Product Performance+Maintenance=Profit

HOW DOES PRODUCT PERFORMANCE BENEFIT MY BUSINESS?

  • Equipment performing to manufacturer design and specifications increases your profits.
  • The possibility for improved employee productivity.
  • Up to 20% improved fuel economy.

-For example a mower running low compression on 1 cylinder will increase your fuel consumption by up to 20%. 
-A trimmer with a clogged air filter will consume more fuel.

  • Equipment life performs to design expectations.
  • Equipment maintained to specifications performs within original safety feature parameters helps to reduce potential injury for the operator as well as bystanders.
  • Reduced emergency equipment break downs.

-Not many companies really analyze that a break down can cost a company over  $100/employee hour.

  • Proper maintenance and repair = reduced consequential damage on component parts.

HOW DOES PRODUCT PERFORMANCE BENEFIT MY CUSTOMERS?

  • Jobs finished on time per customer expectations.
  • Proper cutting performance saves on increased risk of disease, increased nutrient replenishment. 
    -A properly leveled deck with properly sharpened blades the belts can deliver full even power transfer from the engine. 
    -With sharp blades there will be less tip browning or shredding of the grass resulting in 33% less water requirements.
  • A properly maintained unit performs within the dba ratings per manufacturer’s design. 
    -Several communities and cities have begun implementation of noise abatement ordinances.  Some places you cannot operate a backpack blower over 70 dba.
    -Consideration of this is very customer friendly especially when operating near office or hospital facilities or maybe the baby just went to sleep and the lawn crew has shown up for the weekly maintenance.

Any one of these items will affect customer retention if you neglect them, and you could be handing your customer over to your competition. It is good business practice to set up regularly schedule preventative maintenance programs for your business.  Not only will you increase the life of your equipment, it will have a positive impact on the profitability of your company.
