Proven Results

An operator of Waukesha 7042 engines sustained a catastrophic failure. In response, the Odessa team dispatched a service crew immediately to tear down and inspect the unit in an effort to decipher the problem. The 7042 had sustained extensive damage to the crankshaft. It was brought to the Odessa shop for an overhaul that was completed in under two weeks. The Odessa team replaced the down unit overnight with a unit exchange (UX) engine from our swing engine inventory. Kudos to the Odessa team for supporting the customer quickly and efficiently.
