Eaton is announcing the X20 Challenge, encouraging the company’s customers to submit success stories highlighting where Eaton’s X20 portfolio of piston pumps have positively impacted a customer platform or application. One story will be chosen each quarter and will be featured in the company’s X20 portfolio advertising and social outreach campaign.

Richard Jacobs, president of the Hydraulics Business in Europe, Middle East and Africa, Eaton, says: “One of the most interesting things as an Eaton employee is hearing about how our customers are using these products around the world. Whether it’s a snow groomer in Europe, combines in Russia or concrete mixers in North America, our customers are applying the X20 portfolio in ways that we didn’t even imagine. And they’re saving money. With well over 100,000 units in the field today, we know our customers are putting X20 to work in many unique ways, solving unique problems and we are looking forward to hearing more.”

Customers are encouraged to take the X20 Challenge and submit their stories via the X20 Challenge website. Additional information about the Challenge – and the Hydraulics Business – can be found on the new @ETN_Hydraulics Twitter handle and the Eaton-Hydraulics/X20 LinkedIn showcase page. Challenge participants can get the latest news by following the hashtag #X20Challenge on Twitter.

The X20 portfolio represents Eaton’s most modern version of variable displacement piston pump technology that includes a 220, 420 and 620 displacement range. Since the 420 was launched in 2005, Eaton has sold thousands of pumps to OEMs in the agriculture, materials handling, commercial vehicle and construction markets.
