SKF USA has announced the expansion of options for its premium wheel end system warranty packages to five or seven years, under the SKF Trouble-Free Operation (TFO) program, for the Trailer OEM. With this SKF TFO program enhancement, Trailer OEMs now have the flexibility to customize warranty periods based on the products in the package that are more in line with their customers’ demands.
To qualify for the expanded warranty options customers must use the SKF ScotsealPlusXL, the SKF TF hubcap, and Hyatt branded tapered roller bearings. The SKF wheel end system products can be used with proven industry spindle nut designs and approved lubricants.
“The industry has been asking for wheel end products that both work together and complement each other, especially when it comes to warranties,” said Scott Simmonds, vice president of heavy duty sales at SKF. “Fleets want to know that they can use the best products without having to worry about conflicting warranties later on.”
