    Default Application of DCT for agricultural tractors

    I am looking at the pros and cons of using Dual Clutch Transmission in Agricultural Tractors compared to CVTs.

    I assume you're talking about the transmissions that the computer swaps between two clutches so they are always in 2 gears at a time available to shift to. I think JD sell them right now? Pluses, should be simpler than an IVT or CVT, downside, the computer has to try and predict in auto mode as to what gear it should have ready to shift into. In manual pretty dead simple, faster shifting that a robotic gearbox like the MF dynas and cheaper gears than a traditional powershift box.
