Southland Radiators – The month that was in Invercargill
A digger radiator, leaking core and broken top plastic tank
A Komatsu digger radiator that came in with a leaking core and broken top plastic tank. Our radiator repairer made a new alloy tank and welded it to a new quality ADRAD radiator core and reused the bottom tank. Saved the customer $$$$$ on a new genuine radiator.
Radiator Repair and Service
When last has your radiator been serviced?
A Ford Courier radiator was in for a clean as it’s getting the head gasket done.
Tip: If you own a 1999 or later Ford Courier and you haven't had your radiator serviced recently, 90% of the Courier radiators that come into our radiator repair shop for a service look like this. Service your radiator regularly to avoid costly radiator repairs.
A radiator re-core

What is a radiator re-core? This method is where you use your existing tanks and brackets from your “damaged” radiator and place them onto a brand new radiator core.
The difference a quality radiator can make.
See below, a selection of poor quality radiators that customers have purchased from various suppliers. All of these radiators have failed within 2 years. These have either caused major engine damage or not been efficient enough to cool the vehicle under load.
Luckily the second time round the customers visited Southland Radiators and I have sorted their cooling system needs with quality ADRAD parts. Although cheap online radiators may be tempting in the short-term, they may end up costing you more in the long run.
So for quality parts and service for your cooling system, come in and see me or give a nationwide ADRAD radiator agent a call. Do it once and do it right.
