Commercial vehicle parts manufacturer, STEMCO, has struck a deal with Great Dane to make its Auto-Torq axle fastener standard on all Great Dane trailers.

Introduced to the market earlier this year, the Auto-Torq eliminates the need for complex processes and specialty tools. It securely applies the optimum clamp load on the bearings to minimise wear and maximise service life.

“By incorporating the STEMCO Auto-Torq axle fastener, we are removing complexity from our installation process,” said  VP of Product and Sales Engineering for Great Dane, Barry Personett. “This works with any industry hub manufacturer, simplifies installation, and extends bearing life by ensuring that the optimum clamp load is applied.”

The American trailer builder said it foresees the all-in-one solution streamlining wheel end installation and underscores the company’s desire to meet its customers evolving needs. An extended warranty includes eight years parts and labour and will be available to customers starting in January of 2024.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for two industry leading brands to join forces to elevate the performance of our equipment for our customers,” said STEMCO’s Senior Director of Global Sales Todd Dimascio. “Like with any great partnership, we can do more together than we could do separately.”
