Regardless of the industry you work in, if you own heavy machinery, the likelihood is that you greatly rely on it to get your work done. Not only can downtime be incredibly expensive for business owners, it can also leave an empty role for your employees. If this happens regularly, then they may seek employment elsewhere, leaving you with a reduced workforce.
It could even have a detrimental effect on the service you’re providing to customers. If it starts to become slow or inadequate, your client base will also shrink. Mitigate loss of revenue and keep the rapport you have with your customers and employees intact by maintaining the heavy machinery you count on every day.
What is the purpose of preventive maintenance?
Preventative maintenance is crucial to making sure that your heavy machinery is working as it should and is in top condition at all times. It also ensures that it’s safe for competent, highly-trained employees to operate. The maintenance of your heavy equipment needs to be done to a schedule and every bit of its servicing needs to be recorded.
We understand that regular maintenance might seem like your machinery is going through a lot of downtime, but it’s nowhere near as much downtime as you would experience if the equipment broke down completely as a result of inadequate servicing.
If you find that you cannot perform this level of maintenance on your equipment, either due to staff shortages or if you’re working to a smaller budget, then you should consider outsourcing the job to a professional, such as us here at Emcon Services.
How often should I have my heavy machinery maintained?
Your heavy machinery needs to be regularly inspected throughout its life by a competent person. The inspection will help to highlight any issues with the machine that might be present. If any problems are found, then it allows the engineers to make repairs or replace parts and components where needed.
This level of maintenance needs to be done at least every six months, but some business owners who rely on heavy equipment to get the job done will have their machinery serviced every three months.
Make sure you devise a schedule so that you’re keeping a track of when your equipment has been serviced and what’s been done to it, if anything. It’s imperative that this maintenance is done so as to ensure the safety of your employees, the integrity of your machine and your financial status.
