Penske Power Systems believes Allison transmissions are a great fit in emergency response vehicles and will use next week’s AFAC expo to highlight those advantages.

AFAC (Australasian Fire and Emergency Service Authorities Council) 2017 will be held in Sydney from the 4th to the 6th of September.

On display at the Penske Power Systems stand will be a 2500 series cutaway Allison transmission.

Penske Power Systems National Sales Manager – Allison Transmission, Daniel Raine, says the AFAC event is a great chance to show the benefits an Allison transmission can bring to an emergency response vehicle.

“In those critical moments of responding to emergency events, end customers can rely on robust Allison transmissions which generally increase acceleration of trucks compared to manual transmissions.

“Removing the optimal gear selection decision-making process for drivers also yields improved fuel efficiency, reduced wear on componentry and easier operation of trucks.

“Offering not only cost savings but also reliability is key to what end customers need in the emergency services industry.”

Penske Power Systems offers Allison transmissions to purchasers of trucks from brands including Fuso, Isuzu, Hino, UD, Volvo, Mack, Iveco and Mercedes-Benz.

“Exhibiting at AFAC17 enables us to support our OEM partners and their end customers.”
