4 Quick Tips to Keep Your Work Truck Operational:
Caring for your existing work truck is the best way to navigate the current chassis shortage, since purchasing a new vehicle has become very difficult. Follow these tips to make sure you get the maximum amount of hours from your work vehicle.
1. Check your grease fittings regularly
A quick check of your vehicle’s grease fittings will prevent a major issue in the long run. And remember – a little goes a long way. Take a few minutes at the end of each week to make sure your fittings have not been neglected.
2. Exercise your crane
You may not use your crane on a regular basis, however, it’s important to keep it clean and lubricated. This ensures that you’ll be able to move your crane, quickly and efficiently, whenever needed.
3. Adjust the door latches on your mechanics truck
If you’ve ever had water leak into the compartments of your mechanics truck, you know how frustrating it can be! Did you know that you can adjust the many latches on your truck to create a tighter seal and prevent this from happening? Keep rainwater and rust at bay by practicing this preventive measure.
4. Consult your manufacturer
When you’re experiencing an issue with your equipment, go straight to the source. Your manufacturer has a wealth of knowledge, and likely a reliable warranty, to back their product. A quick phone call to your manufacturer often prevents a major emergency.
