Eaton Cummins Automated Transmission Technologies has expanded its Endurant automated transmission portfolio to include a new dual power take-off (PTO) version of the 12-speed model.
The new dual PTO option of Endurant provides customers with two PTO mounting locations: an eight-bolt bottom mount and a four-bolt rear mount with a combined 95 hp capability. A single PTO model with an eight-bolt bottom mount location also is available, giving fleets enhanced flexibility in the secondary market.
Since the launch of the 12-speed overdrive model in late 2017, the Endurant portfolio has expanded to include an 11-speed direct-drive model with calibrations optimized to meet the needs of linehaul and regional fleets typically operating at lower cruise speeds and on flatter terrain. Having overdrive and direct-drive models gives fleet managers the choice to select the best ratio for their application and route, the company said.
All Endurant transmissions have a variety of features designed to reduce maintenance and increase uptime:
• Internal electrical system routing that minimizes exposure and corrosion to wires andconnectors for improved reliability.
• A smart prognostics feature provides clutch replacement notification to better planmaintenance scheduling.
• A transmission fluid pressure sensor that notifies drivers of low oil levels toprovide burn-up warranty coverage;
• Smooth shift strategies that enhance the operator’s driving experience.
• Predictive shifting using look-ahead technology to execute shift decisions that improvefuel efficiency and provide additional driver comfort.
• A maintenance-free 430 mm self-adjust clutch that requires no grease.
• A 750,000-mile lube change interval in linehaul applications.
