Volvo Construction Equipment (CE) has increased its service intervals to 1000 hours on a range of machines, thanks to a new generation of fuel filters.
The Volvo High-Performance engine oil and fuel filters can be packaged with Volvo Engine Oil VDS-4.5 to halve maintenance costs while improving environmental impacts and component longevity.
Volvo CE head of uptime and parts Niclas Wahlström said the research and development process on these products was lengthy.
“We understand that increasing uptime and reducing maintenance costs are vital objectives for our customers,” Wahlström said.
“That is why our design and engineering teams dedicate many hours to develop high quality machines and components for a long-lasting performance.”
Volvo stated that while the new oils and filters can benefit older machines, operators should consult individual manuals for recommended service intervals.
Wahlström said Volvo understood that downtime was the enemy of any quarrying and construction site, and the new service package could mitigate this.
“The 1,000-hour engine service interval is yet another reason why we believe Volvo is the number one brand when it comes to uptime and total cost of ownership,” he said.
“The result is reduced maintenance requirements and less maintenance costs, meaning customers’ machines stay out on the job site and working their best.”
