It’s in Our Name

Axleboy

Out on the asphalt and up in the air,

Found on them rails rollin’ everywhere,

Down every road and out on the range,

 Playin’ in the dirt, on things quite strange.

They help move things from here to there,

They keep it all rolling without much care.

TA, Planetary, Axletech,

Rockwell, Dana, custom spec.

When you need help with somethin’ great or small

Just pick up your phone and give us a call.

Tractors, trucks, cars, trains & airplanes too.

Because fixing up axles is what we do.

Axle Remanufacturing

Re-Think Axleboy

Axleboy has a reputation for delivering consistent, quality axle workmanship that is built upon 10 years of experience and backed by countless off road vehicles & national reconditioning contracts.

Whether it’s a Jeep, truck, tractor, tug or train, if it has an axle, the work we do can add strength and longevity to life of your equipment.

When it comes to axle failure, the symptoms are fairly obvious, and easy to observe…loud grinding noises, massive break, or lack of engagement between the gears and axle.  Discovering the source of problems and then accurately correcting the issue requires a lot more time and effort.

 

Built to LastTug GT_50

Under normal circumstances replacing broken parts is not an overly complicated task…unless you are dealing with 40, 50 and 60+ year old industrial equipment.  The great thing about most TA-267, Shuttlewagon, Trackmobile, GT-50 and other Planetary axles is that they were built to last.  Unfortunately many of these axles have lasted so long, that now it is almost impossible to find replacement parts, let alone a service manual.

Our technicians know axles inside & out and are trained to do more than simple replacements.  We also provide them with access to an entire machine shop where they have the ability to custom manufacture out-of-production components and develop innovative solutions to keep things rolling.  We do everything from troubleshooting to total overhauls and have even developed a custom disc-brake conversion kit for the TA-267 tug axle.

 

Call the Experts

Don’t let our simple shop-front deceive you.  Axleboy is much more than just another auto shop.  We are the axle experts.  Whether it’s a Jeep, truck, tractor, tug or train our experts are fully qualified to maintain, repair and modify almost any axle to meet your needs.

 

Before you scrap that axle, know all your options.  Call us toll free at 877-295-3269 to consult with Scott Carline, owner and axle expert at Axleboy.

GSE Baggage Tractor TA-267 Drum Brake to Disc Brake Conversion.

We get a lot of complaints from our clients about the poor stopping power, high cost of maintenance, and mess with the drum brakes that were used on TA-267 Baggage TUG axles.  We can modify your axle and update it to use late model Delco style calipers. Dual wheels were popular on many of these, we can even retain dual wheels or convert to single wheel. The dual wheels requires the track width to be 2″ wider on each side to clear the calipers on the wheels.
