QuickFit Engine Assurance Program shortens downtime by more than 50 percent per preventive maintenance service event, according to Volvo Construction Equipment, which is offering the program. It is coupled with a zero-spill, $10,000 guarantee and catastrophic engine coverage for up to eight years or 12,000 hours.
QuickFit, from RPM Industries, works for oil changes in the field or shop. It uses a ground-accessible, single service point for full oil and filter changes. The system is available for the engine, transmission, and hydraulics with one fitting per compartment.
Technicians can complete an oil change service in less than 30 minutes with the system in place, according to Volvo. It eliminates ergonomic and safety issues caused by crawling under and around the machine, as well as the need for cumbersome pans. The QuickFit technology also removes the threat of hot oil burns and spills from pans or filters.
Lowering the standard time for preventive maintenance allows for higher machine availability. Technicians can shift their focus during the service window to machine inspection and identifying and correcting issues that could lead to future downtime. Beyond the environmental benefit of no spills, the system also reduces waste consumables such as gloves, rags, and buckets.
Customers can enroll in the program through a Repair Maintenance Agreement (RMA) with their local Volvo dealer. Once enrolled, customers own the QuickFit system for the life of the machine, and both system and engine warranty are transferrable with the machine for higher residual value at resale.
“This program extends our commitment to customer uptime,” said Ken Silverman, director, aftermarket sales, in a prepared statement. “Our dealer technicians can be proactive during the service while also improving the work environment with a focus on safety. When coupled with a Repair Maintenance Agreement, customers can secure uptime in a proactive and planned way.”
