PACCAR Genuine Drive Shafts
Recently launched PACCAR Genuine Drive Shafts aim to increase uptime through the fast turnaround of drive shaft replacements for Kenworth trucks. Proudly engineered and built in Australia for Australian conditions, PACCAR Genuine Drive Shafts are built with consideration to all the following:
• Vehicle application
• Net input torque
• Baseline duty cycle – highway / off-road
• Gross vehicle mass
• Rear-axle ratio
• Transfer case ratio
• Universal joint working angle
• Low and high gear torque ratio
• Wheel slip torque
• Tyre rolling radius
• Axle capacity
• Engine clutch engagement torque at various RPM’s
• Maximum operating speed
• Torsional / Inertial vibration
• Static & Dynamic Centre bearing loading.
“The Kenworth DAF Dealer network recognises the importance of holding critical inventory and accessing channels that allow for fast turnaround of components to maximise customer uptime,” notes Phil Reynolds.
“Interaxle drive shafts are the first stage in a full driveshaft program rollout over the next few months and allow Kenworth owners and operators the choice to go to their PACCAR Dealer for supply and install of the same components as originally supplied from the factory.”
In addition to Drive Shafts, PACCAR Parts recently launched PACCAR Genuine Universal joints and PACCAR Genuine Clutch Installation kits, further growing the list of first fit products carrying the PACCAR Genuine identity. Whilst there exists many driveline suppliers in Australia, choosing PACCAR Genuine Driveline components ensures the quality and reliability remains consistent with what is expected from Kenworth.
PACCAR Genuine Universal Joints carry a 24-month warranty, and drive shafts and clutch installation kits carry a 12-month unlimited-kilometre warranty. All PACCAR Genuine Products are supported throughout Australia by the Kenworth DAF Dealer Network.
