Coates Maintenance System

Clear service history

Every Coates machine carries a printed service sticker detailing the machine's service program, when and where the machine was serviced and who it was serviced by.

Important instructions

For small plant, we supply Operating and Safety Instruction sheets at Branch level to advise the customer how to operate the equipment safely.

Logbooks

We also produce a range of logbooks to enable operators to “safety check” the equipment before use, as well as record any faults that might have been found.
