Automated Transmissions

How one fleet has found maintenance savings by automating shifting

CTS’ Whyte attributes that to the fact that the drivers cannot be too aggressive when operating an automated transmission. “The transmission helps slow them down.

“It’s a win/win situation for us and for the customer. The reduced maintenance and reliability of the Eaton transmissions has undeniably helped improve our vehicle operating costs.

“The transmissions are definitely going to show savings,” he continues. “Plus, the reliability of the equipment is going to benefit Two Amigos. The trucks are going to be working instead of in the shop.”

Prociuk and Whyte concur that the decision to make the switch to Eaton automation was “a wise one.”
