GALESBURG, Mich. — Eaton announced it is bringing to market a new A-Ratio UltraShift Plus automated transmission for extreme performance applications.
The new MXP (Multipurpose Extreme Performance) transmissions have lower overall numerical ratios and higher torque ratings, Eaton announced.
The ratios and even steps deliver better shift performance to improve grade shifting in hilly and mountainous conditions, the company says. It can handle unlimited payloads when designed into the appropriate driveline.
“These new A-Ratio transmissions are ideal for demanding applications such as those encountered on routes where steep grades are present and when vehicles are pulling extra heavy payloads,” said Ryan Trzybinski, product planning manager for Eaton.
Production begins this month.
