Dana has launched a new program designed to eliminate the time and expense associated with purchasing and returning heavy-duty axle carrier cores.
With the new Core-Free Carrier Program, Spicer Heavy Axle customers will no longer be assessed a core charge when purchasing a carrier assembly. The program will do away with the need to, and the costs associated with, returning cores for credit.
The Core-Free Carrier Program went into effect July 1, 2004, when Dana began offering only new Spicer carriers. Dana is eliminating remanufactured carriers from the product line.
Another change being made is the addition of a 2-year, unlimited mile warranty on any remanufactured carrier that customers still have in inventory and sell after July 1. Consequently, remanufactured units can be sold with the same warranty as the new Spicer carriers. This will help truckers use up any existing inventory and still be covered with the same warranty as that with a new carrier, Spicer says.
“Everyone benefits from this winning program,” said Bernie Powers, Spicer Heavy Axle product manager. “We’ve eliminated a time-consuming and expensive aspect of our business, which will translate to better, overall service to our distributors, dealers and OEM customers. The costs associated with handling cores often tied up thousands of dollars of the dealer’s money. Now our customers will be able to take that money and spend it in ways that will benefit other areas of their business.”
