More than a parts supplier, Hydrosteer offers full in-house manufacturing capability.
As the heavy vehicle transport fleet in Australia ages, it can become increasingly difficult to source many of the spare parts that keep these rigs in service. Many otherwise reliable workhorses have been consigned to a premature retirement due to vital parts no longer being available or if they can be sourced, they’re often prohibitively expensive.
Fortunately, economical solutions still exist for steering components through the Hydrosteer network.
Our facility in Bayswater has full in-house ISO accredited manufacturing capability to produce high quality OEM equivalent and aftermarket replacement mitre gears, drag links and steering slip shafts within short lead times. Being produced in-house also means we have full control of the process.
At Hydrosteer, we ensure that all parts are easy to fit yourself or if required you can take advantage of the expertise of our economical specialist fitting services.
Naturally, all parts come with a full 12-month Hydrosteer warranty and access to the technical support available through our national network.
Wherever possible, all manufacturing is proudly undertaken using Australian made components that are sourced from local suppliers, which enables quick turnaround times. We specialise in the custom manufacturing of steering components and welcome enquiries to produce one-off requirements or hard to source parts.
The Hydrosteer range of Australian made mitre gears have been developed after extensive research and are produced utilising high quality locally sourced components which are assembled by us to ensure precision performance at all times.
Mitre gears for use in left hand to right hand drive conversions are specifically designed to maintain the integrity of existing steering geometry and are a technically superior solution for this application.
We are able to manufacture replacement drag links too and the Hydrosteer branded range comes with our unique replaceable rod ends, making them far more economical than their competitors, which require replacement of the entire drag link unit. In addition, to assist in the easy removal of rod ends we have service tools available.
Hydrosteer has a range of locally manufactured steering slip shafts which are equivalent to the OEM product, enabling us to supply product within short lead times.
All product leaving our manufacturing facility is presented to a high standard and is suitable for immediate use or resale.
