“Oil changes are faster, and no oil is spilled on the floor. Adaptors on the en- gines allow us to quick-connect a hose that blows air at 120 psi, to evacuate the old oil out of the entire engine. When the system shuts off, the mechanic puts a new, dry oil filter on, pushes a button, and the appropriate amount of oil is pumped in.” The Lancaster staff also appreciates the radiant heating in the garage floor


that extends 10 feet outside of the facility. In winter, after the doors are opened to move buses, the shop heats up almost instantly. “We stay drier because the ice and snow that drips off the buses dries up in just a few minutes on the heated floor,” Phillips noted. “The bus dries, too, so we don’t need raincoats to get under them and work. To combat water accumulating in the pits, the lifts have an automatic air pump that senses water and pumps it out to the oil separator.” In addition, the general atmosphere around the garage is more cheerful,


Feldmeyer said. “Our mechanics no longer feel like they’re working in a dungeon,” she commented. “It’s a more efficient workspace. They’re able to accomplish more and feel better about coming to work each day. Our work environment greatly affects how we feel and perform.”

WE REALLY DO MEAN


FULL SERVICE


With radiators, DPFs, EGRs and more than 30,000 exhaust parts, it’s no wonder Auto-jet is the choice of school bus systems coast to coast.
