What brands are used in your off-highway machine?
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.
As Australia’s largest independently owned and operated underbody and power transmission specialists, Driveline Services Australia is an authorised agent, distributor and rebuilder for the world’s leading axle and transmission brands, including Dana, Kessler, Carraro, Spicer and GKN.
Driveline’s direct factory access for parts and technical information, plus our factory-trained rebuilders help Driveline diagnose and repair drivetrain faults quickly, easily and economically.
This is a substantial benefit realised by a growing list of off-highway fleet operators, particularly as the world has shut its doors due to COVID-19. As Driveline’s Operations Manager, Craig Dorrstein, noted, “The local and international border restrictions from COVID have made it hard for some sites to find the parts and services to keep their fleet running. Our experience, stock and international procurement channels have helped Driveline provide lead-times and pricing that have meant minimal downtime for them, which in some cases, costs more than the repair itself”.
