Eaton has expanded coverage of its Fuller Advantage series of 10-speed automated overdrive transmissions to include use in more vocational applications.

Initially launched in other applications in 2013, the Fuller Advantage has now been configured with features designed to improve vehicle control for vocational use.

The transmissions can be spec’d with optional Urge to Move, Creep Mode, and Blended Pedal functionality for better low-speed maneuverability in situations such as backing into a loading dock or moving around a construction site.

Eaton says other benefits, compared to its UltraShift Plus automated manual, include reduced weight, increased efficiency, and lower maintenance costs.

The Fuller Advantage is ready for vocational duty with 110,000-lb GCW capability, 6- and 8-bolt PTO openings, and driver confidence features such as Hill Start Aid and intelligent gear-selection logic.
