MAN Gearbox

MAN over the last few years have come over wholly to fitting the ZF Gearbox on the O.E production line. Earlier models were fitted with the Eaton Product. ZF gearboxes now used include the ZF 6S850, S542, 16S151 and the ZF 16S181. The latest range of MAN vehicles now use the ZF Ecolite, ZF AS-Tronic series and the new ZF Traxon Manual automated transmissions which takes the cab to a 2 pedal operation. We carry on stock the Wabco Power Pack fitted to the ZF Ecolite Transmission and the Wabco GS3 units fitted to the AS Tronic transmissions these would be supplied with a base programme installed or if we have your unit here and it can be diagnosed, we can fully programme to the latest software. All the DAF gearboxes supplied or reconditioned by us are put through their paces in our dyno test facility ensuring trouble free installation and operation. All gearboxes are supplied with a full 12-month warranty both parts and labour.


MAN Differential

MAN for some years have worked with the EATON axle in many of their vehicles and then in the later years have switched to their own series of drivehead where all part numbers are pre-fixed by HY (e.g. HY1175) Their units are both non-hub reduction and normal spiral bevel encompassing both single and tandem dive axles. Our Differential workshops are fitted out with the latest equipment ensuring all our differentials are built to exacting standards and specifications.


MAN Power Steering

Power steering has been amongst our product range for a number of years where we offer all popular ZF and TRW steering boxes that are fitted throughout the entire MAN series of vehicles. Being a safety critical product, our Power Steering department is equipped with the latest dyno test facility allowing us to fully test all units to O.E specification ensuring trouble free installation and safe operation.


MAN Propshaft

To complete the range of drivetrain equipment, we stock all makes of Propshafts to suit all MAN current production and to complement this we hold all universal joints and centre support bearings. Our Propshaft department is fully equipped with auto weld and balancing machines ensuring all units give trouble free service.
