Allison Automatics
The Allison Rugged Duty Series fully automatic transmission line is rated for engines from 165 to 600 HP and 420 to 1,850 pounds per feet of torque.

Features of the Rugged Duty Series include load-based shift scheduling that automatically selects between economy and performance shift schedules based on the vehicle’s actual payload and the grade on which it is operating. Allison prognostics are in place on the gearboxes to monitor oil life, filter life and transmission health. Shift energy management/low range torque protection provides better engine/transmission integration that leads to faster, smoother, more consistent shift quality, increased powertrain durability and improved performance.

The Allison Rugged Duty Series is equipped with a standard continuous operation power takeoff provision. The 1000/2000 models offer turbine drive openings in the 3 and 9 o’clock positions. The 3000/4000 models offer engine-driven PTOs. The 3000 openings are side/side in the 4 and 8 o’clock positions and top/side in the 1 and 8 o’clock positions. The 4000 model openings are in the 1 and 8 o’clock positions.

Allison’s new 2nd Reverse offers a second “deep reverse” in addition to the standard reverse for a variety of applications using 4700 RDS models. Visit www.allisontransmission.com.
