We had a customer with a John Deere grader, the radiator failed in the core and the tanks were completely rusted out.
The unit was obsolete from the dealer and no longer available. We had a new core made by Adrad and we fabricated a new set of tanks to produce a new radiator.
The customer was able to refit the radiator and be back at work quickly. The works were completed in one week.
This radiator is out of an old generator and as it is in so many cases replacement units are not available. We were able to manufacture a complete new assembly. We fabricated the tanks in house. We are always able to offer a solution to most obsolete radiators.
