Preseason Checklist

Follow these preseason best practices to ensure your machines and business are ready for the busy season. Have your equipment checked now to avoid big problems later.

Schedule maintenance inspections
In order to maximize uptime during the peak construction season, it's important to take the time to ensure your machines have all maintenance issues handled before the busiest time of the year begins. Preseason inspections and maintenance go a long way to ensure you are working at full capacity when you need to be.

Our typical inspection includes:

  • Operational test
  • Lube chassis
  • Drain water and sediment
  • Check fluid levels and adjust
  • Change engine oil and filter
  • Check and adjust chains
  • Clean front and rear axle breathers
  • Change fuel filters
  • Engine oil analysis
  • Change hydraulic filters
  • Change inline fuel filter
  • Check fan belt tension
  • Lubricate attachment coupler
  • Grease slides and post
  • Clean battery/check levels
  • Clean spark arresting muffler
  • Repack front wheel bearings

Note: Our inspections follow manufacturer's guidelines specific to each model.

Check wear parts inventory
Reduce downtime by checking which wear parts you have now. By keeping key wear parts on hand for your equipment, you can ensure it will be easier to maintain your machines during the peak season. For all machines to be operating at their best, we recommend maintaining inventory on the following parts:

  • Filters
  • Hoses
  • Belts
  • Tires
  • Blade edges
  • Bucket teeth
  • Hydraulic fluid
  • Oil
  • Batteries

Arrange service workshops
Keeping your equipment in top working condition ultimately comes down to making sure your employees understand the best practices for maintenance. Our service workshops help your team learn the proper way to maintain your machines and ensure they are working at their best. We'll teach you all the basics for maintaining your equipment properly, including:

  • Engine maintenance
  • Undercarriage maintenance
  • Attachments—Use, safety and maintenance
  • Parts options—New, used and remanufactured
