Because there are still many more used manual gearboxes, it is easier to find a replacement if you do not want to buy a new one. Therefore, the buyer will have a wide range to choose from and the purchase is likely to be more economical.
Disadvantages of mechanical gearboxes
Mechanical gearboxes are prone to more breakdowns than automated and automatic gearboxes. Among the most common breakdowns we find the breakage of synchronizers.
The synchronizers are responsible for braking the shafts so that they do not wear out and break. This failure is a great danger, since it can cause that “the gear does not engage” or “a gear remains engaged” and cannot be removed. This could lead to more mechanical breakdowns and therefore a loss of safety for the driver and the truck driver.
Automated gearbox (also known as piloted or robotized):
The automated gearbox has a similar physical structure to the manual gearbox. However, it is controlled by a computer that makes gear changes possible without the driver’s intervention.
Automated gearboxes have an electro-pneumatic control unit that is responsible for carrying out the gear changes requested or programmed by the driver. This same control unit is responsible for clutch engagement and, therefore, there is no need to depress the clutch. As a curiosity, it should be noted that they do not have a clutch pedal, however, they do have an internal clutch managed by the electro-pneumatic control unit.
Advantages of the automated gearbox
What has it meant for a truck driver to switch from a manual to an automated gearbox? We have the answer: comfort and lightness.
Drivers no longer have to shift gears, so the truck shifts gears as needed, which makes driving easier and aids fuel management.
For example, when the truck is climbing a hill and is heavily loaded, it automatically downshifts one gear or even two gears at once. By not having to depress the clutch, the shifting time is reduced and therefore the truck does not miss a beat, it climbs with more power. This results in less strain on the engine and far fewer breakdowns than with manual gearboxes.
· Automatic gearbox:
A truck with an automatic gearbox adapts the gears by itself. Automatic gearboxes are usually hydraulic, with hydraulic disc packs that are mechanically governed by pressure. However, the most modern ones operate electronically.
Among the advantages of this type of gearbox we find, mainly, comfort. Drivers do not need to be aware of adapting the gear to the speed, since they use only the accelerator and the brake, without the clutch.
Advantages of the automatic gearbox
Automatic gearboxes offer greater driving comfort. In addition, they break down much less than mechanical gearboxes and are nowadays, due to their popularity, readily available.
Moreover, contrary to popular belief, automatic gearboxes are not more dangerous than mechanical ones, nor can they lose control going downhill. They adapt to the required speed, braking (or using the intarder) when going downhill. Moreover, even without a clutch pedal, the driver can reduce speed with the brake.
