The HCC-200 Freewheeling valve is an innovation to manage the auxiliary drive on agricultural harvesters. This valve enables energy savings due to reduced pressure losses and an innovative control method. It provides comfort for the driver and reduces risks of external oil leakage, resulting in a low risk of environmental pollution. Improved control also reduces loads on other components in a system. 

Congratulation to the team who participated: Jernej Bradeško, Mufid Bešić, Matej Erznožnik, Boris Novak and Anže Čelik.
