There’s a reason why transmission professionals install more TransTec® kits than all other kits combined. Since 1978 when the brand was founded, the objective has been to provide the independent aftermarket with the most comprehensive, highest quality kits available. In an industry that has seen significant change and many challenges, the original brand promise that made it the preferred brand has been maintained and has stood the test of time.
With all of this activity at the OEM level, it is only natural that this collective experience as the world leader in seal manufacturing translates into expertise in the aftermarket. In every case, advances in sealing technology learned from not only past research but also feedback from the field are considered.
When you're putting your hard-earned money back into your shop, you want to be sure you're getting the best value from your investments. When it comes to buying transmission seals in particular, however, it can be challenging to figure out which kit will not only make for a successful rebuild but also reflect well on your business. How can you tell which overhaul kit is the best?
It's no surprise that you always want to make the best choices when it comes to your transmission shop. It's always best to consider what's in the best interest of your customers, your employees, and your business. One of the most important choices you have to make is what parts you'll use in your rebuilds--that includes what kind of parts, and where you'll get them. And on top of that, all the parts you use are important, from larger mechanical parts and new technology all the way down to the transmission seals.
Heavy duty vehicles (just like any other type of vehicle) are starting to look a lot different today. Maybe you can't see the differences on the outside, but under the hood, change is happening. Perhaps the biggest change in vehicle technology in the past two decades is the transition from hydraulic to electronic power steering, and those advancements are finally making their way into the heavy duty segment.
