GALESBURG, Mich. — Power management company Eaton has added three new higher torque-rated clutches to its aftermarket portfolio of remanufactured clutches to better support the owners and operators of later model trucks.
Available starting on September 15, in torque ranges up to 2,050 ft.-lbs., the additions include two remanufactured Easy Pedal and one Solo design that may be specified for all makes and models of heavy-duty trucks in North America, according to Ben Karrer, global product strategy manager.
“Owners of older vehicles now have a new and better solution for replacing their clutches,” Karrer said. “Like all Eaton clutches, new or replacement, these remanufactured clutches strictly adhere to the spec's and guidelines of all original equipment manufacturers to ensure longer life and trouble-free operation. It is an ideal opportunity for anyone purchasing their second, third or fourth clutch.”
The Eaton Solo clutch features technology to keep the clutch in constant adjustment by continuously maintaining the release bearing position as the clutch wears.
Karrer said Eaton recommends the use of Solo self-adjusting clutches for all trucks with hydraulic release systems to reduce the risk of driveline damage.
The Eaton Easy Pedal clutch utilizes a unique design to reduce pedal effort by as much as 50 percent to increase driver satisfaction and ease of operation.
Eaton clutches are the number one selling commercial vehicle clutch in North America, and remanufactured clutches are warranted for one year/unlimited miles.
Eaton Commercial Vehicle components are backed by Eaton’s Roadranger network of more than 180 drivetrain professionals who provide solutions, support and expertise to fleets and dealers. For more information visit www.eaton.com/roadranger.
