Volvo CE extend engine service intervals to 1,000h
High-performance engine oil and fuel filters cut service intervals and costs by up to 50%
VOLVO Construction Equipment are releasing a new generation of fuel filters that extend service intervals to 1,000 hours across a wide range of machines. This introduction means Volvo can now offer customers a complete 1,000-hour engine service package.
Niclas Wahlström, head of uptime and parts at Volvo CE, explained: ‘We understand that increasing uptime and reducing maintenance costs are vital objectives for our customers. That’s why our design and engineering teams dedicate many hours to develop high-quality machines and components for a long-lasting performance.
‘Part of this commitment is the introduction of Volvo high-performance fuel filters, meaning we can now offer our customers a complete 1,000-hour engine service package. The result is reduced maintenance requirements and less maintenance costs, meaning customers’ machines stay out on the job site and working their best.’
According to Volvo CE, the longer intervals will save customers up to 50% on maintenance costs and have a positive environmental impact without compromising on component performance or longevity. The 1,000-hour package consists of Volvo Engine Oil VDS-4.5, in conjunction with Volvo high-performance fuel filters.
‘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 TCO,’ concluded Mr Wahlström.
The extended engine service interval is available across a wide range of machines, with operators advised to check with their local Volvo dealer to learn whether their current Volvo equipment qualifies.
Whilst older machines can also benefit from Volvo Engine Oil VDS 4.5 and Volvo high-performance filters, users should adhere to the service intervals defined in their operator’s manual.
