TRUSTED supplier of specialised driveline technology to the mining sector since the 1990s, Gearing Dynamics has an inventory of unique products specially designed for Toyota Landcruisers.
The Gearless Centre Differential is Gearing Dynamics’ premium product, converting standard part-time transfer cases into full-time four wheel drives.
Designed to neutralise damaging driveline wind-up, the Gearless Centre Differential has become a recognised industry upgrade.
It functions as an automatic lock-unlock driveline torque balancer to prevent destructive axle wind-up when operating in 4WD continuously on hard surfaces.
By outfitting their Landcruisers to withstand a range of harsh environments, major mining companies on all continents now spec their vehicles with the Gearless Centre Differential as a first line of defence.
Combined with other unique products designed and produced by Gearing Dynamics in the past 20 years, the Gearless Centre Differential allows Landcruisers to enjoy an extended on-site life with lower maintenance costs in both underground and surface operations.
Enabling smooth cornering with full traction at all times, the product has been proven in mines throughout Australia, Canada, Ireland, and Indonesia.
Gearing Dynamics also have available a transmission mounted Park Brake designed specifically for the rigours of the mining industry Landcruisers.
This simple disc rotor and calliper assembly easily attaches to the transfer case and rear output flange.
The calliper selected has stainless steel bushes and sleeves to withstand the harsh corrosive conditions.
A heavy steel lever is activated by the original Park brake lever for fail safe operation.
This park brake has been tested to more than hold a fully laden Landcruiser on an incline of up to 20 per cent.
A quick clean with a water jet and the Park Brake is ready to go.
All components are easily replaceable. The pads can be changed in a couple of minutes.
A popular product with mining and all four-wheel drivers is the company’s split CV boots to stop the damaging effects of corrosive water, mud or grit.
The split CV boots fully enclose the swivel housing and seals to keep them protected from harsh operating conditions, and avert the need for expensive housing replacements.
They can be easily fitted to the exposed 80, 78, 79, and V8 70 series Landcruiser axles and swivel housing.
Gearing Dynamics’ easy-to-service Greasable CV joints are also used extensively on Landcruisers throughout the mining industry.
The cage can be completely lubricated through an indented grease nipple at the end of the shaft, while a pressure relief valve prevents over greasing and seals blow-by. Regular greasing keeps water and impurities out.
When combined with one of Gearing Dynamics’ special steel drive flanges, Landcruisers are equipped with a front end capable of withstanding the most arduous mining conditions.
