A Change of Thought?

Most people now understand that it doesn’t matter what we drive, we all have the right to choose who repairs our ride. Whilst for some makes and models the right to repair will be a hard-fought battle at the highest levels, for many vehicles, it's simply a case of reminding people to “think out of the box”.

Most people now understand that it doesn’t matter what we drive, we all have the right to choose who repairs our ride. Having started out as an education for the daily driver, the “Right to Repair” campaign continues to roll and is now challenging the status quo in #off-highway machinery markets as well. Whilst for some makes and models the right to repair will be a hard-fought battle at the highest levels, for many vehicles, it’s simply a case of reminding people to “think out of the box”. 

 

“People are regularly surprised to hear that Driveline offers parts and rebuild services for telehandlers, cranes and material handling machines”, says Brett Dorrstein, Branch Manager, Driveline Services Australia Melbourne. “They’ve never really stopped to think about it. They’ve always just done the OEM thing. We get the call when the OEM can’t help, can’t help quick enough, or are too expensive and so they need another option”, he adds.

 

With many materials handling machines running Dana or Kessler powershift transmissions, converters, transfers and axles, Driveline’s agency and direct factory access to these and other marques enables them to provide an alternate supply channel for these parts. “Driveline is more nimble than many OEMs, so we can often get things moving quicker, and we appear to be better priced than the OEMs”, says Dorrstein.

 

Contact your local Driveline Services Australia branch to discuss how they can assist your material handling fleet with parts and rebuild services.

Sum of Parts

When the first vehicles rolled off the assembly line, they were made top to bottom by the manufacturer, the same brand all the way through. But as original equipment manufacturers continue to specialise, corporations diversify and the world grows ever smaller, today’s machines are delivered with a brand on the front that rarely matches that on the engine, transmission, driveshaft and other parts. Which, when it comes time to rebuild or repair, can send you hunting across the world.
