AS EARTHMOVING AND CONSTRUCTION OPERATORS RETURN TO FULL OPERATION
Komatsu's comprehensive Preventative Maintenance (PM) Clinic program, designed as a maintenance and inspection service for a range of machines, is a cost-effective and hassle-free way to keep a machine working at its optimum level of efficiency.
Komatsu Business Development Manager Service, Aaron Kumar, said Preventative Maintenance Clinics were one of the best ways for an operator to ensure the ongoing reliability and profitability of any Komatsu machine.
"PM Clinics give a machine owner real peace of mind knowing that they can avoid a potential mechanical breakdown before it's too late," he said."PM Clinics involve a fully trained Komatsu service technician, who conducts a comprehensive inspection and in-depth analysis of your machine's mechanical condition and servicing requirements.
"Each clinic includes Komatsu Oil and Wear Analysis (KOWA) of all major oil compartments, an undercarriage inspection report, and a detailed PM clinic inspection report for the customer."It keeps owners and operators up to date with how their machine is performing, preventing major mechanical failure, a loss of productivity and profit in the long term," he said.
Preventative Maintenance Clinics are available for Komatsu Hydraulic Excavators, Wheel Loaders and Bulldozers. All work is performed as per the factory workshop maintenance manual, and provided at a fixed cost assisting customers with long-term cost control. Aaron said a PM Clinic could be the best investment a customer makes all year.
"Delivering market-leading customer service and parts support is Komatsu's commitment to the industry, ensuring the long-term durability and reliability of every machine we sell," he said.
