Here at General Kinematics, we design our equipment for 24/7 uptime. Able to endure decades of high demand, GK units are known for requiring very little maintenance. However, Murphy’s law or “anything that can go wrong, will go wrong” can strike at any time. Don’t let one replacement part failure snowball into a full-blown shutdown. Always have critical spare parts on hand or, as any former scout would tell you, “always be prepared”.

Having spare parts on hand can seem like an excessive, or unwarranted expense, however, much like an insurance policy, it is quite fiscally responsible. Think of the expense downtime could cause you. If you don’t have the parts on hand you will be forced to wait for them to be shipped, causing days of downtime not to mention the additional cost of expedited shipping.

To avoid these expenses all together it is always preferred to have your equipment checked regularly for any wear and tear and keep critical spare parts on hand.

  • Set up a bi-weekly check up to look for signs of wear and tear that could lead to a necessary replacement.
  • Refer to your GK Spare Parts list to determine what critical spares to keep on hand.
  • Stick to your plan for maximum uptime!

Remember, the best way to avoid downtime is to see it coming.

General Kinematics is dedicated to providing you the highest uptime and keeping your equipment running smoothly. This is why each individual piece of General Kinematics equipment comes with a list of critical spares to have in stock. If you are interested in obtaining a copy of this Spare Parts List for your GK equipment, contact us and we will provide you with one!

For your convenience GK always keeps a complete inventory of proprietary parts on hand. We make equipment that you can depend on but you are the key to a smoothly running operation.  Like Benjamin Franklin said: “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”

Save the day! Prepare your critical spares.
