Whether it’s a construction site or a large mining operation, worksites and their workers often rely on heavy machinery to do the brunt of the labor: lifting heavy objects, moving large piles of dirt, boring and drilling into the earth, transporting smaller vehicles between different sites, etc. With all this responsibility, it’s crucial that your machines be running in tip-top shape at all times. This ensures that the workers are safe, the task is completed efficiently, and the tools have a long lifespan.
But it doesn’t take a head-on collision or a catastrophic equipment failure for the machinery to lose its edge. More frequently, it’s a lack of proper maintenance that precedes its downfall. Worksites are typically littered with dirt, dust, sand, pebbles, and other debris. If these natural contaminants were to get under the hood and gum up the engine, then you’d have to spend money on maintenance and repairs. In the worst-case scenario, the engine is too far gone and you’re down a machine.
So how do you prevent this from happening? Engine contamination is a real problem that needs to be addressed and prepared for. It’s important that worksite managers know the best practices for caring for their vehicles. Let’s take a look at a few now.
