STEMCO and Great Dane announced Wednesday that STEMCO’s new Auto-Torq axle fastener will come standard on all Great Dane trailers. 

“By incorporating the STEMCO Auto-Torq axle fastener, we are removing complexity from our installation process,” said Barry Personett, vice president of product and sales engineering for Great Dane. “This works with any industry hub manufacturer, simplifies installation, and extends bearing life by ensuring that the optimum clamp load is applied.” 

Introduced to the market earlier this year, STEMCO says the Auto-Torq is an axle fastener that eliminates the need for complex processes and specialty tools. It securely applies the optimum clamp load on the bearings every time to minimize wear and maximize service life, the company adds.

"We are excited to partner with STEMCO on making the Auto-Torq axle fastener standard on Great Dane trailers,” said Chris Hammond, executive vice president of sales for Great Dane. “We believe this all-in-one solution will streamline wheel end installation, with an exclusive extended warranty that provides significant value to our customers. This is another product change that underscores our dedication to meeting and exceeding the evolving needs of our customers."

The extended warranty includes eight years parts and labor and will be available to customers starting in January of 2024, the companies say.

STEMCO’s Senior Director of Global Sales Todd Dimascio, adds, “This is a fantastic opportunity for two industry leading brands to join forces to elevate the performance of our equipment for our customers. Like with any great partnership, we can do more together than we could do separately.”
