# of Inspection Points
Excavators 70 Forklifts 79
Skid Steers/Compact Track Loaders
Trained, Certified Technicians
All machines are serviced by our trained, certified technicians, on-site or in our shops. And we don’t only service the equipment we sell—we can service any brand that’s in your fleet.
Each type of equipment has a thorough inspection regimen that is strictly followed to ensure that all appropriate equipment functions are inspected to identify any possible problems. Ask about fluid analysis with each inspection to identify potential issues, based on the presence of metals and contaminants in the machine’s fluids.
Custom Hydraulic Inspections
Even the most experienced operators can’t detect hydraulic system efficiency loss until it reaches 16% – 20%. To protect against such losses, we recommend that machines depending on efficient hydraulic systems undergo a Custom Hydraulic Service inspection every 12 months or 2,000 hours. The service includes engine and hydraulic system performance tests, hydraulic oil sampling and a walkaround inspection. All results are compared against new machines to detect wear in your components and repair minor problems before a major failure occurs.
Undercarriage Maintenance Schedule inspections at regular intervals to spot problems ■ Monitor your undercarriage routinely ■ Don’t delay repairs or replacements on undercarriage components ■ Install CELT to double wear life ■ Any make, any model
Groff Tractor’s technicians are trained to identify undercarriage problems before major repairs are required. By measuring the thickness of the undercarriage components, our technicians can predict how long your undercarriage will last before replacements are needed. During preventive maintenance service, we can include undercarriage evaluations at an additional charge.
Undercarriage Tips to Reduce Wear
Extend the life of your undercarriage by following a few simple rules. • Double Wear Life with CELT CELT is CASE Extended Life Track that can more than double the wear life of a standard lubricated track design. With CELT, a hardened bushing is placed over a standard type track bushing. With this configuration, the larger bushing is free to rotate on the smaller bushing, reducing the scrubbing action between the bushing and the sprocket, which doubles the wear life. • Adjust the track for correct tension Loose tracks can detrack. Over-tightening can cause power loss, excessive roller and idler wear, and could tear the tracks. Refer to your operator’s manual for track inspection and tensioning procedures. • Use the narrowest shoe possible Wider shoes can cause problems maneuvering by sticking out farther and making it more difficult to turn. Wider shoes may be necessary, however, to keep the machine from sinking in extremely wet conditions. • Keep the undercarriage clean of mud and debris The accumulation of mud and dirt around the undercarriage can interfere with proper operation by changing the pitch, which changes the component engagement and leads to faster wear. Knock away any debris every day after use, then wash the tracks thoroughly with water.
• Minimize high operating speeds Higher speeds cause more wear on the undercarriage. Use the slowest possible operating speed for the job. • Alternate the turning direction Continuous turning to the same side can cause asymmetrical wear and accelerate wear for sprocket teeth, track tread, guide lugs and roller flanges. • Inspect your equipment visually every day for signs of wear Check for cracks, bends and breaks on components. Look for wear on bushings, sprockets and rollers. If you see any components that are shiny, there’s probably an alignment problem. Make sure nuts and bolts are not loose, which can cause abnormal wear by interfering with proper movement of parts. • Control track spinning when filling the bucket Use loader hydraulics to penetrate into the material to reduce track spinning. Unnecessary spinning of the tracks can accelerate wear and cause cuts in the tracks.

Fluid Analysis Analyzing system fluids reveals actual internal conditions ■ Contaminant levels predict component failures accurately ■ Maintenance intervals can be dictated by contaminant levels in fluids to determine when to replace filters and change oil ■ Oil analysis records prove your equipment has been maintained and help increase resale value ■ Any make, any model
Groff Tractor offers fluid analysis kits to monitor the internal health of your equipment. Performing fluid analysis at regular intervals ensures that potential problems will be spotted as early as possible.
What Is Fluid Analysis?
By extracting fluids from several areas in your equipment and analyzing the level of contaminants in the fluids, potential problems with component failure can actually be predicted. As components wear, microscopic pieces will appear in the fluids throughout the machine’s parts. By analyzing which metals are appearing where and in what concentration, the remaining life of each component can actually be predicted, so that you can anticipate when major repairs may be necessary.
Service and Repair Recommendations
By evaluating the results of your machine’s fluid analysis,
Groff Tractor can provide guidance on necessary repairs and filter and oil change intervals.
The fluid analysis laboratories that Groff Tractor uses are ISO 17025 A2LA accredited, which is the highest level of quality certification for testing laboratories by the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation. You can be confident that the fluid analysis results are accurate, repeatable, and backed by stringent laboratory standards.
Manufacturers recommend sampling intervals for each model. Also consider how critical each piece of equipment is to your production in determining sampling frequency. You may want to reduce the hours between sampling periods for equipment operating under more stressful conditions.

Foam Filled Tires No more flat tires, even in the most hazardous environments ■ Avoid downtime caused by flat tires ■ Foam filled tires last 2 to 5 times longer Tires filled with Arnco’s patented flatproofing material roll right over spikes, scrap metal, nails, rocks and more without ever going flat. Your tires will last longer and perform better filled with Arnco’s liquid polyurethane formula, because it runs much smoother and colder than other fill products.
Save with Foam Filled Tires
Tires that replace air with foam last two to five times longer than standard tires. As a result the full tread life is realized before it’s necessary to purchase a replacement. They also eliminate downtime from flat tires and unexpected tire replacement costs.
Quality for Any Application
Arnco’s foam filled tires are ready to go at a moment’s notice and work even in the most adverse weather conditions. The University of Alaska has tested the tires to operate at 70°F below zero. Three grades are available to meet your particular load, ride and traction needs. • RePnew®—For medium deflection, best for most conditions • SuperFlex®—For maximum deflection, approximates an air-filled ride • HeviDuty®—For minimum deflection under heavy loads

Extended Warranties Protect your equipment with an extended warranty
What Is an Extended Warranty?
An extended warranty provides a longer warranty on your machine beyond the period that comes with original warranty for your equipment. It includes all the genuine OEM parts and the service performed by factory trained technicians that your original warranty covers. We work with EPG Insurance to make sure you have a high quality extended warranty contract you can trust.
Why Buy an Extended Warranty?
It protects you against the expense of unexpected repairs. Also, resale value is higher, because the plan can usually be transferred to the new owner.
What Equipment Is Eligible?
New Equipment Add your extended warranty to your financing when you purchase any eligible equipment. You can purchase your extended warranty any time during the warranty period at standard new equipment rates. New equipment plans can be transferred to a new owner, which can boost its resale value.
Used Equipment Used equipment that is less than seven years old and has less than 7,000 hours at the time of registration* can usually be covered. An oil test for equipment with over 3,000 hours determines final eligibility. Most brands are eligible for coverage.
Finance Itâ€”Payments can be financed through retail installment contracts. Lease Itâ€”Add extended warranty to your lease agreement.
Discounts are sometimes available for equipment covered by government contracts. Ask if your equipment qualifies.
* Reimbursement rates vary with the type of equipment and equipment manufacturer.
