Power Train Saver Û a drivetrain protection device that prevents over-torque damage Û is especially suited to mixer trucks and heavy-duty construction vehicles bearing heavy loads on rough, uneven, and slippery terrain, notes supplier Sonnax Industries. Once installed, the device protects the drivetrain from any number of factors that can ruin differentials, gears, axles and driveshafts.
Power Train Savers feature patented Torque Fuses that shear if harmful over-torque occurs. Each set of torque fuses is engineered to shear just prior to the powertrain breaking point; once this occurs, the driveshaft remains in place, supported by an internal system. Collateral damage caused by a broken driveshaft is thereby avoided, as well as costly repairs to drivetrain components. Fixing the drivetrain entails simply replacing the torque fuses. Power Train Savers are available from leading heavy-duty maintenance and driveline shops.
