An effective maintenance program lengthens machine life, keeps your equipment productive, increases resale value and reduces unscheduled downtime.
WHAT SHOULD YOU INCLUDE IN YOUR MAINTENANCE PROGRAM?
1. PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE
2. SOS FLUID ANALSIS
Analyze oil, coolant and hydraulic fluids for wear indicators. Talk to your Cat® dealer about your results.
Regularly look for signs—smoke, leaks, lagging performance. Identify causes and service or repair
4. REPAIR MANAGEMENT
Plan and select repair options, schedule major repairs and control costs.
5. OPERATOR TRAINING
Train your operators. Operating practices dramatically impact performance and component wear. Teach your operators to help reduce operating costs.
6. SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE
Good scheduling helps you make sure critical maintenance gets done and keeps your operation as productive as possible.
7. RECORD KEEPING
Record keeping consists of full documentation on machine history, component life and cost information. It helps you identify high-cost or problem areas, track work flow, control costs and increase machine resale value.
