Compaction Task Optimization: Perform These Checks on Your Machine
United Tractors, Jakarta: To perform road compaction with good quality, you need to carry out optimal maintenance including heavy equipment health check.
The inspection should include a thorough inspection of heavy equipment starting from the engine, hydraulic system, or other operating support devices such as the water sprinkling system before the task begins.
During a compaction task, the occurrence of a fundamental fault may cause major problems. United Tractors as the sole distributor of the Bomag brand in Indonesia will provide tips for Bomag products. This inspection works as an early detection to avoid fatal errors in the road compaction process using a Bomag asphalt compactor.
Checking Before Starting
First, fill the water tank and also check the water filter. If condensation occurs, open the filter to drain the pump. You will also have to check the nozzle by cleaning it or replacing it if necessary. If there is water freezing in the splash system, open all nozzles. Also, check the engine oil level, fuel level, and perform general function tests such as brakes, lights, horns, and hazard lights.
