GALESBURG, Mich. — Roadranger Marketing is now offering an extended protection plan for its automated transmissions to owner/operators.
The company says the new extended protection plan for owner/operators provides protection after the original factory warranty has run out. Customers can purchase an extra year of protection for linehaul applications, bringing the warranty to a maximum of seven years or 850,000 miles. The plan is available both in the US and Canada.
“In addition to the added warranty period, the automated transmission extender program allows customers to immediately take advantage of the many component and software upgrades Eaton has made in the evolution of its automated transmission technologies,” said Rick Muth, Roadranger Marketing manager for lubricants and extended warranty. “It’s a great way to limit potential costly repairs and maintain or enhance the residual value of trucks. In addition to trucking professionals that operate their own business, beneficiaries of the program include fleets holding on to their trucks longer than their normal trade-in cycle and dealers with older Eaton automated transmissions in their used truck inventory.” The program was initially developed for fleets and is available for customers in linehaul applications only. The coverage begins at the point of registration and is transferrable to subsequent owners. It covers the Eaton AutoShift and UltraShift transmissions.
