5 Reasons regular servicing with Jonel is key to success

More and more clients are booking an annual or bi-annual service or calibration for all their hydraulic equipment.

1. Profitability – Save money & reduce lost time

It can take a lot of effort to keep your gear consistently up and running. Even under the best of circumstances, it can be challenging to juggle your plant and maintenance needs.

Not only does planned maintenance help prevent breakdowns on the job (costing both time and money) but servicing can be planned for between scheduled projects, improving productivity. And needless to say, well looked after equipment will last longer and perform better, reducing the need for costly breakdown repairs to machinery, hydraulic tools and new components.

2. Be proactive, not reactive

As in life, when it comes to maintenance, it’s best to address issues before they become problems. Last-minute repairs can be up to 4 times more expensive when you factor in down time etc, so it really pays to invest in a preventative maintenance plan.

From the perspective of both the machinery owner and the plant manager, regular maintenance means zero leakage and high-quality hydraulic performance. To prove the work-readiness of hydraulic equipment, Jonel can issue new test and calibration certificates when hydraulic servicing is completed, and you will also receive an annual email informing you when a calibration or service is due.

3. Perfectionists – We’re hydraulic forensics experts

Sometimes it is glaringly obvious what has gone wrong with hydraulic machinery and tools:

Bent Cylinder

If the cause of an issue isn’t this obvious, no problem. Our workshop repair teams use sophisticated testing equipment to pinpoint the fault, then we’ll get them sorted.

4. Palfinger? Truck hoists? Forklifts? EWP? All in a day’s work

Our hydraulic servicing teams are experts at working with all major brands of truck hoists, including Palfinger, Delta and Edbro. We also work with forklifts and EWP on a regular basis. Getting your leaky hydraulics serviced regularly means you won’t need to fork out for costly replacements.
