Expanded 10-Speeds For Vocational Trucks

02 February 2016

Eaton has expanded coverage of its Fuller Advantage series automated overdrive transmissions for use in vocational applications. Initially launched in other applications in 2013, Fuller Advantage transmissions are now available with 110,000 lb. GCW capability, six- and eight-bolt PTO openings and operator features such as Hill Start Aid and intelligent gear selection logic.

Fuller Advantage automated overdrive transmissions can also be configured with optional Urge to Move, Creep Mode and Blended Pedal functionality for enhanced low-speed maneuverability in situations such as backing into a loading docks or maneuvering in a construction job site.

The transmissions also incorporate the company’s Precision Lubrication system, which is designed to reduce oil churn energy losses by nearly 33% over conventional units. As less heat is generated, it eliminates the need for transmission fluid coolers and corresponding lines and fittings. In addition, the system requires 16 pints of oil, nearly half the amount of typical transmissions. The result is less preventative maintenance is required while engine fans cycle less, further reducing horsepower demand, Eaton said.
