Nothing wears equipment out faster than dirt and debris. In the C&D environment, it is especially important to inspect your equipment daily to make sure no materials are lodged in locations that may damage your equipment.
Following recommended maintenance schedules also significantly contributes to extended machine uptime. Keep bearings properly greased, belts at the proper tightness, and vibratory equipment properly lubed and tuned. Taking a few minutes per day to check your equipment can lead to hours of profitable business down the road.
