Service technicians know all too well that oil changes fluctuate from machine to machine and vehicle to vehicle, requiring a unique set of skills, instructions, and equipment. Whether that’s a fleet in Yuma, Arizona, or heavy machinery on the assembly line in Detroit, oil changes can be labor-intensive, costly, and potentially messy. And let’s not forget about the workplace and environmental risks that can be associated with changing oil.
Why do these issues occur when engines and machinery are becoming more simplified? The conception and procedures of conducting an oil change have not evolved and lag behind their maintenance counterparts. From construction and manufacturing to municipalities and waste management, industries are long overdue for innovation and design in the oil change process, especially in today’s climate where consumer demand has never been greater and organizational budgets have never been tighter.
The answer to solving the oil change dilemma and have technicians sleep soundly at night can be summed up in one word: standardization.
An oil change can be too complicated, too involved, and too disorderly. By reconstructing the process, you’ll discover unnecessary procedures, which presents an opportunity to simplify its architecture and operation. With a newfound vision of oil changes, ideas are born and new inventions emerge. One of those developments happens to be the QuickFit™ Oil Change System.
Engineered and manufactured for standardization and speed, the QuickFit Oil Change System reimagines the process. It delivers a faster, cleaner, and safer oil change. No pans or filters, or hassling with multiple connection points; instead, the three-step, closed-loop system provides a smooth and efficient oil change experience from start to finish.
Watch how to install the QuickFit Oil Change System video to see the ease and simplicity of installing on a piece of equipment.
At its core, QuickFit utilizes a single connection point that allows oil extraction directly into the final waste containment. That same connection point is then used to refill the system with new oil, reducing the total number of steps in the oil change process. Importantly, standardization reduces the risk of safety hazards or environmental concerns, such as drips, leaks, and spills.
When used accordingly, QuickFit oil changes can be completed in 30 minutes or less while eradicating oil spills and messy cleanup from the equation.
The QuickFit Oil Change System is built on transparency and integrity. Fewer steps and fewer tools for an oil change translates to more time focused on accomplishing business objectives, such as customer uptime.
QuickFit offers simple installation, even on the most convoluted and intricate engines, so you won’t be spending time and resources to get up and running and start seeing the value of QuickFit.
