The national average for washing parts is one-half hour per day. Ask yourself if this number is higher. Remember, this may include not only a solvent tank but also pressure washing, and aerosol cleaners. Aerosol cleaners can be very expensive. Be sure to be realistic about how much your business is really using.
Some people don’t want to use shop rate in the equation because they are billing this time out to their customers. If this is your case, we suggest you use actual employee costs. The results will still be impressive. Remember there are more to employee costs than just wages; benefits, uniforms, and other overhead costs should all be factored in.
There are between 20 and 22 monthly production days in a five-day workweek.
Remember to factor all shifts if applicable.
Manual VS Automatic See the Savings
The national average for washing parts is one half-hour per day for every technician.
Most repair shops charge $75 to $150 per hour for a technician’s services.
That means that a half-hour of cleaning parts could be costing your business $37 to $75 per day, or $750 to $1500 per month FOR EACH TECHNICIAN!
Based on a smaller 3-man shop, charging $100 per hour for labor and working 20 days per month, a small top-load Cuda would pay for itself in just 2 months!
If that same shop needed a larger front loading Cuda, it would pay for itself in less than 4 months – IN LABOR ALONE!
Add that to the monthly savings by eliminating your solvent tank rental & disposal fees, and you can see how switching to a Cuda Automatic Parts Washer equals more money in your pocket! Along with eliminating the harsh chemicals and making your technicians happy!
