New Shire Service Videos launched at Crick Boat Show

Published on: 24/05/2019


Barrus will be launching a brand-new series of servicing videos for its range of Shire canal engines at Crick Boat Show this year.

Giving Shire engine owners the information that they need to reduce down-time and keep their engine properly maintained, a series of service videos has been produced to sit alongside the entire engine range of 15hp-90hp. These videos have been designed to guide owners through various servicing tasks such as:

  •          Changing the Air Filter
  •          Adjusting the Alternator Belts
  •          Changing the Engine Oil and Oil Filter
  •          Changing the Fuel Filter
  •          Changing the Gearbox Oil

Throughout the videos, Technical Support Engineer, Richard Cooke, guides Shire engine owners through these tasks and gives ‘top tips’ to ensure that Shire owners feel confident and comfortable carrying out tasks within their skill level, and that the work is done to industry standard.

Richard noticed the requirement for these videos after receiving a number of requests from Shire owners for instructions on how to carry out these service procedures.

“We are aware that our customers like to be proactive with their Shire engine and carry out basic maintenance works,” commented Richard.

“So, following these requests, we recognised the opportunity to arm our customers with the tools required to carry out the work to a high standard and ensure their engine runs for longer. As we are the first in the market to create these videos, it will be great to see how they go down at the show and gain feedback so that we can continue to improve our levels of customer service.”

The Shire Service Videos are available to view on YouTube and the Barrus website, alongside Service Sheets, Parts lists and Manuals for each engine. Our network of authorised dealers are also on hand to offer specialised technical assistance.

During the show, the Service Videos will also be given out to Shire customers on USB sticks. Visit stand Q36 for more information.
