Mitchell 1 adds web-based programs

Mitchell 1 has completed updates to its suite of web-based software programs for medium- and heavy-duty trucks, providing repair information, trouble code procedures and labor time estimating for model year 2014 vehicles.

Mitchell 1 keeps its software current throughout the year with running changes and adds data for the latest model year vehicles for which information is available, the company says. Subscribers automatically receive new information as it becomes available so they can be sure they have the most current maintenance and repair data to reference.

The Tractor-Trailer.net, Medium-Truck.net, Repair-Connect.net and TruckLabor products provide technical information, including mechanical labor hours, required to diagnose and repair all makes of Class 4-8 trucks. The sites cover vital procedural service information for all makes of vehicles to maximize shop productivity.

Mitchell 1 says thousands of detailed color wiring diagrams are included to help solve complex electrical problems, and full-color photos provide real-world views of many vehicle components and assemblies. TruckLabor is the first comprehensive labor time estimating product for medium- and heavy-duty trucks, allowing service repair facilities access to accurate mechanical labor times for all makes and models from a single, Web-based source.
