UT Tips: Essential Checks for Scania Bus Drivers
UT Tips: As the sole distributor of the Scania brand in Indonesia, United Tractors, in its efforts to provide the best solution to customers, provides tips about Scania buses so that they can work optimally. This time, UT Tips will share the essential checks the drivers should do to avoid mistakes when operating Scania buses.
Before the Engine Start
Before operating a Scania bus, the driver should know the condition of the bus. The driver is required to walk around the bus for a visual check.
They should also check that there are no leaks and ensure any exhaust systems are clean of dirt. Don’t forget to make sure all heaters are working and no emergency hammer is missing.
When driving, the responsibility of the driver is to drive the bus properly. The driver must see the condition of the bus while operating by paying attention to the indicators found on the driver’s panel, such as bus speed, engine temperature, braking and retarder functions, compressor air pressure, and others.
If the panel screen is red and displays a message that the bus condition such as brakes or retarder is too hot and even smells of smoke, stop immediately and contact the mechanic or report to the person in charge of the bus to get repaired at the nearest UT workshop.
Operate Scania Bus Well and Safely
Scania buses come with Scania Driver Support (SDS), a superior feature that provides feedback in an interactive driving assessment to the driver on the panel screen. This tool helps drivers to operate Scania buses safely.
