Ter­rain Tamer diff locker kit

Motor Equipment News - - NEWS -

Ter­rain Tamer have part­nered with Har­rop and Ea­ton to cre­ate the Ter­rain Tamer dif­fer­en­tial locker kit, com­plete with both the ELocker unit and all bear­ings and gas­kets re­quired for fit­ment.

The patented four-pin­ion elec­tronic sys­tems are made in Aus­tralia, and op­er­ate man­u­ally us­ing an elec­tro­mag­net pow­ered by the ve­hi­cle’s bat­tery, su­per­sed­ing com­pres­sor tech­nol­ogy, and leav­ing the driver in full con­trol to lock or un­lock the dif­fer­en­tials when nec­es­sary with an easy push-but­ton ac­ti­va­tion.

When locked, the ELocker per­forms as a full locker, cap­tur­ing 100 per­cent of avail­able torque and send­ing it equally to both ends of the axle, max­imis­ing the avail­able trac­tion, pro­vid­ing greater ve­hi­cle con­trol when ap­proach­ing po­ten­tially dan­ger­ous ob­sta­cles such as hill climbs.

The ELocker has been de­signed us­ing pre­ci­sion forged Amer­i­can gears from Ea­ton. With a three-year man­u­fac­turer’s war­ranty, these gears are specif­i­cally in­tended for heavy duty ap­pli­ca­tion and pro­vide im­proved strength and dura­bil­ity over stan­dard cut gears. Pre­vi­ously avail­able for use in Amer­i­can ve­hi­cles only, the ELocker units utilise these gears to ex­pand ap­pli­ca­tion to pop­u­lar Ja­panese ve­hi­cles avail­able in Aus­tralia.

The Ter­rain Tamer diff locker kit con­ve­niently com­bines the ELocker with all bear­ings and gas­kets re­quired for fit­ment. Of­ten costly or dif­fi­cult to find as a com­plete set, Ter­rain Tamer com­bines all com­po­nents into a ve­hi­cle spe­cific kit, util­is­ing Ja­panese made parts to en­sure the high­est qual­ity, and en­abling fit­ment with­out added wait time.

“The ELocker is a great fit for the Ter­rain Tamer range,” says Ter­rain Tamer mar­ket­ing man­ager Brent Hutchin­son. “The new kit al­lows us, once again, to de­liver world class Aus­tralian in­no­va­tion from right here in Mel­bourne, to our rapidly grow­ing in­ter­na­tional cus­tomer base and across de­mand­ing con­di­tions world­wide.”

Op­er­at­ing in such a way that both axles re­main in­de­pen­dent, the ELocker is eas­ily fit­ted us­ing a sim­ple drop in fit­ting process.

The units use no re­place­able parts such as O-Rings, so re­quire less main­te­nance, and the elec­tro­mag­netic lock­ing mech­a­nism elim­i­nates the com­pli­ca­tion and cost in­volved in run­ning a com­pres­sor and the re­lated air-lines. In­stead, the ELocker con­nects to the dif­fer­en­tial us­ing two wires with dust and wa­ter­proof plugs, pro­vid­ing sim­plic­ity and ease of re­pair in the event of dam­age.

Ter­rain Tamer diff locker kits are avail­able for both front and rear, for a wide range of ve­hi­cles. For more in­for­ma­tion, call (09) 263 6021 or visit ter­rain­tamer.com/elocker
