Proven qual­ity and per­for­mance

Big Rigs - - WORKSHOP FEATURE -

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.
