Volvo Construction Equipment 7000 Series asphalt pavers purchased in North America are eligible for the Million Ton Guarantee program, which provides manufacturer support for the replacement of auger and conveyor system wear parts for five years.
The program is available on P7110B tracked asphalt pavers and P7170B wheeled asphalt pavers purchased by June 30, 2020. The guarantee begins when the machine is purchased, and customers have 30 days after purchase to enroll in the program.
The program offers three rebuilds as determined by the wear check manual from Volvo CE. Parts will be covered in a tiered approach. The first rebuild will be 100-percent covered by Volvo, the second will be 50-percent covered, and the third at 25 percent. If additional rebuilds are required, Volvo will cover parts at 25 percent with a pre-approved warranty claim.
“Paving contractors work on high-production, deadline-driven projects and have high expectations for their equipment and the service they receive,” said Bill Laing, product manager, road products at Volvo CE. “Volvo shares these expectations, and the Million Ton Guarantee shows our confidence in the quality of our product and our commitment to helping our customers increase their uptime and lower their total cost of ownership.”
The name of the program is based on a U.S. national average of 250,000 tons of asphalt laid per year, totaling slightly more than a million tons over five years or work seasons.
