Increase Productivity White navigation arrow

  • Allison’s Continuous Power Technology™ provides more power to the wheels than other transmission technologies. Your trucks will accelerate faster and run at higher average speeds, allowing them to make more runs per day. Allison Automatics are also designed to carry more tonnage per gallon or liter of fuel, which, combined with our higher average speeds, can greatly increase your operation’s productivity.

Increased Uptime White navigation arrow

  • The gravel roads, loose soil, mud and steep grades found at mining operations put enormous strain on transmissions. These conditions make transmissions more susceptible to driver abuse. An Allison Automatic has no mechanical clutch, so downtime is rarely a concern. The only preventative maintenance consists of routine oil and filter changes, which can be monitored using prognostics.

Better Fuel Economy White navigation arrow

  • Allison transmissions automatically adjust shift points to improve fuel economy. When the truck bed is empty, the transmission shifts at lower engine speeds, which consumes less fuel. When carrying a full load, the transmission adjusts to shift at higher speeds to provide more power.
  • Our innovative transmissions also manage downshifting to provide the hydraulic retarder with the capacity to maintain downhill speed while reducing service brake usage. Additionally, Allison Automatics give drivers a choice of operating modes to best suit driving conditions.

Shift Smoothly White navigation arrow

  • Thanks to Allison’s patented torque converter design, you will enjoy power shifts with full torque. An Allison fully automatic transmission doesn’t lose power when it shifts, resulting in a smoother transition between gears. In addition, an Allison transmission allows you to downshift on any grade and any surface, depending on the wheel power needed. Allison also gives you extra shifting flexibility with the 5000, 6000, 8000 and 9000 Series™ controls.

Increase Your Driver Pool White navigation arrow

  • When behind the wheel of a truck with an Allison Automatic, drivers don’t have to constantly think about shifting. The transmission takes care of much of the shifting on its own. This reduces distractions and allows drivers to keep their eyes on the road. With Allison transmissions, drivers are more in tune with the truck, increasing both their control and comfort. Even experienced drivers appreciate the simplicity, responsiveness, control and maneuverability an Allison fully automatic transmission gives them. All of this means a larger pool of drivers to draw from and increased driver retention for your mining operation.
