The transmission, commonly found in a range of different trucks in Australia, was designed for applications such as refuse collection, construction, fire and emergency, local distribution, and coach and motorhomes.

It has taken 24 years for the transmission to reach the half million mark, the first 4000 Series transmission dates back to 1993.

Today, the transmission is produced in both Indianapolis and Hungary.
