Some of the key factors to consider when buying a secondhand gearbox of any type
(diesel, natural gas, electric, propane, gas, etc):
- Age, Hours, and Usage
Age, Hours, and Usage:
- Manufacturer history and reputation
- How well it has been maintained
- Physical wear and tear on the unit
- How it performs in a Load Test
- Whom you are purchasing it from
- Whether the seller offers a guarantee or limited warranty
A secondhand gearbox that has been used as a standby or backup power source will
typically be better maintained and have much less wear than one used as a prime
power source. However, be aware that there are many times when the age and usage
information is simply not available. The reputation and technical expertise of the
seller is most important, since they will be the ones who inspect, tune, rebuild,
test, and fix anything that might be wrong before reselling it. At Engines and
Gearboxes we offer only top quality, all gearboxes are thoroughly tested by our
top engineers before dispatch.
Manufacturer History and Reputation:
Since you are purchasing a product that you will most likely come to rely on, now
is not really the time to be cutting corners or taking big chances on unknown brands.
It's always a good idea to go with a trusted manufacturer who has a reputation for
producing equipment that can stand the stress and test of time.
You can find parts and have a service right here that is readily available to give
you a quality standard of customer care. We have a long history of supplying
you with high quality equipment that will last for years and years when.
Who you are purchasing it from:
While anyone on the street can put a gearbox up for sale in the classifieds,
on eBay, and so forth, that's clearly not an ideal situation for a buyer.
Industrial diesel gearboxs are complex, finely tuned pieces of machinery that clearly
needs to be properly maintained and tested by certified technicians in order for
them to operate at optimum efficiency and be there when you need them most.
To eliminate any risks, we recommend always going with a professional organization
backed by years of experience, just like we offer here….
Guarantees and Limited Warranties:
Since you are purchasing pre-owned equipment when you buy a used gearbox, you obviously
aren't going to be able to get much in the way of a long-term warranty.
However, you should still always insist on a guarantee after your purchase.
Most sellers who are true professionals that properly test and maintain the equipment
will offer a guarantee. Of course, we offer 100% warranty with all our products
There are obviously numerous factors and considerations to take into account when
buying a used gearbox, but hopefully this article has helped to at least shed some
light on many of the critical components.

Future of Transmissions
In the future we may see many newer types of gearboxes coming onto the market some
are already here like continuously
variable transmission (CVT)
however, we may see the launch of the
infinitely variable transmission (IVT)
This will eneable a much smoother
change of gear and more control and fuel efficiency of the vehicle.
