Heavy machinery with its attachments, like earthmoving, drilling or breaking adapters, need to undergo a regular, daily, and scheduled maintenance to last longer. JCB machine parts undergoing routine checks have been confirmed to be cost-efficient, damage-free for a longer period of time than any other machinery accessories, especially if not cared for.
Every well-trained machinery operator knows that it is of utmost importance to keep the carrier and its accessories clean, dirt and grime free. Daily cleaning is unavoidable if you want to keep your machinery working properly and efficiently.
Even work accidents can be avoided if a simple daily cleaning of machine parts is followed. Always act in accordance with the manufacturer’s advice on how to clean the adapters properly to avoid any damage by using harsh cleaning chemicals. Keeping the adapters clean, keeps your maintenance costs low and prevents any unexpected workflow interruptions.
Most companies assign a specific heavy duty carrier to a specific operator. If you are a contractor, a successful company of many building sites to attend to, with the workflow of more than 12 hours a day, more operators will be used to complete the job tasks. Every one of them needs to be well trained, prepared, how to skillfully use the carriers and their adapters.
In this way, you can ensure that the machinery will be in good hands, well taken care of, and any simple work accidents avoided. Only a skillful, trained, experienced operator should be behind the wheel of heavy machinery to mind any disruption of workflow.
Due to heavy work exercised by the attachments like a drill, hydraulic breaker, or earthmoving adapter, the friction may easily cause damage to the hydraulic systems and its parts. Regular greasing with lubricants determined by the manufacturer makes them work properly, without damage for a longer time. But handle with care – too much lubricant causes grime build up and potential unexpected breakage of the parts, or the vehicle.
Avoiding Accidents and Injuries
A well trained and prepared machinery driver is expected to be a skillful driver, predict any potential damages based on the terrain and weather conditions he is working under. Even driving a steep hill should be taught to a carrier operator, under which angle and how quickly to move the vehicle to avoid any minor or even major accidents and exposing himself or coworkers to danger, maybe even life-threatening situation.
Maintenance of the Adapters
Always consider the regular daily maintenance. Even simple damage, if not taken care of, could cause major destruction of your attachment, or even the whole machinery. Scheduled maintenance, as given per information by the manufacturer, must be undergone without any delay. As already mentioned, a clean, checked, maintained attachment and carrier work properly, damage free and your operator’s team is protected and any minor injuries or accidents can be avoided.
Correct Tools to Attach
Do not underestimate the importance of the right accessory for the right carrier. JCB machine parts always come with a list with assigned tools to be used in a proper way with a specific vehicle. Follow the instructions to prevent any work disruptions, accidents or injuries.
