Continental has launched a full range of drive belts for the commercial vehicle aftermarket. Around 40 multi V-belt types have been added for the auxiliary drives of Volvo, Scania, Renault and Iveco vehicles. The belts feature profile codes 4PK, 6PK, 8PK, 10 PK and 12PK – i.e. ranging from the narrow variant with four ribs to the widest with twelve. They are made of fibre-reinforced synthetic rubber with a polyester tension member. Continental manufactures its drive belts for the aftermarket to the same quality standards as its original equipment products. The company grants registered workshops a five-year guarantee on them.
Continental added more than 40 new types for Mercedes-Benz, MAN and DAF vehicles to its range in early 2019. Now, distributors, commercial vehicle workshops and trucking companies with in-house workshops have access to a choice of more than 300 multi V-belt types for auxiliary drives. Now, Continental covers almost all the vehicle applications in the European market.
“Mechanics can, therefore, handle practically any auxiliary drive repair job that occurs. In addition, they have a one-stop source for power transmission products for a manufacturer’s entire vehicle line-up – from light delivery trucks through to tractor units for long-haul transport operations,” said Continental product manager Robert Franz.
