Samil Remanufacturing Process

Week 1 - Standard Used Military Vehicle


The beginning of the remanufacturing process starts here.

We take a low mileage standard samil and strip it down to a bear chassis. This process is done because even though some of these vehicles have mileage of 5000km or less they have not been used for years and all the seals, air pipes and wiring is corroded and needs to be replaced.

Week 2 - Rolling Chassis 


The samil truck is now stripped down to bare chassis. The engine is removed and sent to the engine room where it is opened, checked, repaired where necessary, reassembled and tested on a work bench. The gear box, diffs and transfer case are also opened, checked,
cleaned, oil is replaced and put back together.

Week 3 - Reassembling of The Vehicle

The refurbished cab and all refurbished items are now fitted to the chassis.

All necessary faulty parts are now replaced with new and/ or recondition parts. New seals, wiring harness, fuel lines and air hoses are fitted.

We also offer a left hand drive conversion which is done in this step. The cab is sprayed to the colour of your choice and is fully reupholstered.

Week 4 - Fitting of The Specified Load body

The vehicle has now been remanufactured and follows a strict 600 km road test. The test is broken down into a 100km , 200 km and 300 km drive. Checking the vehicle in our workshop at the end of each test drive. This ensures that the vehicle is in 100% working condition and all seals are seated and the brakes are adjusted. The truck is then put through a road worthy test. This process takes approximately one week and once completed the truck is ready to be delivered.

Week 6 - Paper work 

All registration documents, export documentation, police clearance and roadworthy certificates are completed and ready for delivery.
