Maintaining a diesel engine

Just like owning a diesel car, light towers, pumps and generators will require regular engine maintenance. The general rule for servicing your new equipment is critical and/or weekly use requires a monthly service schedule whilst non-critical and/or use once a month requires a quarterly service schedule.

AllightSykes can provide a service schedule for you that covers the usage and application requirements of your equipment to ensure it is safe, ready for use and maintains its value. Some equipment will require more frequent servicing depending on load and climate.

Advantages of preventative maintenance

Unplanned, reactive maintenance has many overhead costs that can be avoided during the planning process. The cost of unplanned maintenance includes lost production, higher costs for parts and shipping, as well as time lost responding to emergencies and diagnosing faults while the equipment is not working.

Unplanned maintenance typically costs three to nine times more than planned maintenance. With a maintenance plan, reducing the overall cost of equipment is simple. Equipment can be shut down to coincide with production downtime.

Prior to the shutdown, any required parts, supplies and personnel can be gathered to minimise the time taken for a repair. These proactive maintenance measures decrease the total cost of maintenance activities.
