Eaton offering manual trans for 12 liter NatGas engine

Eaton says its manual transmissions can now be ordered in Freightliner Cascadia trucks with Cummins Westport natural gas engines.

Eaton’s manual transmissions are an option with the ISX12 G natural gas engine, and will first be offered in Freightliner Cascadia day cabs, which will enter production in September.

“Our manual transmissions have proven to be perfectly suited for the Westport engines and represent an ideal balance between environmentally friendly and fuel efficiency for a wide variety of trucking applications,” said Michael Holahan, sales manager for Eaton. “We very much welcome this latest certification and look forward to much success with Freightliner and Westport.”
