LAS VEGAS — Eaton Corp. has launched a new brand of aftermarket-specific drivetrain components. The new lineup of EverTough products, which were introduced at the 2011 Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW) conference here, have been engineered specifically for the aftermarket to provide customers with the optimum balance of price and performance to meet their replacement part needs.
The initial EverTough component offering is a new line of heavy-duty clutches, which were also introduced at HDAW.
“All of the new EverTough brand components will complement Eaton’s industry leading production parts that are currently available in the aftermarket,” said John Beering, Vice President and General Manager Clutch and Aftermarket business for Eaton. “The pricing will be competitively positioned to allow our fleet and dealer customers the opportunity a carry a complete portfolio of new and aftermarket Eaton clutch products. And best of all for our customers, the EverTough brand will also receive the same Roadranger sales and service support that is already widely viewed as best in trucking.”
To ensure the new EverTough clutches have reliability and durability at a competitive aftermarket price, Eaton has designed the clutch with an aftermarket-specific facing, a release system with standard dual zerk fittings, and dampeners to meet the torsional vibration needs of the aftermarket. Lube intervals are set at 25,000 miles.
With torque ratings available up to 2050 ft/lb, the new EverTough clutches are available in both 14 and 15.5-inch heavy-duty designs for all makes of diesel-powered commercial trucks in North America. All of the clutches include a 1 year/unlimited mileage warranty.
