Performance You Can Count On

Vehicle control is vital on job sites. That’s why we engineer advanced features such as GearLogic™ technology, which improves low-speed performance, into our products. When it comes to grades, UltraShift PLUS transmissions offer superior performance compared to torque converter automatics. The Aggressive Performance calibration also improves acceleration through enhanced shift strategies. Enhanced split-shaft power take-off (PTO) capabilities allow the operator to control the throttle and transmission gear selection outside the vehicle’s cab for improved efficiency and safety.

Designed for Your Bottom Line

UltraShift PLUS transmissions are designed for optimal fuel efficiency, and less wear and tear on drivetrain components for reduced maintenance costs. Compared to a torque converter automatic, an UltraShift PLUS will cost you about 50% less. It will also double the length of lubricant change intervals and use 50% less fluid. Service can be performed at your local dealer to get your vehicle back on the job faster maximizing your uptime -- no need for a two-step repair process.

Get to know UltraShift PLUS

Fleet managers and drivers alike will appreciate the improved safety and greater fleet-wide fuel efficiency these automated transmissions deliver compared to their manual counterparts and torque converter automatics.
