Eaton Corp. has published two new color brochures that outline the features and benefits of its new lineup of UltraShift Plus heavy-duty automated transmissions. Free printed copies or downloadable versions of the 22-page publications are available at

The new UltraShift Plus Brochure for Linehaul Applications (TRSL2505) – designed for over-the-road fleets, owner-operators and truck dealers – provides an overview of the UltraShift Plus Linehaul Active Shifting (LAS), Multipurpose High Performance (MHP) and Multipurpose Extreme Performance (MXP) automated transmissions. Information is provided on drivetrain integration, gear selection logic and low-speed maneuverability. Fuel economy, safety and lifecycle costs also are presented in the new brochure.

The new UltraShift Plus Brochure for Vocational Applications (TRSL2506) – designed for construction, concrete, heavy-haul and other vocational markets – provides an overview on the UltraShift Plus Vocational Construction Series (VCS), Vocational Multipurpose Series (VMS) and Vocational Extreme Performance (VXP) automated transmissions. While again covering drivetrain integration, gear selection logic and low-speed maneuverability features, the brochure also includes information on the cost and performance advantages of an automated transmission versus a torque converter automatic transmission.

Eaton says the new family of fully automated UltraShift Plus transmissions feature new automated clutch technology and intelligent shift selection software that employs grade sensing, weight computation and driver throttle commands to make intelligent shift decisions for efficient, safe and profitable vehicle performance.
