Drive belts last longer


AUTOBAX has extended its range of Gates automotive components, specifically-designed belts for high-mileage cars.

“RoadMAX™ by Gates accessory belts have been developed by the Gates technical and engineering teams, in line with DIN standards, to meet growing demand for replacement components for high-mileage vehicles,” explains John Black, managing director, Autobax automotive after-market specialists.

“RoadMAX belts, which offer optimal performance in older vehicles, compliment the premium Gates range of light and heavy-duty belts.” 

Priced-by-performance RoadMAX belts feature optimised dimensions; good belt flexibility and stability, as well as smooth-running operation.

Autobax is the preferred Gates service provider locally and the sole distributor of Gates automotive timing components in South Africa. 

It recently acquired the global Driveshaft Parts Group, which services passenger cars, light commercial, heavy-duty, off-highway and agricultural vehicles, as well as vehicles for industrial sectors, including steel mills, paper mills and marine.
