Hytec Bosch Rexroth has been re-appointed as the authorised ZF Group (ZF) Service Partner for the repair and supply of industrial gearboxes, mobile gearboxes and spare parts across Africa.
Originally signed in 2015, this agreement was reinstated at the end of 2020 in Johannesburg. We have over 50 years’ experience in repairing and servicing ZF gearboxes to OEM standards, and have a long history with the company.
Our repair services comprise of:
Repaired at our workshop in Kempton Park, Johannesburg, ZF mobile gearboxes are tested to OEM specifications. These services are administered by our highly competent and dedicated personnel, who are trained at ZF’s manufacturing plant in Germany. The use of original parts means that ZF can offer customers a 12-month warranty on repaired and new units.
“As ZF industrial and mobile gearboxes are often used in hydraulic shovels and processing plants, our services are ideally suited for the mining industry. Although, prospects of wind-energy equipment and stationary mobile industrial gearbox repairs are on the horizon,” explains Ian Kidson, Repairs Manager.
During the repair phase, we offer an exchange programme on the hydraulic shovels which includes swing gearboxes, pump drive gearboxes (PDT’s) and final drives. An exchange programme goes a long way to helping reduce our customers’ downtime. We also retain a large stockholding of new and re-built ZF mobile gearboxes for those instances when a complete replacement is necessary.
Gearboxes from Lohmann & Stolterfoht (L&S), the original ZF gearbox manufacturers, also fall into this service offering.
