For Philadelphia Gear gearboxes, customers need only submit their machine's model number, located on the nameplate in the box labeled "Size/Type." Once they've entered this information, customers gain access to a detailed technical drawling and list of all the parts, where they can simply click on the desired part. This information, along with the gearbox serial number and customer contact information, is all that is needed to submit a quote request. Within 24 hours, a representative from Philadelphia Gear will respond with a price quote for the necessary parts.


For non-Philadelphia Gear gearing equipment, customers can submit technical drawings via the web site, as well as other product-specific information crucial to identifying replacement parts. Once this information is sent, a representative from Philadelphia Gear will contact the customer with a quote.


With over 100 years of technical drawings and other proprietary information in inventory, Philadelphia Gear is well equipped to handle customers' requests in a knowledgeable and timely fashion. The new online parts quote system enables Philadelphia Gear to better serve its growing customer base.
