Eaton Corp. has announced that the UltraShift Highway Value (HV) is now available as a data book option for Ford F650 Super Duty and Ford F750 Super Duty series trucks.
Designed for Class 6 and 7 vehicles with diesel engines between 195 and 260 hp, the UltraShift HV is capable of handling torque capacities up to 660 lbs. per ft. and loads up to 33,000 lbs. gross vehicle weight (GVW), and is suitable for applications such as P&D, service, utility and recovery, the company said.
According to Eaton, independent tests conducted in accordance with SAE J1526 Joint TMC/SAE Fuel Consumption In-Service Test Procedure, Type III showed the transmission delivers better fuel efficiency in a variety of duty cycles than a conventional automatic transmission.
“With this latest agreement with Ford, we continue to expand the availability of our medium-duty transmissions,” said Dontia M. Warren, medium-duty market development manager for Eaton’s Truck business. “More and more original equipment manufacturers are selecting the UltraShift HV so they can pass along to their customers the fuel-saving features of an automated transmission.”
