Eaton adds UltraShift HV park pawl option
Jul 1, 2008 12:00 PM
Eaton Corp's automated UltraShift HV (Highway Value) medium-duty transmissions are now available with a new park pawl option that simplifies driving and helps promote safe operation. When the park pawl is engaged, the device securely locks the transmission, and simultaneously the vehicle's drivetrain and driven wheels, to ensure that the vehicle remains stationary when parked.
The option creates a driving environment more like that in an automobile than a commercial truck. Accordingly, the park pawl option is only available for medium-duty applications for Class 6 vehicles with gross commercial weight (GCW) ratings up to 26,000 pounds.
The UltraShift HV models with the park pawl option require an OEM-supplied shifter that replaces the standard pushbutton shift console. They also feature the ability to engage the hold mode in any gear for continuous operation on a variety of grades.
