School Bus

When you manage and drive school buses, safety is the top priority. With kids and traffic to deal with, worrying about transmission performance is last on the list. The all-new Procision dual-clutch automatic transmission makes it easy with great low-speed maneuverability, fuel economy and more.

Here are the top reasons drivers and transportation directors will appreciate Procision:

Safety

Our advanced technologies are safety first.

  • Creep mode- allows controlled, low-speed maneuverability to give drivers and parents peace of mind
  • Hill Helper- prevents roll back or forward for up to 3 seconds, based on grade and vehicle weight, for a controlled and safe launch
  • Tap Down Shifting- this brake-pedal actuated feature downshifts on grades or in other conditions without the driver removing hands form the wheel or eyes from the road
  • Low engine noise, so drivers can focus on the job at hand
  • Shuttle shifting – allows shifting from Drive to Reverse and vice versa without coming to a complete stop, eliminating shift interlock situations

Reliability

Performance you can count on.

  • Eaton brings a proven reputation of reliable commercial vehicle transmissions to the school bus industry
  • 100 truck years of reliability testing utilizing a variety of vocations and duty cycles
  • 5-year/unlimited mile warranty
  • Industry-longest 7-year extended protection plan for additional peace of mind

Comfort

The latest technology for an easier ride

  • Dual-clutch technology preselects the correct gear for smooth delivery of power – just like the torque converter automatic that drivers are used to
  • Engineered and tested to excel and be reliable in extreme environments
  • Exceptionally smooth shifting with shift points that can be customized to your fleet for optimum fuel economy and comfort
  • Engine noise is reduced because gear changes occur at lower rpm
  • Zero learning curve for drivers accustomed to a torque-converter automatic

Cost of Ownership

Value for the district.

  • 8% to 10% better fuel economy than a torque converter automatic.
  • 7-speeds with a double overdrive for additional fuel economy.
  • Eaton Dynamic Shifting uses grade, vehicle weight and driver demand to select optimum shift points for balance of economy and performance.
  • New Eaton synthetic transmission fluid enables 150,000 mile lube & filter changes for reduced maintenance costs.

Serviceability
