Eaton to Provide Navistar’s Heavy-Duty Remanufactured Transmissions
July 17, 2014
Eaton has been selected by Navistar as the truck maker’s new supplier of heavy-duty remanufactured transmissions.
The majority of the deliveries, which started July 1, to Navistar’s roughly 350 North American dealers will be Eaton Flex Reman transmissions.
The Flex Reman transmissions ticketed for Navistar will include a customized design with shift bars in a forward configuration on the housings. Ten part numbers will be available with this design.
“This new agreement with Navistar promises to bring a wealth of benefits to our mutual fleet and independent trucker customers,” said Shane Groner, global account director, Navistar, Eaton commercial vehicle group. “We are continuously enhancing our Flex Reman lineup of transmissions and we’re happy to see that the industry as a whole and Navistar specifically are supporting these improvements in a big way.”
Eaton recently added several new enhancements to its Flex products, including a new pricing structure with logistic center, direct ship and truck-down orders all priced the same. Delivery changes and 24-hour availability have also been added, and recent additions to the Flex lineup now brings Eaton’s coverage to more than 50 part numbers that cover up to 80% of industry demand, according to Eaton.
Standard warranty coverage for Flex Reman transmissions is two years/unlimited miles, but can be extended.
Eaton said in addition to the exclusive use of genuine OEM-quality parts, all its heavy-duty remanufactured transmissions have roughly 20% more new parts than most other remanufactured transmissions and all units are performance tested to ensure Eaton standards and specifications are met.
The transmissions are backed by the Roadranger network, which includes more than 200 drivetrain professionals throughout North America.
