Allison Automatics touch nearly all aspects of O&S costs starting with the reduction in operator training. This aspect of O&S costs has been cited as one of the primary factors that led the U.S. Army to specify automatic transmissions for wheeled
military vehicles starting in the early 1980s.
Owners of wheeled military vehicles also experience the same advantages seen by commercial Allison Automatic owners including: Outstanding reliability and durability due to robust design and construction, reduced vehicle damage due to superior vehicle
control and maneuverability, and reduced vehicle maintenance resulting from:
- Elimination of the need to adjust the clutch
- Reduced shift shocks to drivelines and axles
- Prognostics to enable condition-based maintenance
- Extended oil change intervals available with Allison TES 295® transmission fluid
Improved vehicle value created by reducing route time with rapid acceleration and full utilization of available engine power.
