Drivetrain Distributors (Pty) Ltd

Drivetrain Distributors Pty Ltd are drive train specialists who comply with ISO9001 specs, and are able to rebuild and repair all transmission/drive train components. At Drivetrain Distributors Pty Ltd we repair, rebuild and service the full drive train – gearbox, clutches propshafts, transfer cases, differentials (diffs) and CV joints (Constant Velocity Joints). We do this for heavy industrial type equipment, light commercial vehicles and privately owned motorcars. Jump to OUR SERVICES and expand for detailed descriptions.

In South Africa we use the word ‘transmission’ in both the British and American context, which confuses things: The English context being where the expression “transmission” is a mechanical term referring to the whole drive train, inclusive of gearbox, clutch, propshaft, transfer case (if used), differentials (diffs), final drive shafts and CV joints; whilst the American expression – “transmission” – generally refers to a gearbox that can be “shifted” to dynamically change the speed-torque ratio such as in a vehicle.

We have consistently served the following industries for more than 20 years:

  • Automotive dealerships such as Ford, Mazda, Toyota, Mitsubishi etc.
  • Workshops & Repair and maintenance facilities
  • Commerical, Trucking & Mining sectors
