Eaton Cummins Automated Transmission Technologies, joint venture between Eaton and Cummins, have published a new online selector tool to help users choose the optimal transmission from the company's portfolio.
Michael Garrison, lead applications engineer, Eaton’s Vehicle Group, said small to midsize fleets and dealership salespeople will benefit from the online selector, which he said eliminates much of the guess work when it comes to selecting the ideal transmission that best fits the user’s needs based on their particular requirements.
To guide customers to the ideal transmission choice, the online selector asks a series of questions, such as how the vehicle is used, its maximum gross weight rating, the type of terrain on which it will operate, and whether it will be used with a Power Takeoff (PTO) unit.
Based on the responses, the tool provides two transmission recommendations and a suggested axle ratio range.
Users can register for an account, which allows them to save their specifications, and generate a downloadable PDF file for reference and/or dealership consultation. Help is always available via a link on the tool homepage if the user requires assistance with definitions or examples. If the user has questions on transmission specifications, they are directed to a Roadranger representative.
