Preventative Maintenance

The best way to prevent long-term and costly problems with your equipment is to keep up with its preventative maintenance schedule. One major key to successfully making sure you are doing all you need to do is to read your equipment’s owner’s manual. The owner’s manual will most often contain a maintenance schedule with listed procedures to keep your equipment in good condition. The equipment manufacturer provides suggestions for how often you need to change your fluids, filters, driving belts, timing belts and more. The maintenance schedule is provided by the people who understand your equipment the best—the company that built it. While some preventative maintenance—such as topping off fluids—can be performed by the vehicle’s owner, other, more complicated procedures should be done by experts like the team at Specialized Equipment Repair.
