Eaton extends manual transmission, clutch warranties

Eaton has increased the warranty coverage for the Eaton RTLO 13-speed or 18-speed transmission, as well as the Solo Advantage clutch and Eaton-approved lubrication. Customers who spec these items will now receive a seven-year/750,000-mile warranty on the transmission and five-year/500,000-mile warranty on the clutch.

The program will remain in effect until June 30, 2017, for all makes and models of new trucks purchased in the U.S. and Canada.

“Our rugged manual transmissions have been the trucking industry standard for years,” said David Karnes, vice president of commercial vehicle sales in North America for Eaton. “That robust design, coupled with the one of industry’s best clutches and lube offerings, has allowed us to provide our customers with these free warranty extensions.”
