Service Once, Service Right

September 13, 2019

If you invested in a Mazzarati would you take the time to get it serviced? You bet your ass you would. So why should servicing your heavy machinery be any different? Answer: It shouldn’t. 

Here a few tips for keeping your machines working properly. 

Service Regularly 

Similar to visiting your general physician every year your machine will need a checkup each year. To keep your earthmoving equipment running properly you need to make time for servicing in order to keep your equipment at the industry standard. Quick and rushed maintenance on a machine won’t help much either. Heavy machinery repair completed in a time crunch generally produces more problems. 

And while we’re on the topic, don’t let a minor issue turn into a major headache. When you notice the slightest issue, you should reach out to a team who knows not only what they are doing but how to do it well. 

Use The Right Team 

There’s nothing quite like a team who knows what they’re doing. Want to know what’s better? A team that isn’t just trying to make an extra buck. Our team’s focus is on building a lasting relationship with result-driven work ethics. Weird right? 

Our mission is to provide high-quality machinery with excellent service and support to customers around the world, which includes you and your machine. Tired of dealing with a company who is lacking in the service department? Give us a try. We can almost guarantee you won’t be using another company once you understand the Houston Heavy Machinery difference. 

Don’t Overwork Your Machine 

We know the machines are made to work but overworking a machine won’t do you much good. Your owner/operator manual should state the performance specifications and limitations for each of your machines. It’s up to you to follow so you don’t push your machines too far. 

Understanding and abiding by weight limits for loads and grades is an easy way to ensure that you don’t run into any unforeseen problems. Making sure that the proper power mode is on during certain jobs will improve the longevity of your machine, as well. 

Finally, minimizing your heavy machinery’s travel and idle time can add to the life of your machines.
