5 VOCATIONAL TRANSMISSION NEWS Comparisons Maximizing Control With UltraShift PLUS ® The UltraShift PLUS ® V- and M-series transmissions provide maximum driver control for forward and reverse operations, whether on a steep grade or handling severe loads. Rounding out Eaton's transmission lineup beyond linehaul, both the Vocational and Performance series transmissions in the UltraShift PLUS family balance performance with fuel economy — must-haves for any vocational feet. Vocational Series The V-Series transmissions range from on- and off-road use to severe service and includes a larger range of forward and reverse speeds. Starting with the VAS transmission, it is best suited for many standard vocational applications such as fatbed trucks used in landscaping. Adding another reverse gear, the VCS 8LL is designed for feets needing fexible reverse for longer- distance backing and deep reduction. In other V-Series transmissions, the VMS 9ALL is best for construction sites, where low-speed maneuverability is required. The VHP, with 13 forward speeds, keeps on-highway fuel economy in mind while still being able to tackle moderate on- and off-road vocational demands. The most severe-duty transmission in Eaton's lineup is VXP, which can run against harsh off-road environments, steep grades and heavy loads. Performance Series Eaton's M-Series of UltraShift PLUS transmissions has 13 or 18 forward gears to give feets additional on- highway and linehaul options, while keeping severe performance requirements in mind. The MHP transmission, for example, is designed for on-highway feets hitting steep grades. The other M-Series transmission is the MXP, which allows feets to carry extreme loads on large grades and can be optimized for performance or fuel economy. Eaton Automation All Eaton UltraShift PLUS Vocational and Performance series transmissions include the latest automated shifting technology, "active shifting," which is a load-based feature allowing the clutch to actively open and close during a shift or remain connected to the fywheel. This feature is possible due to the Electronic Clutch Actuator, providing smooth and quick shifting — and allowing the driver to focus on the job, rather than the next gear. Other features include Hill Start Aid, a dual-plate ceramic clutch; creep mode; an oil-level sight glass for easier maintenance checks and other features such as engine overspeed protection.
