Heavy Equipment needs to be inspected and serviced on a regular basis. Without these routine inspections and services the equipment fails – and often fails badly.
Inspections are often carried out daily with services carried out on monthly, bi-monthly or a quarterly basis. Many heavy equipment manuals determine service routines based on hours used. As a heavy equipment operator, your task is often to carry out the daily and weekly inspections.
Servicing on the other hand requires skilled mechanics. Changing the oil can be an easy task. Inspecting the oil for signs of wear and tear can help to prevent long term damage own the track.
Having a regular service goes beyond just changing the oil. Brake and hydraulic fittings need to be checked as do safety issues. Where signs of wear and tear are evident, the component can be repaired or replaced quickly and easily. This often prevent more expensive repairs further down the track.
Basic maintenance is included in most of our training programs. You will learn enough to understand the requirements to successfully complete a safety inspection prior to starting a job each day.
