GALESBURG, Mich. — Eaton has launched a used truck program for the North American Classes 6-8 markets, which will offer extended warranty options of up to weight years and a million miles on transmissions.
Clutches will be covered for up to five years and 500,000 miles under the program.
The program features: a used truck Extended Protection Plan (EPP); factory remanufactured transmissions; clutches; Roadranger lube offerings; and, information on earlier generation Eaton automated transmissions. A series of customer training resources are also included in the program along with aftermarket offerings from Eaton, the company announced.
“Used truck registrations grew a little more than 9% in the first half of 2012, indicating demand within the secondary market is solid,” said Dave Karnes, director, Roadranger field sales and marketing, North American Truck. “Eaton products are well known for their durability, and these new extended protection plan offerings can give the used truck shopper added peace of mind when making their purchase decision.”
A study by ACT Research pegged the value of the used truck market in North America at nearly $12 billion. As more customers enter the secondary truck market, Eaton saw a need to provide extended warranty plans.
The program offers extended warranty protection on: Eaton manual and automated transmissions; transmissions with an Eaton heavy- or medium-duty clutch; and existing transmissions with a replacement clutch. All programs are offered as one-, two- or three-year warranties.
