Eaton reman clutches get higher torque ratings


EasyPedalEaton has added three new higher torque-rated clutches to its remanufactured clutch line in an effort to better support drivers of later model trucks.

Available as of Sept. 15 in torque ranges up to 2,050 ft.-lbs., the additions include two remanufactured Easy Pedal and one Solo design that may be specified for all makes and models of heavy-duty trucks in North American.

Ben Karrer,Eaton’s global product strategy manager, says the remanufactured clutches adhere to OEM specs and guidelines.

The Eaton Solo clutch features technology to keep the clutch in constant adjustment by continuously maintaining the release bearing position as the clutch wears. Eaton recommends the use of Solo self-adjusting clutches for all trucks with hydraulic release systems to reduce the risk of driveline damage. The Eaton Easy Pedal clutch utilizes a unique design to reduce pedal effort by as much as 50 percent to increase driver satisfaction and ease of operation, the company says.
