Favot Selects Allison Fully Automatic Transmissions to Equip Its MAC 3028 Sprayers

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina, September 2021 - Allison Transmission, a leading designer and manufacturer of conventional and electrified vehicle propulsion solutions and the largest global manufacturer of medium- and heavy-duty fully automatic transmissions for commercial and defense vehicles, announces that FAVOT company has decided to mount the first prototype Mac 3028, with an Allison 2500 series transmission.

Allison has worked alongside the Argentine agricultural sector for more than 5 years. The agribusiness sector has undergone profound product transformations in recent decades and Allison has always accompanied these changes. Since 1930, Favot has been and is at the forefront of new market trends. And now Allison has succeeded in having Favot choose Allison fully automatic transmissions for their products.

"The reason we made this important decision is due to the change of end-user preference that is happening in the local market, where sprayers with manual gearboxes are no longer a trend and the interest in self-propelled sprayers equipped with fully automatic transmissions is growing. Our users are requesting the option of equipment with Allison transmissions," said Eduardo Favot, owner of Favot.

Allison transmissions bring great value to producers, allowing them to do their job using shorter operating times in spraying and fertilizing, with greater maneuverability, comfort and low maintenance costs providing greater operator reliability.

Agricultural sprayers benefit from the use of Allison's fully automatic transmissions and are ideal for moving through a wide variety of soils, which can range from firm and dusty to muddy, very wet and soft. Allison transmissions are adjusted for weight, speed and ground conditions, as required by the machinery. Whether you’re spreading or spraying, time is critical. You can’t afford downtime with your machinery.

Allison fully automatic transmissions are built to exacting standards to perform under the most rigorous conditions. They require a minimal amount of service because the patented torque converter technology doesn’t wear like other transmission technologies with a starting clutch and extends periods between maintenance. This lowers maintenance and repair costs and increases your vehicle’s time in the field.

The Favot company is now migrating from manual transmission sprayers to fully automatic transmission sprayers, following market trends and end-user demand.
