Gearbox for Reinforced Concrete Wall Saw

Product for a world renowned company in the field of sawing, grinding, cutting and drilling. Amongst other machines, they produce wall saws for cutting reinforced concrete.
Using big saw blades, cuts can be done through up to 50cm thick ferroconcrete. Suter Racing has developed for such a machine a gearbox with 4 gears, allowing the maximum power to be used with different diameter saw blades. 
The requirements for the gearbox were extreme:
An 18kW electric engine driving the gears at 10000 rpm which has to be reduced in 4 steps down to 1100 to 2400 rpm; the max. torque being 175Nm. SRT developed a gearbox which thanks to a revolutionary shifter mechanism allowed an extremely compact construction.
