Eaton introduces its UltraShift PLUS MXP transmission for off-highway applications. Product features include 18 forward speeds, 700 hp (522 kW) maximum, 2250 lb·ft (3050 N·m) maximum torque, and no maximum gross combination weight when all application guide requirements are met. The robust, fully automated transmission delivers improved fuel economy and uses an electronic clutch actuator to provide faster shifting and smooth engagement. Intelligent shift selection software uses changes in grade, weight, and throttle to calculate the most efficient and effective shift points. UltraShift PLUS MXP fully engages the clutch at idle, giving the driver control in challenging conditions. The intuitive driver interface offers button shifting in drive, reverse, manual, and low modes.
