Increased horsepower, faster acceleration, full power shifts, and superior maneuverability translate into more deliveries, reduced route times and more productivity, especially in high density start-stop duty cycles. The 3414 RHS is also the lightest transmission in the segment at up to 11% lighter than the next closest competitive product.

The 3414 RHS is a drop-in solution for any chassis with a current Allison 3000 Series option – with the same form, fit, and connections. The 3414 RHS includes Allison’s industry-leading warranty of five years, 750,000 miles, including towing, with no exclusions on individual components. With no clutches to replace, fleets will be free of unplanned downtime due to expensive clutch replacements often associated with AMTs.
