Eaton Cummins Automated Transmission Technologies next year will expanded its Endurant automated transmission lineup with a new offering for heavyweight operations, the company announced Tuesday.
The Endurant XD series has 18 forward speeds and up to six reverse gears, and features provisions for bottom 8-bolt and rear 4-bolt high-capacity power take-offs. A transmission oil cooler provision is available when required. Optimized software, the company says, makes “smart shift decisions.”
Designed for on-highway applications with high gross combined weight ratings, like double and triple trailer trucks, and severe-duty on/off highway applications, like dump and logging trucks, the Endurant XD series has torque and horsepower capacity to cover all Class 8 North American engines, including the Cummins X15.
Charles Masters, general manager, Eaton Cummins Automated Transmission Technologies, said the Endurant XD series is currently undergoing extensive testing, which puts the transmission through extreme conditions.
