RAMPTECH® Heavy Duty Shifter
Sage P/N 631001
Taking performance to a whole new gear.
A vast improvement on the OEM version shifter, the RAMPTECH® Heavy Duty Shifter delivers extraordinary reliability. Advanced design minimizes abrasion caused by sliding metal parts repeatedly rubbing together. Features include an innovative combination of a nylon coated shift lever and a specialized highly durable plastic shift gate designed for low friction to dramatically reduce wear. Plus, the synthetic rubber spring-like bushing withstands the most extreme environmental conditions while providing optimal UV protection. The result is a shifter that outperforms virtually all other OEM shifters. In addition, the Forward, Neutral, and Reverse are illuminated by an LED light for clear and easy visibility. A Cole-Hersee® electric safety neutral switch increases safe operation of the shifter.

Abrasive wear can be caused by friction between sliding metal parts repeatedly rubbing together. Over time, this friction cuts into the surface much like a sharp tool resulting in wear and breakdown of materials. For example, the steel shift lever and the steel shift gate of other shifters wear from rubbing together and causing the lever to break off during operation.
After extensive testing, the RAMPTECH® shifter outperformed the OEM shifter with a lower wear rate on the shift gate and steel shift lever. After undergoing 6,300 cycle testing on OEM and after-market brands and the RAMPTECH® shifter, it was observed that the RAMPTECH® shifter performed the best with a 3.1 x 10 ‑10 wear rate.
The combination of low friction, nylon-coated shift lever and specialized highly durable plastic shift gate reduced the wear between the two sliding components allowing the RAMPTECH® shifter to outperform with less wear over all other brands. Most importantly, the RAMPTECH® shifter utilizes a synthetic rubber spring-like bushing for extreme environmental conditions and UV resistance. The spring-like bushing allows the lever to snap in and out of the neutral position while keeping the lever safely locked in forward or reverse when needed.
