The New Scania

Opticruise gearbox

Scania’s new Opticruise G33CM gearbox features improved and speedy gearshifting in combination with better fuel consumption and excellent comfort. After six years of development and testing, we are introducing a gearbox with plenty of new technologies, such as variable oil volume, improved gear lubrication by oil spray function and a wider gear spread.

Thanks to significantly reduced internal losses, and thereby improved energy efficiency, the G33CM itself offers fuel savings of one percent. The weight has been reduced by 60 kg to be used for increased payload. Additionally, it provides higher uptime with an oil change interval of up to one million km. All this to ensure that your total operating economy is optimised. 

Scania opticruise gearbox

DRIVEABILITY - Better driveability is achieved with a wider gear ratio spread, which includes super crawler and overdrive, that match Scania’s low rev engine philosophy.

REVERSING - Instead of a reversing gear, a planetary gear is used for reversing. This solution enables having eight gears for going in reverse at speeds up to 30 km/h. (This is useful when, for instance, tipper trucks need to reverse for long distances.)

RETARDER - The retarder on the G33CM has also been updated and improved and can now deliver 4700 Nm torque at a propeller shaft speed below 600 rpm.

PTO - With the Scania Opticruise gearbox, a new PTO programme with nine different performance steps is introduced. Higher torque and gear ratio improves the overall performance of bodywork equipment. Lower noise levels and reduced fuel consumption is the result of higher gear ratio, which allows lower engine speeds.

The new Scania Opticruise gearbox G33CM is available for all V8 engines up to 660 hp as well as the high-out­put 13-litre 500 and 540 hp engines.

Information about the gearbox for the 770 hp V8 can be found under Specification on the Our range pages.
