It’s hot out there! Is your equipment ready for the heat?

We’re entering the dog days of summer, and if you want to make sure your equipment can handle the heat, there are few maintenance items you need to address.
According to the good folks at Takeuchi, airflow is critical for keeping a machine productive in the heat. With all the dust flying around on the job site, filters become plugged more frequent which prevents proper circulation. They also say keeping your machines clean, greased and maintaining proper fluid levels is important. And, on extremely hot days, you should let your machine idle for a bit before shutting down.
For a complete rundown on preparing your machines for the hot summer ahead, check out the whole article on Construction Equipment Guide’s website.

Stay cool out there.

Get more life from your Compact Excavator’s Undercarriage

The folks here at MWE know a thing or two about tracks, and we’re always willing to share that expertise with compact equipment owners. So, when the editorial team at Compact Equipment magazine asked us to write an article that would help contractors get more life from their excavator’s undercarriage, we said “certainly.”
Our Wholesale Division Manager, Eric Hartzler outlined what maintenance needs to be done daily, weekly and monitored regularly in the article “Learn How to Preserve Your Compact Excavator’s Undercarriage.” He also talked about the importance of buying quality parts when it is time to replace an idler, roller, sprocket or a set of tracks.
