Suzuki DF140 Service

I have booked my Suzuki DF 140 in for its first 20h service.

I got two very different quotes for the service from my two local Suzuki Dealers.

The first was like this :-

The price for a Suzuki DF140 20 hour service will be around 120 - 130 + VAT. This will include a full inspection of the engine, engine oil and gear oil change, fuel filter change, inspection of propeller, nut and pin and inspection of tappet clearance.

And the second like This :-

The cost from us would be approximately 220.00p This however includes removing bolts as necessary greasing, re-torque etc.

How can i find out what is supposed to be done in a service from an authorised dealer - ie what is the recommended task list and also what is the minimum task list.

My Suzuki df250's first service (20 hours) was 130 ex VAT, I would expect yours to be no more than that. However I am in the channel islands and our labour rate may be slightly cheaper.

I thought that Caradon now had Bob under contract, Bob parks the Zodiac up under the relevant discharge and it saves it from going in the sea.

My first DF140 service was 98.......

The second one was 250
120 of that was apparently labour according to the logsheet I have here.

As Hugh says, it's all in the owners handbook. I am about 4 to 5 months past 12months since the previous service and will be getting it serviced just before christmas as the 200hr service (yes, I have barely used the boat this year - weather and work issues ) which is likely to cost another 250 (great planning around christmas eh).

I am out of warranty now, but will continue to get the thing serviced (despite being stupid expensive) at the local authorised Suzuki dealer.

If you need any more info, let me know.

-Alex
