|What is preventative
maintenance, or, PM? PM is the procedure that is done on vehicles that
allow problems to be detected before that problem causes a breakdown.
This is very important to your business, because if your truck goes down
you not only lose money by not getting your product out, but you lose
money because the breakdown that occurred will, in most cases, cost more
to repair then had you kept up with your PM’s and found the root cause
before the breakdown.
To do a
thorough PM on a medium duty truck takes a minimum of 3.5 hours. Heavy
duty trucks can take up to 5 hours to perform. In most cases the first
reaction to these hours is “that’s a lot of time and money”. Let’s ask
the question: What cost less in dollars, a PM that could cost $350.00 on
a Medium duty, or an engine job that could cost as much as $12,000.00 to
$15,000.00? The answer is obvious. This of course doesn’t even include
the cost of renting a truck for at least a week while yours is being
repaired and loss of business.
Okay. How would a PM program have
prevented this costly engine job form happening? Efficiency has
developed, over the years, a procedure or check list if you may. This
list encompasses draining and replacement of all fluids and then sending
these fluids out to be analyzed by an oil company. These results are
reviewed to determine if there is any contamination of any sort in the
sample. Depending on the contaminate, this will tell if a problem is on
the horizon or not. However if you are letting Efficiency do your PM’s
you should get the maximum life out of your equipment because we are
changing fluids at the OEM’s recommended intervals with the proper type
It is not just the fluids that are
addressed at PM’s but a long list of items to include the electrical
system, brake system, steering systems, tires and suspension etc… All of
these things add up to less down time and more up time, which in turn
means more return to your bottom line.
