WARRENVILLE, Ill. — International is now offering the Eaton Fuller UltraShift automated transmission in 8600 and 9000i Series tractors.
The UltraShift transmission is Eaton’s first, fully automated, two-pedal transmission product. The UltraShift transmission offers fully automatic shifting with Eaton Fuller 10-speed transmission technology. The transmission features an automatic start with no clutch pedal and computer-controlled shifts at ideal engine speeds for improved fuel efficiency and performance.
"The trend is toward automatic shifting, as our customers look to reduce operating costs and driver recruitment costs. Today’s more diverse and less experienced drivers are increasingly favoring automated manual transmissions," said Jordan Feiger, vice-president and general manager, heavy vehicle center, International Truck and Engine Corporation.
"The aerodynamically efficient features of the 8000 and 9000i series combined with the Fuller UltraShift transmission work to deliver improved fuel efficiency for our mutual customers."
