How to Change Your Engine and Machine Oil Faster, Cleaner and Safer

How to change your engine and Machine Oil Faster, Cleaner and SaferChanging the oil in your engines and machines sounds simple right? But we know the process can be complicated, messy and dangerous.

Even routine maintenance oil changes bring challenges such as:

  • Cramped engine compartments making access difficult, leading to safety and ergonomic risks for workers.
  • Having multiple access points that result in cross-contamination.
  • Removing a filter full of oil becomes difficult; leading to spills, environmental contamination, and cleanliness issues.
  • Each piece of equipment is different and may require a unique set of instructions and/or specialized training.
  • Inability to use the same oil changing system across multiple markets and machines.
  • Potential technician exposure to hot fluids.

The QuickFit™ solution

To alleviate these time-consuming challenges, our engineers designed the QuickFit™ Oil Change system -- a standardized, all-in-one solution that revolutionizes the process with a faster, cleaner and safer way to change the oil in engines and machines. The QuickFit system provides an accessible, single point connection that allows oil extraction directly into the final waste containment. That connection point is then used to refill the system with new oil. This reduces the total number of steps in the oil change process and eliminates any risk of safety hazards or spills. With less variability during routine maintenance, you can change engine and machine oil in three quick steps without ever spilling a drop!
