Roadranger Marketing it is now offering its automated manual transmission (AMT) “extender protection” plan for Eaton AMTs to owner-operators in the U.S. and Canada. Along with providing additional warranty after the original factory warranty expires, this program includes numerous component upgrades. Made available first to fleets, the AMT extender program, said Roadranger, allows truck owners to buy an additional year of automated transmission protection within linehaul applications for a maximum of 7 years or 850,000 miles..
“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 & Extended Warranty. “It’s a great way to limit potential costly repairs and maintain or enhance the residual value of trucks. [Other] 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.”
Still other benefits include the ability to sign up after standard warranty expiration, no late registration penalties, and this coverage is transferrable to subsequent owners.
According to Roadranger, this program is available for linehaul applications only and there is no minimum number of trucks to qualify. The coverage begins at the point of registration and is available at all OEM truck dealers that sell and service linehaul trucks equipped with Eaton AutoShift and UltraShift transmissions. All requests for coverage must be approved and pass an Eaton-certified inspection process.
