Healthy Equipment Maintenance

We’ve all heard the saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away,” but did you know that preventive maintenance and routine checkups are necessary to keep your contractors’ equipment healthy, too?

When developing a maintenance program, the best tool to reference is the owner’s manual for each piece of equipment.The owner’s manual generally includes a section that outlines the recommended service plan.

When it comes to equipment, the number of operating hours is often the basis for periodic servicing. Logging a machine’s operating hours on the first day of each month helps to keep this schedule on track.

Preparing for a seasonal changeover in work often means putting equipment in storage. Before saying goodbye for the season, treat your equipment to an oil change and thorough cleaning!

This is also a good time for a checkup. Remember to check filters, spark plugs, grease, fluids and batteries. Gas-powered items should be run until the engine is out of gas and shuts off. Storage preparation should also include repair of broken parts, so you can avoid rust or further damage.

Indoor storage is the best way to keep your equipment safe from whatever Mother Nature may have in store for you! If indoor storage is not an option, consider water-resistant tarps to cover your items securely.

Equipment and tools are an investment, and as a contractor you should protect that investment. Remember: An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. As we begin the winter season, seasonal maintenance and storage preparation is critical to keeping your equipment healthy.
