A good maintenance of your construction equipment will avoid you costly repairs
A good way to extend the life of our equipment is to perform essential maintenance in a planned manner
The savings that an avoidable repair means, and the safety that having our equipment in perfect condition will give us, are two of the main factors to take into account when planning its maintenance of your construction and mining equipment.
These are some of the keys to have your equipment updated
In Blumaq we care as much about the health of your machine as we do about your safety and these are, almost always, two factors that go hand in hand, so we will now list some of the keys for a perfect maintenance of your construction equipment.
- Trained operators for a correct driving: An operator who knows how to control and handle his machine correctly will be able to notice possible irregularities that could save us expensive repairs.
- Periodic checks: A simple check before and after each operation can indicate some possible malfunction, and thus, we can anticipate the repair.
- Preventive maintenance: The type of preventive maintenance, more in-depth than periodic checks, and which we can do ourselves, is that done to anticipate the breakdown and thus be able to avoid it as far as possible.
- Electrical systems, axle and gear fluids, and tires are some of the components that we need to pay the most attention to.
Some simple actions such as checking lubricant levels, looking for signs of wear (good lubrication reduces friction) or possible oil leaks, finding an excess of grease on pistons or using the right lubricant for each component, can save us a repair.
The moving part of our machine suffers the most from wear
The components that make up the moving part of our machine are the most exposed to wear and tear and therefore we must be very careful with them as they can be affected over time, by incorrect handling of the operator, vibrations, high temperatures, etc.
Filters, belts and brakes.
They are a fundamental part of your machine, and their correct operation ensures a long life for your machine.
The filters have a very defined function which is to keep the part they protect clean, whether it is a fuel, air or fluid filter, these can accumulate a quantity of dirt, which, if not removed in time, will prevent the system protected by the filter from carrying out its function correctly.
Tires in perfect condition
Checking the correct pressure of the tires, a visual confirmation of the condition of the tires will guarantee you an optimal grip on any surface.
