ConMet has expanded the aftermarket availability of its Preset hubs for additional medium-duty applications.
“Due to the increase in customer demand, we’re expanding our line of aftermarket Preset hubs for medium-duty axle configurations beyond FF front and R drive to include FC front, F drive, L drive, and 190 drive,” said Brian Rieger, vice president of North America sales for ConMet.
The company said technologies included in Preset hubs, such as pre-adjusted ConMet bearings and ConMet wheel seals, ensure enhanced performance and durability. One of the key benefits of replacing wheel ends with Preset hubs, according to the company, is significant time savings.
Compared to the time it would take to rebuild the same hub, replacing it with a Preset hub can save hours and minimize downtime, according to ConMet. Now fleets with certain medium-duty vehicles can have the same warranty and support previously available on other commercial vehicles. ConMet Preset hubs offer a 3-year/350,000-mile warranty.
