Eaton has increased the horsepower and Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) ratings for its line of medium-duty Procision seven-speed transmissions. The new ratings were added to expand market coverage to a broader range of potential customers and to increase compatibility with additional diesel engines, the company said. Horsepower ratings have been increased from 260 HP to 300 HP, with maximum GVW ratings increased to 35,000 lbs. on air brake-equipped vehicles and 33,000 lbs. on Park Pawl-equipped vehicles.
“By extending the horsepower and GVW ratings on Procision, Eaton is providing more customers with the opportunity to spec this transmission to help them achieve better fuel economy and improve driver confidence across applications,” said Jeff Walker, product director of heavy-duty/medium-duty/hybrid transmissions for Eaton’s vehicle group. “Fleets that have specified and are running Procision today have seen the benefits, and today’s announcement broadens the range of applications for Procision.”
