Do you know what happens if you never get an oil change on your car? Or if you never replace the filter? What happens if inspections weren’t mandatory on an annual basis and we just kept driving our cars aimlessly without having them checked over every year? Chances are we would have major issues. There would be engine failures, cars with no brakes slamming into trees or other vehicles, and smoke billowing out of most cars. The fact is, cars need regular maintenance to run properly.
Similarly, hydraulic equipment also needs to be properly maintained on a regular basis. If you forgo normal maintenance on your hydraulic systems, you are putting it at risk. Not only do you risk having your equipment operate less efficiently, but by failing to properly maintain it on a regular basis, you are setting yourself up for costly repairs down the road. Those repairs can cost significant amounts of money and lead to lengthy downtime. Thankfully, all of that can be easily avoided by conducing regular maintenance on your hydraulic systems.
Hydraulic equipment might seem complicated, but it is rather easy to maintain if you have the time to regularly devote to it. First, the fluid levels must be checked and if they are low or dirty, they need to be changed. Filters also need to be examined to make sure that they are not full of particulates. Clogged filters can constrain the system and increase the pressure, which not only makes it lessefficient but can also lead to failure. In addition to that, the system should be regularly given a visual inspection to check for any fraying hoses, cracked valves, etc.
