Proven quality and performance
YOU’RE probably familiar with the term “false economy”.
It refers to an apparent financial saving that in fact leads to greater expenditure.
It’s similar to the saying “you get what you pay for”.
While it can be tempting to scrimp on the cost of vehicle repairs, there are times when it’s definitely not worth the trouble.
With more than 30 years as Australia’s largest aftermarket and OE radiator manufacturer, Adrad has a wealth of knowledge on this subject.
Original Equipment (OE) plastic/aluminium radiators fitted to modern trucks are relatively cheap but sometimes they struggle to cope with Australia’s harsh conditions of extreme temperatures and rough roads.
Plastic/aluminium radiators fitted to Freightliner Argosy trucks have developed a bit of a reputation for failing after 18 months (or even less) in service.
Replace it with the same style radiator again and you can expect another workshop visit in the not-too-distant future.
In this instance, upgrading to a more durable radiator is needed and Adrad has the answer.
Adrad’s copper/brass construction aftermarket truck radiators have superior strength, extra vibration resistance and are designed to meet or exceed OE cooling performance.
Testing has proven that an Adrad radiator for the Argosy has lasted several years in an application where the plastic/aluminium unit wouldn’t last 18 months.
Paying more up front may not seem very appealing but in 18 months’ time when your Adrad radiator is still going strong, you won’t mind too much.
Comparing costs over the expected lifespan of Adrad’s copper/brass radiator, you can expect to enjoy potential savings of more than $10,000.
Plus you won’t be missing out on work while your truck is out of action.
Adrad designs and manufactures radiators in Australia to deliver on performance and durability while withstanding extreme and punishing conditions.
Their well-earned reputation for high quality and ISO9001:2015 accreditation confirm Adrad has the right cooling products that deliver when performance really matters.
Adrad radiators are available from specialist workshops all across Australia, including Natrad and Adrad Radiator Experts outlets.
