VIDEO: Transmission Rebuild Time Lapse Pt. 1


One of the most significant characteristics of American Crane and Tractor that distinguishes us from our competition is the quality and availability of our rebuilt components for heavy equipment. Customers without the time, money, or manpower to do a complete rebuild on their own come to us with a strong confidence that we can get them the component they need at a fraction of the OEM price without sacrificing quality. And since all of our rebuilds come with a 6-month warranty they can be certain that we stand by the products coming out of our shop.

However, what many outside of ACTParts do not know is that the quality of our rebuilds also fulfills a critical role for us internally: quality control. We replace every bearing, seal, and electrical element on all of our rebuilt components using parts from our own stock as well as incorporate all critical engineering updates. Any hard parts that do not meet OEM specs are also replaced with a brand new, OEM quality part that comes directly off the shelf at our warehouse. And through vigorous testing to ensure quality, we make sure every one of those parts works as it should. If any parts do not perform up to our standards they are immediately pulled from inventory so that they never see the inside of our customers’ machines.

In the video below, you can see the first of three internal sections of a 9W1285 transmission being assembled for a 621E scraper by one of our 30-year veteran mechanics, Bill. We hope you enjoy it and look forward to hearing your comments.
