LAS VEGAS … Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation launched a new brand of drivetrain components engineered specifically for the aftermarket at the 2011 Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW) conference. The new lineup, known as EverTough™, provides aftermarket customers with the optimum balance of price and performance to meet their replacement part needs. The initial EverTough component offering is a new line of heavy-duty clutches, which were also introduced at HDAW.
“The new EverTough components will complement Eaton’s industry leading production parts currently available in the aftermarket,” said John Beering, vice president and general manager of Eaton’s Clutch and Aftermarket business unit. “The pricing will be competitively positioned to allow our fleet and dealer customers the opportunity a carry a complete portfolio of Eaton’s new and aftermarket clutch products. And best of all, the EverTough brand will receive Roadranger sales and service support.”
To ensure the new EverTough clutches have reliability and durability at a competitive aftermarket price, Eaton has designed the clutch with an aftermarket-specific facing, a release system with standard dual zerk fittings, and dampeners to meet the torsional vibration needs of the aftermarket. In addition, lube intervals are set at 25,000 miles to reduce maintenance cost.
With torque ratings available up to 2,050 ft/lb, Eaton’s new EverTough clutches are available in both 14 and 15.5-inch heavy-duty designs for all makes of diesel-powered commercial trucks. Additionally, the clutches include a one year unlimited mileage warranty.
