4 Tips to Keep Heavy Equipment Running

4 Tips to Keep Heavy Equipment RunningHeavy equipment is a real backbone of such industries as construction, mining, agriculture and more. Such machines, intended for hard work in the field, are susceptible to wear and tear, breakdowns, and various damages. Due to the size and complexity of heavy equipment, repairing even minor damage can be extremely costly. Maintenance and regular inspection of heavy equipment fleet is essential in preventing problems and financial losses. The following tips can be very useful for ensuring long and efficient life of heavy equipment.

Cleaning routine

One of the simplest solutions to keep heavy equipment in a good working is its regular cleaning. Dirt and dust can speed up processes like rusting, clog filters and vents, as well as damage any leading components. Heavy equipment fleet needs a schedule of cleaning, pressure washing and some additional cleaning procedures like cleaning the engine.

Stick to equipment’s limits

Operators work with machines regularly and they are the front line of identifying any problems. Not only should they know how to operate a particular type of heavy equipment, but also know how to do it safely, without risks and exceeding restrictions, established loads and norms. It should be a part of operators’ training. Pushing machinery beyond its limits shortens its life, as well as increases the chances of accidents.

Storage issue

For a long service life heavy equipment needs special space for storage outside working hours. Adverse weather conditions could damage it, as well as leaving heavy equipment outside is unreliable. Also it is important to take care of correct movement of heavy equipment to the storage place.

Involvement of modern technologies
