Eaton brought its lineup of Flex Reman transmissions into the Canadian marketplace for the first time as of Jan. 1, 2017, the company has announced.
Canadian OEM dealers will be able to offer two tiers of Eaton Factory Reman products – the standard remanufactured transmissions with clutch housings and Flex Reman transmissions with no clutch housings.
The Flex line also includes a shipping cover and gasket that allows dealers to reuse existing housings to increase inventory flexibility for stocking and servicing a range of North American heavy-duty vehicles. The 18 Flex part numbers make up around 90% of the replacement transmission models sold in Canada, according to Eaton.
“Flex eliminates the need to stock the entire portfolio of Eaton replacement transmissions yet still allows participants to maintain a healthy inventory with a wide range of available torque ratings for multiple trucking applications,” said Bill Fouch, manager, aftermarket marketing, Eaton. “Fleets also benefit from the Flex program’s competitive pricing and enhanced access to the many models that are available through the program.”
Same day and next day shipments will take place from Eaton distribution centers in Airdrie, Alberta; Moncton, New Brunswick; and Ottawa and Brampton, Ontario.
Flex transmissions feature a standard warranty in Canada, providing nationwide coverage of two years/ unlimited mileage. The warranty can be extended to three years/ unlimited mileage with the purchase and installation of a Genuine Eaton clutch and Eaton-approved lubricant under the Eaton Bundled Warranty program.
