Roadranger Marketing has announced it now is offering its automated transmission extender protection plan to owner-operators in the United States and Canada. In addition to providing additional warranty after the original factory warranty runs out, the program includes the benefit of component upgrades.

Initially established for fleets, the automated transmission extender program allows truck owners to buy an additional year of automated transmission protection within line-haul applications for a maximum of 7 years or 850,000 miles.

“In addition to the added warranty period, the automated transmission extender program allows customers to immediately take advantage of the many component and software upgrades Eaton has made in the evolution of its automated transmission technologies,” says Rick Muth, Roadranger marketing manager for Lubricants and Extended Warranty. “It’s a great way to limit potential costly repairs and maintain or enhance the residual value of trucks. In addition to trucking professionals that operate their own business, beneficiaries of the program include fleets holding on to their trucks longer than their normal trade-in cycle and dealers with older Eaton automated transmissions in their used truck inventory.”

Additional benefits include the ability to sign up after standard warranty expiration, no late registration penalties and transferrable coverage to subsequent owners. All requests for coverage must be approved and pass an Eaton-certified inspection process.
