Diagnosis of steering problems
Some of the hardest steering problems to diagnose are steering concerns on the high- way. The truck may be wandering, darting or the steering is unpredictable. These problems will place a lot of strain on the driver in addition to being a road safety issue.
Hydrosteer has specialised in heavy vehicle steering systems since 1981 and has developed diagnostic techniques to identify and solve all manner of steering issues.
Hydrosteer works closely with Australian truck manufacturers during the design phase of vehicles.
Hydrosteer is respected for its technical ability and is often engaged to help solve steering issues. We have for many years been a supplier of quality product to Australian truck manufacturers.
Hydrosteer’s product development team can design complete steering systems, vehicle upgrades to dual control or twin steer and general steering system enhancements.
We have established four Hydrosteer owned service departments – three on the east coast of Australia and one on the west coast in Perth. In other key regions of Australia
and New Zealand we have appointed service agents who have all undergone service training and use Hydrosteer designed test equipment. This ensures that the same technical standards are available across Australia and New Zealand.
Commitment to quality
At Hydrosteer we have a commitment to produce the best engineered product available.
Our ISO certified product development and manufacturing processes ensure that all our customers benefit from this commitment.
Our focus on technical leadership, availability of a wide range of parts and engineering product enhancements has led Hydrosteer to become leaders in development, manufacturing, servicing, diagnosis and supply of heavy vehicle power steering systems.
