Eaton enhances split shaft PTO for UltraShift Plus

Eaton said it has expanded the company’s lineup of UltraShift Plus automated transmissions for vocational applications through enhanced split shaft power take-off capabilities that allow for transmission gear selection and clutch control outside of a vehicle’s cab.

The company said that eliminating the need for operators to enter and exit the cab to change transmission gears helps enhance jobsite efficiency and reduce fatigue. Based on vehicle application and body builder design, the transmission also allows for the use of all transmission gear ratios for PTO minimum and maximum drive gears, according to Eaton.

The UltraShift Plus additions have been designed to increase the productivity of vehicles and operators in a variety of on/off-road vocations, including vehicles ticketed for mining operations, oilfield work, hydro excavating and trucks used in vacuum operations.
