Total savings for one loader (includes parts and labour costs)
An oil-filled bucket pin arrangement requires a lengthy labour component of 144 hours to change out parts over the usual 10,500 hour life cycle.
The Geographe range of EP (Enhanced Performance) products add value in extending equipment life and service intervals. Geographe clients that are currently using the solid pin kit detailed below in their CAT 994 Loaders have seen a reduction in the labour component to just 48 hours during a 10,500 life cycle.
Changing to a solid pin arrangement reduces the required downtime, as well as removing the additional labour usually required at the 7,000 hour mark.
