Salient features of dual clutch
Only one clutch pedal is needed to operate both the main transmission (to drive the tractor) and the power take-off drive (to drive the ‘Implement’); Single ‘Release bearing Assembly’ and also less number of mating parts in the vehicle which is also cheaper; and lower weight of the clutch assembly than the double clutch.
Main transmission disc assembly can be replaced easily without disturbing cover assembly ( replacement of the same which is frequent than PTO Disc); While replacing the main transmission disc, no sophisticated set-height adjustment facility is required as the cover assembly can be intact and it can be done by even less skilled technicians relatively faster and with less chances of wrong setup and associated impact.
Dual clutch allows smoother operation of external power takeoff which operates the Implements; the operator can change gears without affecting the operation of the drive to the same implement.; the momentum of the attached implement does not affect the operation of the tractor; it is robust as it can take abuse better as the main disc assembly is in direct contact with engine flywheel , which also helps faster heat dissipation.
