Cut downtime and be more productive by extending your construction equipment life. Proper routine maintenance of your equipment helps maintain the power & performance you expect from your machine and keeps it off the repair bench. 

Key Takeaways

1) Proper construction equipment maintenance helps maintain productivity on the job site.

2) Routine maintenance is more cost-effective than replacing rundown equipment.

3) Having common parts on hand decreases unwanted downtime in the field.

Increase Equipment Longevity

Construction equipment like concrete saws and grinders are subjected to rigorous use in harsh environments. From cutting through extremely hard materials to enduring constant vibrations from grinding, these machines experience substantial wear and tear. Routine maintenance acts as a shield against early aging and performance loss by addressing issues before they escalate. Regular engine checks, lubrication, and timely parts replacement can contribute to the overall longevity of the equipment.

Optimize Equipment Performance

Construction equipment is designed for precision and power. However, optimal performance can only be sustained through regular maintenance. Saw belts, filters, spark plugs, and engine/motor parts are common components to need maintenance. Routine care ensures that these components are in top condition, optimizing the overall performance of the equipment. Calibration, adjustments, and lubrication all contribute to a productive piece of equipment.

Invest in Your Equipment

Routine maintenance may seem like an added expense, however, you will see a long-term benefit. Investing in preventive maintenance is far more cost-effective than dealing with the aftermath of a breakdown. Emergency repairs not only come with higher costs but can also lead to additional expenses like project delays. Proactively maintaining your cut-off saw or grinder can save money in the long run and enhance overall productivity and profitability.
