Potential Disruption at French Ports ( IMPORT AND EXPORT 

Over the last few days, the news headlines have been focusing on the UK / French political relationship and the threat of possible disruption this may cause. 

It is possible that your shipments to or from France may be affected by French action at short notice. Any action would also have an affect on goods transiting France to or from Europe.


We are monitoring the situation closely and will issue updates as and when we have positive information of any action being taken. We do ask however, that you bear in mind the possible French action locking ports to UK ships, possible disruption via the channel tunnel and increasing checks by French Customs on shipments travelling inbetween the UK and France for exports and imports.


We intend to continue with our normal departure schedule. However, transit times and vehicle availability may be elongated if French action is implemented.

Sorry we hope to have better news soon

 

 

Perkins parts UK

So if you are lucky enough to be in the USA ..

Engine manufacturer Perkins said it is equipping rental company technicians with a new tool designed to enable them to more confidently identify and service Perkins-powered machines in their fleets through a major overhaul of its web-based Rental Support Portal.

“As engine technologies continue to grow in complexity, the support of engine manufacturers is critical in helping rental companies increase uptime and lower fleet maintenance costs,” said Corey Berry, rental sales and marketing manager for Perkins. “We’ve restructured and updated our Rental Support Portal to provide technicians with streamlined access and expanded resources, that keeps equipment on rent and ultimately, helps to improve return on investments.”

The newly updated site provides easy and quick access to Perkins Vision – a series of step-by-step instructional videos for technicians – as well as basic engine maintenance guides, complex diagnostic procedures, exclusive technical information, and numerous training modules. Free for rental technicians enrolled in the Perkins Rental Support Program, the website has been upgraded to be easily viewed and navigated on almost any device, whether it’s a mobile phone, smart tablet, or desktop computer.

The Perkins Rental Support Portal offers rental-specific training in English, Spanish, French and Portuguese, as well as numerous online service training courses on specific Perkins tools, product support systems and engine model lines, while enabling direct warranty submissions.

The newly updated website also provides engine-specific manuals through a serial number lookup, as well as a detailed guide to the Electronic Service Tool (EST), which provides vital engine health and performance analytics.

Additionally, the Perkins Rental Support Portal provides technicians with extensive troubleshooting guides, service and parts manuals and a service parts lookup that helps to maintain and repair Perkins engines used in any application.

Slew ring or swing bearing maintenance

UK Construction Parts can help if you are in need of a new swing slew bearing.  But did you know more than 90 percent of slewing ring failures can be avoided if machine owners simply perform a few simple maintenance tips?  Some of the suggestions may seem like common sense but its worth taking a look.

Grease regularly : Apply a lot of extreme-pressure grease to the fittings around the bearing where the machine’s service manual instructs you to.

Purge with grease : Pump grease into the bearing until you see old grease squeeze past the seal. This will help push debris out of the bearing.

Inspect the grease : Rub some of the purged grease. If you see or feel grit or metal chips in it, you may have a bearing problem.

Do not overload :  Do not push your loads over the limit.  A depression of even 1/1000 on the swing bearing will eventually end up causing failure.

Avoid repetitive, heavy loads : Lifting with the boom and undercarriage in the same position can put a dimple in the bearing race close to the uneven load.  If possible, change the angle as often as possible.

Predict failure and repair the bearing : If the turning torque of the bearing increases substantially, or if you notice a clicking or grinding noise when rotating, grease the unit and have some of the purged lubricant analysed for metal debris.

Play can indicate a problem and will show up as a lack of stiffness in the extended boom. Free play magnified over the length of the boom allows it to rock back and forth under load. Check bearing clearance with a dial indicator that measures how much the structure tilts when the boom is loaded.

No matter how much you inspect your swing bearing, it’s eventually going to wear out.  However, maintaining the part could be the difference between getting yours rebuilt or spending the money on a new one.  When it is time to replace your swing bearing, give UK Construction Parts a call.  We have high quality branded swing bearings in available for prices way less than what you will pay for a new Genuine swing  bearing.
