* Illinois - IC Bus first to offer new Eaton Transmission option

-- Trish Reed said IC Bus is excited to be the first brand in the school bus industry to offer its customers the option of the new Eaton's new dual-clutch, seven-speed Procision that was released last year... While the Procision is an option on the CE Series model starting later this year, the benefits of 8- to 10-percent improvement in fuel economy will result in "close parity" with the Allison 2000 Pupil Transportation Series. The data is based on Eaton testing... A feature called "Tap Down Shifting" provides drivers with more vehicle control at the brake pedal, and Procision is designed to offer drivers improved low-speed maneuverabilty in forward and reverse speeds... The transmission is designed to prevent rolling backward on 8-percent grades, based on grade and weight, and it allows for a controlled launch... The Procision will soon be offered as an option by other school bus manufacturers...
