The company has developed the Easy Effort, a heavy-duty coil-spring clutch with nine springs, including six coil springs inside the casting with three assist springs, for higher torque engines.

The new line also includes the Soft Pedal diaphragm-style clutch, which features a lower bearing load and reduces pedal effort when compared to angle spring designed products.

"TRP offers clutches designed with minimal resistance to make shifting easy and less fatiguing over the course of a day of driving," said Everett Seymoure, global manager for TRP. "The Easy Effort and Soft Pedal both provide drivers smooth release and reduces pedal effort by 30 percent, making driving less strenuous."

TRP clutches for heavy-duty trucks are available in 14-inch and 15.5-inch versions. The 15.5-inch version of the Easy Effort clutch features a strap design for smooth transfer of energy. It also comes with a 5/8-inch socket adjuster, which allows technicians to quickly and simply adjust the clutch.

TRP also offers the Angle Spring Clutch, a more sensible option for older models. For medium-duty trucks, TRP has developed standard and stamped steel one-plate and two-plate clutches for single-disc and two-disc applications.

Standard TRP clutches are manufactured with ceramic facing friction material. Clutches made with Kevlar material are also available for vocational trucks, such as log haulers, refuse haulers, dump and cement trucks that frequently roll back and forth.

"TRP also provides a full range of clutch system components, such as clutch brakes, flywheel pilot bearings and flywheel and bell housing parts," Seymoure said.
