Yard Truck Refurbishment Program

Kalmar Ottawa Refurbishment Program

Candidate Yard Truck: Normally the customer will supply the Ottawa Yard Truck to be a candidate for refurbishing, although our Used Truck Sales Department will from time to time have available trucks for that purpose. The best candidate trucks will be older vehicles that are fully depreciated and their reliability for service is now questionable because of age and wear.

Qualify and Quantify: Our extensive program is not just a coat of fresh exterior paint, although that is indeed included. The following pages will list in detail 128 areas and specific items that are performed in what we call the "Standard Refurbishment" program or "REFURB". We begin the process with a thorough inspection to determine if the unit is a viable candidate for the program. Then the unit is evaluated to determine necessary work above and beyond the standard program. Fluid samples are pulled from the engine, transmission, and rear differential and rushed to a laboratory for analysis, while our certified technicians inspect other components. Upon completion of this process, we make recommendations and provide an estimate to you for consideration.

Qualify and Quantify: The production program is seven weeks long, which includes one week in paint. The truck is thoroughly cleaned and disassembled; we begin the refurbishing process and can now conduct even more intrusive inspections in the areas not visible in an assembled state. Areas of the truck are then rebuilt, repaired and necessary parts replaced. The interior of the cab is completely stripped, cleaned, and painted prior to installing all new headliner, dash panels, switches, gauges, controls, matting, steering wheel, and seat. This process allows us to install fresh new paint to areas hidden by these components including all cab glass and window channels. The truck is reassembled and prepared for the Body Shop exterior painting. We paint the frame, wheels, and cab in this process. Final assembly with new parts is done after the exterior painting so that no over spray paint gets on the new handles, mirrors and other such items. The completed truck finally under goes three days of extensive testing and inspection at which time it is put through a rough work testing in addition to cosmetic inspection. Final adjustments are made, fittings are tightened, and then new Ottawa Decals are installed. The truck is now ready for it's second life cycle at your facility.

Delivery: Included in a packet inside your new Refurbished Ottawa Yard Truck will be materials explaining the maintenance, warranty and contact people. The next page will discuss some of these issues for your information.

Experience: Buckeye Western Star is an authorized Kalmar Ottawa Yard Truck Dealer and has been awarded the "Ottawa Premier Dealer" award several times. We have rebuilt wrecks, burned units and started over hauling used trucks years ago. The current program we offer to refurbish a truck was designed and written with many years of experience. The program takes the guesswork and hit and miss concepts out of the scenario by standardizing many parts and components in a very defined and elaborate process that we have developed. We have had this program in place since 2002 and we continue to add benefit and improvement to the process by thorough production record keeping and evaluation by our dedicated Refurbishment Crew and management.
