Eaton's UltraShift Plus automated transmissions complement the fuel-friendly features of the low torque diesel engines and include three UltraShift PLUS Vocational Construction Series (VCS) and three new Vocational Multipurpose Series (VMS) transmissions. The transmissions come in 10 and 11-speed configurations, with torque ratings of 1050 ft-lb, 1150 ft-lb and 1250 ft-lb. The transmissions come in overdrive and direct-drive models and feature self-adjusting electronic clutch actuation for fast, smooth engagements. Intelligent shift selection software employs grade sensing, weight computation and driver throttle commands to make shift decisions for efficient, safe and profitable vehicle performance, according to the company.
