Alliance Parts announced a new product line for the heavy-duty truck market with the addition of EZ-Assist clutches. The company says the new clutches require 35 percent less pedal effort versus a standard angle spring clutch, improving operator comfort and reducing leg fatigue.
EZ-Assist clutches are available in three torque ratings from 1,400 to 1,850 lb.-ft. and are manufactured with new components. The clutches feature dampers designed for 2002 and older engines and fit all makes and models of commercial vehicles. The new clutches have a one-year unlimited-mile warranty and are available at more than 1,000 retail locations across the United States and Canada.
“Alliance EZ-Assist clutches provide a unique balance between performance and price,” says Todd Hooper, director of parts and service marketing for Daimler Trucks North America. “Alliance clutches are designed for trucks and owners needing a good quality clutch product at a price that makes sense. We are pleased to be able to offer a host of products that fill a real need and offer very good value for heavy-duty truck owners.”
