Press Release

Since Mike Mendeola first introduced the Mendeola MD in 1996, Weddle Industries has worked as a close partner and the primary gear supplier for all Mendeola MD4E, MD4-2D, and MD5-Speed transaxles. For nearly two decades, both companies have had great success with the MD program and are very proud of the work they've done to make this series of transaxles so popular with high performance enthusiasts. Weddle Industries has recently secured the rights to become the exclusive producer of the entire MD transaxle line. Now known as Mendeola MD Series Transaxles by Weddle Industries, all MD series kits and components will ship directly from Weddle's facility in Goleta, California. Weddle has acquired all tooling, drawings and designs necessary to produce the kits, and they are happy to announce that the MD4E Econo kit and MD5-Speed kit are being brought back into full production.

All MD kits will include the new Extreme Duty XDC main case and a choice of bell housings. MD4E kits include a Gleason 5.14 r&p set, while MD4-2D and MD5 kits include a Weddle Klingelnberg Palloid r&p set (any ratio).
