New clutch kits round out trusted range from Drivetech 4x4

Drivetech 4x4 – Australia’s most trusted range of drivetrain components for 4WDs and light commercial vehicles – has released a new range of high quality clutch kits. The addition of clutch kits makes the Drivetech 4x4 range of under bonnet and under vehicle parts and repair kits one of the largest in the country.

Clutch kits make Drivetech 4x4 a convenient ‘one-stop-shop’

“Launched as a result of feedback from customers, the new clutch kits complete our product offering and effectively make Drivetech 4x4 a ‘one-stop-shop’ for specialist 4WD repairers and workshops who perform their own gearbox and clutch repairs,” says Motospecs Category Manager, Ben Lavis. “Many Drivetech 4x4 customers are specialist gearbox rebuilders and generally, if you’re taking the gearbox out for a rebuild, you tend to replace the clutch as well.”

“Now, workshops can buy any drivetrain-related component, including clutch kits, from Drivetech 4x4. As well as the convenience factor, this has real potential to save workshops time and money, including the cost of additional freight incurred when ordering from more than one supplier.” Workshops purchasing a number of components from Drivetech 4x4 also have the added security of knowing the parts are all matched to one another. “It makes the whole buying process more efficient,” explains Ben.

Comprehensive range

Packed with all the necessary components, Drivetech 4x4’s new clutch kits come in four versions:Drivetech 4x4 Clutch Kit

  • Standard Clutch & Pressure Plate kits
  • Heavy Duty Clutch & Pressure Plate kits
  • Dual Mass Flywheel & Clutch kits
  • Single Mass Flywheel & Clutch Conversion kits.

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s a comprehensive range that covers applications for popular 4WD makes including Toyota, Nissan and Mitsubishi as well as others such as Ford and Mazda.

The superior quality you’d expect from Drivetech 4x4

The Drivetech 4x4 brand is synonymous with quality, reliability and cost effectiveness and the new clutch kit range is no exception. “The kit components are sourced from highly regarded manufacturers worldwide and come with a 1 year/20,000 kms warranty. Many of the components in the kits come direct from OEM manufacturers, so workshops can be confident in the quality when they choose a Drivetech 4x4 clutch kit.”

“When you put a new clutch in and something goes wrong, it’s an expensive fix. With our clutch kits, workshops can be absolutely confident their customers will drive away with a top quality new clutch in their transmission.”

Give your customers options with Drivetech 4x4 clutch kits

The range gives workshops and customers added flexibility when it comes to clutch repairs. “With this range, we’re aiming to help repairers provide customers with alternatives. The clutch can be an expensive repair and not everyone wants to spend a fortune.”

“For example with our range, you can offer a customer whose dual mass flywheel clutch has failed, the option of a direct replacement using a Drivetech 4x4 Dual Mass Flywheel & Clutch kit. You can also give them the option of a single mass flywheel clutch conversion instead, using the Drivetech 4x4 Single Mass Flywheel & Clutch Conversion kit, which is going to be more affordable in the long run.”

More components included as standard

Drivetech 4x4 clutch repair kits feature often contain more components than competitor kits and include as standard many components that are missing from competitor clutch kits.

“One example is the clutch aligning tool that comes standard in all Drivetech 4x4 clutch kits. With many competitor kits this would be an additional purchase,” says Ben. Spigot bearings/bushes are another example. These come standard in Drivetech 4x4 clutch kits. These components are important for correct fitment and longevity of the repair, however they are not included in many competitor clutch kits.

Positive feedback, expanding range

Feedback on the new range of Drivetech 4x4 clutch kits has been very positive. “Everyone who’s bought one has been very happy. The range is continually growing – Australia-wide we’ve had workshops calling and asking for part numbers, so we’re constantly adding to the range to meet our customers’ requirements.”
