Mercedes Gearbox

Mercedes Gearbox

Mercedes in the lighter range of trucks now use mainly ZF gearboxes with the popular ZF S542 appearing in the 7.5-ton vehicle. As we move up through the vehicle range, Mercedes fit their own units with models such as the G56.6, G85.6, G100.12 and the heavier duty G210, G225, G235 and G240 . In the later vehicles all units are ECU controlled with many of the trucks now going to 2 pedal. All the Mercedes 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.
