Eaton has made several changes to its Flex Reman transmission line, including a new parts numbering system and price structure.
Eaton has switched to a model-based part number system, eliminating the need to cross reference part numbers with model numbers, Eaton said.
In addition, a new pricing structure has been introduced for Flex products with logistic center, direct ship and truck-down orders all priced the same. Availability and delivery changes have been made as well.
All Flex units now are eligible to ship the same day or next day for truck down situations and increased inventories of Flex units have been added to Eaton’s 14 logistic centers resulting in shorter lead times.
Also, Eaton has changed the model line-up of transmissions available in the Flex Reman line-up. The company said the changes increased the Flex transmission coverage from 75 to 82% of market demand and now covers 50 standard reman items.
“Eaton recently surveyed multiple dealers and OEMs to ask them what we can do to make it easier to do business with us in the aftermarket,” said Jeremy Novak, marketing manager, remanufacturing for Eaton. “These changes reflect that input, and we look forward to assisting our customers with increasing their sales and profitability when working with Eaton.”
Flex transmissions are now available on the most popular of Eaton’s transmissions including the FR 10-speed and RTLO 13- and 18-speed models. All are made with 100% genuine Eaton components and carry a two-year/unlimited miles base warranty. Extended protection plans are also available.
