Must-Do Machine Maintenance

5-24 maintenance

With the late start to spring this year, hopefully the extra time was used to double and triple check machinery before taking it out for use. There are a few things that should always be examined before bringing out machinery that has been sitting all winter. In case you missed a step, or missed maintenance altogether, check out the quick list below. 

  • Observe fluid levels and cleanliness
  • Look at hoses and belting for signs of wear or cracking
  • Check the steering, wheels, brakes, and gearbox for proper alignment and operation
  • Make sure the exhaust system isn’t blocked by small animal nests or debris
  • Examine tire treads and tire pressure
  • Inspect machine to make sure all safety shields and guards are in place
  • Check safety signage, lights, and directional for travelling on roadways
