Policy on parts sales for equipment modified or built by others: When orders for parts are received at Kimwood, our parts department relies on in-house historical files and information provided by the person placing the order. It is impossible for Kimwood to be aware of any and all modifications previously made to Kimwood equipment after leaving the plant unless Kimwood was involved in the modifications. While Kimwood maintains historical files on most equipment previously manufactured by Kimwood or, on product lines now represented by Kimwood, our sales department is finding that field modifications to Kimwood equipment by others is rendering portions of our files / prints / specifications / tolerances / etc., to be incorrect. As a result, occasional parts ordered for Kimwood equipment that has been rebuilt or modified by others is resulting in incorrect parts being supplied rendering the OEM parts non-useable by the purchaser. In light of this Kimwood is requesting that each customer be very careful when ordering parts and that any modifications made by others be divulged at the time of order placement. If in doubt please ask questions, define the required parts carefully, and let our parts department know if you or others have made modifications to this particular part of the equipment. Photographs, sketches with critical dimensions are helpful.
The Kimwood’s parts department will assist you as best they can with the information provided. However, if Kimwood determines that modifications were made to the equipment or the equipment was originally built or rebuilt by others, rendering parts received from Kimwood useless, it will be at the customer’s expense to reorder and cover all replacement and shipping charges to remedy the situation. At the discretion of Kimwood, Kimwood will determine if credit will be allowed on the incorrect parts.
Past Due Accounts: Payment of invoices is considered past due if payment is not made within 30 days of the date of the invoice. Any past due balances may result in a change of credit terms. A 2% month service charge on past due accounts will be charged.

Special packaging for rail, water or export shipment, unless specifically noted in the quotation, will be an additional costs paid by the purchaser.
Delivery: Kimwood shall not be liable for any delay in the delivery of parts. The Kimwood product lines consist of thousands of individual manufactured and or purchased parts dating back many years. While some parts are carried in stock most are custom built as required. Many times what may appear as a simple parts order requires much research through old files by Kimwood personnel to determine the correct part for the customer’s equipment.
In order for Kimwood to determine the correct parts we ask that you provide the following information when requesting parts:
Kimwood recommends that each customer consider the stocking of custom-made spare parts at their plant for emergencies. Kimwood has available for certain equipment recommended spare parts stocking lists.
Loss or Damage in Shipment: Kimwood’s responsibility for delivery ends upon release of the parts to the carrier. Should a shortage occur or an item arrives in damaged condition, do not sign a receiving slip without noting shortages or describing damages. Proceed to place a claim with the carrier promptly. Kimwood will be glad to assist with such claims as necessary.
Same Day Stock Parts Delivery: Kimwood will ship on the same day of order placement orders for “LARGE” stock parts received prior to 10 AM in the morning for an additional fee. Large order stock parts are defined as Kimwood parts that typically require special packaging and or crating. While Kimwood will guarantee the same day delivery, the actual arrival date at the customer’s site will be dependent on the carrier.
NOTE: The same day stock parts delivery program is applicable to “larger” parts with larger parts defined as Kimwood parts which typically require special packaging and or crating. Small parts easily packaged and typically sent via UPS do not fall into this category.

Custom Manufactured Parts Priority Delivery: Kimwood will enter into its main production schedule for immediate processing under priority status a custom parts order for manufactured non-stock parts. The estimated ship date of the part will be dependent upon the actual part on order and will be determined at the time of order placement.

All custom manufactured parts will be shipped UPS next–day, size permitting. NOTE: The fee for custom manufactured parts priority delivery is calculated at 5% of the list price or $50.00, the greater of the two.
