Maintain Dump Trucks With These 4 Tips, Wailuku, Hawaii

From junk hauling to construction work, dump trucks get plenty of use that often causes them to experience rapid wear and tear. Fortunately, routine upkeep will make sure your heavy haul tucking fleet is clean, safe, and running for many years. Here are a few maintenance tips for your dump trucks.

4 Ways to Maintain Your Dump Trucks

1. Clean the Interior

You should regularly detail the interior of your dump trucks. Vacuum the carpets and upholstery, and replace the air filter to reduce allergens. Keep trash receptacles in the cabin that operators may use to discard drink bottles and snack wrappers.

2. Wash the Exterior

3. Look Under the Hood

The mechanical components of your dump trucks also require regular attention, so be sure to check the tire pressure, brake fluids, lights, and horn before each use. For more complex mechanical components, such as engines and transmissions, hire an experienced local mechanic.

4. Schedule Professional Inspections

Contact a team of mechanics to inspect your dump trucks periodically. They’ll take a look at the suspension systems and hydraulic lift cylinders, and will lubricate the pins and bushings. They’ll also safely clear the hydraulic line of dust buildups and perform repairs as necessary.
