ArvinMeritor Inc. announced Wednesday, April 29, that it has added two key product families to its growing aftermarket portfolio for commercial vehicles: remanufactured Allison automatic transmissions, and all-makes power steering gears and pumps. The new remanufactured transmissions will be sold under ArvinMeritor’s Mascot product brand and include Allison AT, MT, HT, 1000, 2000, 2400, 3000 and 4000 series automatics.
These models are operating on a wide range of vocational truck and bus applications where the expected service life of the vehicle is long but the operating demands on the transmission are high, the company says; the Mascot transmissions (both automatic and manual models) are remanufactured to the original equipment manufacturer’s exact engineering specifications, and the units are an exact fit, with no modifications necessary for installation.
ArvinMeritor says its new all-makes steering gears and pumps remanufacturing program includes more than 600 parts numbers from brands such as Vickers, Hoburn, Luk, Sheppard, Eaton, Saginaw, TRW and ZF; the steering gears and pumps are available for a wide range of commercial vehicles and applications, and include serial-number traceability and color-coded instructions to properly identify the installation method.
Doug Wolma, Commercial Vehicle Aftermarket general manager of remanufacturing for Troy, Mich.-based ArvinMeritor, says that remanufactured automatic transmissions and steering gears and pumps will meet the aftermarket customer’s growing needs for performance, service life and product support at a fraction of the cost of new component. “Remanufacturing also provides the environmental benefit of extending the productive life of a part that might otherwise be scrapped,” Wolma says.
ArvinMeritor says the remanufactured transmissions and steering gears and pumps are stocked and distributed through 25 Mascot Truck Parts facilities in Canada and the United States, allowing expedient delivery of quality products and service across North America.
