Heavy diesel vehicles and earthmoving machinery are at their most cost effective when they are moving. Seems straightforward enough; however, irregular maintenance and servicing can lead to breakdowns and costly repairs if your diesel fleet or earth movers are not properly maintained. This is why it is crucial to have a qualified Perth diesel mechanic regularly service your earthmoving machinery, as downtime means lost money, especially if you are invoicing based on material moved.
Regular servicing is a key part of proper vehicle maintenance, and will ensure your diesel vehicle stays running smoothly for longer. Whether you bought new or used, it’s important to note you don’t have to book servicing appointments with the dealership. A Perth mobile diesel mechanic is able to provide you with the same services and more in comparison to a dealership. Learn why a mobile mechanic beats a dealership for your servicing needs.
There are a number of components that make up your undercarriage to help the machine move and work as required. Maintaining your excavator track components is an important part of extending your machines track life.
Possible Symptoms of track component failure can be:
An old or worn track chain can cause your drive sprocket to wear unevenly. A new drive sprocket on an old chain can cause excessive wear to the chain links and bushes.
Worn track rollers & idlers can cause your tracks to fall off and the track won’t tension correctly.
If your tracked machine needs servicing or repairs, DieselWest can carry out the necessary repairs onsite to suite customer requirements.
