As a leading global provider of application-specific fluid power and power transmission solutions, Gates Australia has developed a range of 4WD emergency kits. These kits are designed to provide drivers with everything they need to tackle unexpected breakdowns, whether on the side of the highway, off-roading in the bush or stranded in an isolated location, a 4WD emergency kit can save the day from an unexpected hose or belt failure.
Each kit is specifically tailored to cater to 4WD and high kilometer vehicles and is available for a wide range of popular makes including Toyota Hilux & Land Cruiser, Nissan Navara, Ford Ranger, and Mitsubishi Pajero. Each kit includes a range of essential parts, such as:
- Radiator hose(s)
- V and/or micro-v belts
- Hose clamps
Packaged for compact storage in your vehicle, drivers can replace worn parts wherever they are, giving them peace of mind knowing they have everything they need to navigate any situation that comes their way.
Let’s take a close look at some of the key components of these 4WD emergency kits. The radiator hose(s), are manufactured to fit upper, lower and bypass, heater and other coolant applications with OEM specifications and is engineered to resist electrochemical degradation – the leading cause of hose failure. The V and/or Micro-V belts on the other hand, feature advanced technology that matches the OE size, construction, and materials to ensure optimal vehicle performance. And the hose clamps are designed to provide secure and reliable connections between hoses and fittings. But perhaps the best thing about these kits is their convenience. With everything packed into a single compact/reusable bag, drivers can easily store the kit in their vehicle and have it on hand whenever they need it.
The Gates 4WD emergency kits are available from all Gates automotive distributors in Australia and New Zealand. If you are not sure whether there is a kit available for your vehicle, you can simply go to navigates.gates.com/au and search for your vehicle for a complete parts listing.
