Spot Check

by | Sep 12, 2022 | Press

One of the easiest ways to keep your fleet on the job is a simple, daily once-over of your vehicle to ensure proper performance and, potentially, save a lot of costly repairs down the road. We recommend a quick five-minute inspection that includes:

• Fluid levels – Oil, transmission, hydraulic, oil, coolant, and windshield washer (if applicable)
• System Check – Steering, exhaust, fifth-wheel
• Lights – Dash, dome, turning, hazard, headlights, marker, backup, aux backup, brake, and strobe (if applicable)
• Sound -Radio, horn, backup alarm
• Parts – Fuel tank, engine belts, hoses and wiring, trailer lines, catwalk, lift cylinders, doors and latches, tires, gauges, and windshield wipers

We also recommend giving a quick cleaning to the windows, mirrors, and cab interior to promote the best level of safety practices for both you and your crew. A proactive approach to maintenance helps avoid accidents, saves money, and ensures the safety of your drivers.
