START YOUR INSPECTION FROM THE GROUND
The first part of any preventive maintenance checklist should be done from outside the machine.
- For example, check for broken lights, fluid leaks and everything on the undercarriage.
The inspections you do will vary depending on the exact specifications of the machine.
Once the exterior of the machine has been examined, the next step is to look under the hood.
- For example, belts, filters and hoses
Finally, you will want to inspect the cab of the equipment.
- Inside and outside the cab inspections
Preventive maintenance can help catch small problems before they become big ones that might completely sideline your equipment. It might take a few extra minutes every day, but it’s worth it in the long run.
