Dump the downtime with turbo-charged turnaround on repairs

OWNERS of Komatsu construction and mining vehicles have been assured that issues with their diesel fuel injection systems do not need to cause them undue downtime.
That’s according to Warren Hauser, Manager at Reef Fuel Injection Services in Germiston, who said, “We are the only workshop in South Africa that is authorised to repair and remanufacture the injection system on Komatsu’s popular 785 dump truck, for instance. We can also fully remanufacture both the high-pressure diesel pump and the injector of the Komatsu 6D170’s engine family.”
He added that the company’s comprehensive knowledge and experience of the Komatsu diesel injection range and good parts availability contributed to fast turnaround times.
“This reduces the risk of any disruption in the supply chain, like we have recently experienced with the COVID-19 pandemic. We have an extensive range of new and remanufactured common rail injectors in stock.”
He said specialised equipment allows the company to conduct detailed tests and give customers accurate reports on the complete diesel fuel injection system. Further reducing downtime is the company’s field service, which can attend to fuel injection related issues in the field.
“Setting us apart is our investment and expertise in Bosch and Hartridge OEM-authorised equipment for testing and calibration. With this technology we can generate reports on most electronic parts and can share this data with customers.”
He said high-quality repair and remanufacturing of fuel injection systems to OEM standards remained the most cost-effective option for Komatsu customers. “The real benefits, though, are the improved uptime and the reliability of the finished product.”
