Freightliner to offer Eaton’s Cobra shifter
Eaton says its Cobra style shifter is now available on select models of Freightliner vocational trucks equipped with Eaton UltraShift PLUS automated manual transmissions.
The Cobra shifter is an upgrade to the standard Eaton shifter designed to provide professional drivers with maximum comfort, ease of use and more efficient vehicle operation, the company says.
The Cobra Shifter is now available as an option through the Freightliner Corporate PDI / Custom Truck Services facilities on Freightliner’s vocational family of trucks, which includes the 108SD, 114SD and Coronado 122SD, Eaton says.
“Our Cobra shifter has become increasingly popular with Freightliner’s vocational customers,” says Michael Holahan, sales manager for Eaton. “It is the perfect complement to the 108SD, 114SD and 122SD chassis and has been requested by some Cascadia buyers.”
Eaton says additional features of the Cobra Shifter include a newly designed boot that completely seals and isolates the electronics package from cab spills, dust and other debris, and improved fiber optic lighting that allows drivers to quickly and easily glance at the gearing selections.
