About Us

Since 1979, SCS Gearbox, Inc. has been listening to its customer’s needs and demands and that is what has kept us going over the years. When we first started manufacturing, it was strictly to meet the needs of truck and tractor pullers. The goal was to provide specialized gearing for their tractors that was easily interchangeable to meet track conditions, this goal was met, and well exceeded. As our reputation for producing a quality product spread throughout the racing industry, customers from around world and from all aspects of racing have called us to see what we can do for them. As a result, we have developed and manufactured a product line for more than just tractor and truck pulling. Over the years we have opened our focus to cover tractor pulling, monster trucks, mud boggers, circle track, motorcycles, International and Domestic Offshore boat racing, and many more. The innovation process never stops! We are always looking for what is best for the customers and looking to help you Go-Faster and Be-Stronger! With over 37 years of experience behind us, we know what we are dealing with when it comes to racing and want to be the ones to help you get the wins you deserve!

Humble Beginnings:

In 1979, two brothers from Bellevue, Ohio, Mike and Chuck Sage, were approached by a man by the name of Dan Utz, who had a problem that was becoming very prevalent in the tractor pulling races. The problem was that once a tractor was built, gear ratios, for the most part, were fixed, and one gear was used for a specific class, with very little provision for adjusting to the track conditions. Utz approached the Sage’s about building a “quick change” unit allowing more flexibility in ratios so the conditions of the track could be met. Don Harness was also very interested in this concept. After going to the Super Pull VII in Indianapolis in 1980 it took about 3 to 4 months to complete the first prototype. This was only the beginning for the Sage’s. From this one prototype came three more boxes to start a whole new line of products. From our small beginning in Bellevue, Ohio this is where we still strive for greatness, in the same location it all began so many years ago. Everything is thought of, designed, and made right here in our one shop, with our customers to back us. Now, not only do we focus on tractor pullers, we have expanded our focus out to so many other aspects of racing including monster trucks, boat racing and so much more. From our slow steady beginning we have become a big deal in the racing industry and still work hard to keep our great reputation with superior customer service and product quality! We are proud to be family owned since our beginning, first with Mike Sage and now his son, Craig Sage.


We Listen to Our Customers:

Without our customers we wouldn’t have much of a business, and if we didn’t listen to the customer’s needs we never would have had a start as a company. This amazing quality makes us stand out. We take the time to talk to, listen to, and get to know our customers and their specific needs for current and future problems they may run into. We strive to do everything we can for a customer once the request has been made. We focus on the concept of happy customers because we understand that without you there would be no company here to give you what you need. We work to make the best products we can today, and we work even harder to produce the greatest products you can find tomorrow!

Always Improving:

As a company, if we didn’t keep up with the demand and the ever changing elements of the racing world, we would never stay alive in such a competitive line of business. We don’t wait for the industry to demand something greater from us. We are already working to stay ahead of the game and be ready for what tomorrow’s race world may throw at us! We want to be ready for anything that a customer could demand from us! And if it is a situation we haven’t seen before, we will ALWAYS do everything we can to get you the product that you need.

Quality and Consistency:

We believe in not only providing a high quality product but making that high quality product every time. Consistency is just as important as the quality of the product. If we only made a quality product one time our name would not have spread throughout the racing industry. We still make everything right where it all began in our one single shop in Bellevue, Ohio, with a staff that has been working with same products for years. We strive to make sure our products are at the top of the line and consistently great so that we know we can please you and your team with unfailing quality every time you order from us.


Machining Processes:

Our Employees are some of the Greatest Machine operators that we have come in contact with. Making sure that everyone knows what is going on at the shop at all times is a must. We work with the top of the line machinery and tools that are available. Most of our products include a steady process of CNC machining to insure the quality and consistency of the products we are sending to our customers. With the understanding that quality takes time, we hope you realize we are working our best and fastest to make sure that you get the best product that you need and that everything is in proper working order before it leaves our shop.


Friendly Staff:

We understand that there are a lot of places you could go to get a quality component for your racing vehicle but we go beyond the parts we make and strive to make every part of your purchasing experience quick, easy, and pleasant. We know what it is like to call a company and talk to someone that has no clue what they are dealing with or get a recording with unending confusion and frustration, and we don’t want to be like that. When you contact us, we will make sure that you speak with someone that can answer all of your challenging questions and is happy to speak with you. We want you to come to us and to come back again, and we are delighted to talk to every customer that calls and stops by. We do ask that you be patient and respectful as well when you call and understand that someone else may be on the phone with similar needs talking to a tech for help. Every customer deserves the same amount of quality assistance as the next.
