Gates has released a new 204-page, full colour publication, featuring the entire OE quality Gates Heavy Duty product program for trucks and buses in one handy catalogue.
The move to include drive system products alongside the full range of hoses for coolant, fuel and air systems for the first time is evidence that Gates is intent on expanding its share of the heavy duty market, while the introduction of a new line of turbocharger hoses shows a determination to invest for further success.
Best known as an OE supplier and one of the world’s largest manufacturers of belts and tensioners for passenger cars, the Gates OE footprint also covers parts installed on assembly lines at most of the world’s major truck and bus manufacturers and this catalogue takes advantage of those OE connections.
The Gates Heavy Duty Catalogue includes a comprehensive OE list. Arranged alphabetically by truck/bus manufacturer, it includes cross references that identify all the correct Gates products according to OE references.
The catalogue gives detailed product information on Gates Extra Service belts, tensioners, idlers and kits. For convenience, the most common makes/models are clearly indicated.
Gates expert universal tools are given a high priority. This underlines a commitment to installer support – demonstrated last year with the introduction of Gates Techzone (www.gatestechzone.com) – and a desire to help ensure first time installation on trucks and buses while keeping downtime to a minimum.
Full application information for the Gates Heavy Duty programme is included in the online application catalogue: Gatesautocat.com.
