Taking a proactive approach to maintaining your street sweeper in Las Vegas or elsewhere can help highlight small issues before they become big problems that cost you lots of time and money. Follow these steps to extend the lifespan of your equipment:
Stay committed: Taking a comprehensive approach to maintenance is essential, and you have to commit to using every tool at your disposal. This could mean inspection programs, condition monitoring, electronic data collection, historical repair data or other services.
Understand your sweeper: Even if you’ve been working with street sweepers for decades, always go through the manual when you obtain a new piece of equipment. The manual will outline important service intervals and give you invaluable information about operating conditions.
Record your service history: Always make note of work that was done. This will help you tremendously when it comes to future maintenance work. Record the type of service performed on your sweeper, the date it was performed, any parts that were replaced and when the next expected servicing date will occur.
Clean Your Sweeper Regularly
Street sweepers in Las Vegas are used in environments that are often dusty and dirty. Keeping your sweeper clean of these elements and mud, cement, concrete and other elements is essential for increasing its lifespan.
Note Signs of Wear
Inspect your equipment each day before use to look for signs of wear. Sudden temperature increases, noises or vibrations can indicate a need for servicing. Take these “hints” from your sweeper seriously and don’t put off repairs — doing so can create much more headaches, expenses and work time lost down the road.
Lubrication plays a large role in the performance of your street sweeper. It reduces friction and can therefore increase the performance and lifespan of your equipment. Check your manual for recommendations from the manufacturer on they type of lubricant to use.
