U.S. Xpress, the second largest privately owned truckload carrier in the United States, has been testing the Allison TC10® transmission in its fleet and is extremely impressed with the results.
“We were approached by Allison to see if we would be interested in testing the TC10 in the dedicated fleet,” said Bobby Allen, maintenance director for U.S. Xpress.
Allen goes on to describe how the TC10 stood up to the rigors of the road. “The one we ran for 500,000 miles had absolutely no maintenance issues whatsoever. The disc plates had plenty of wear left in them. All the seals looked good. It just looked like a fairly new transmission instead of one with half a million miles on it,” said Allen.
According to Gerry Mead, senior vice president at U.S. Xpress, “Allison has been a great partner. They know we’re very demanding and want the right product. They listen and take that info back and that’s what the partnership is all about.”
