Hi Sarah, preparing your excavator for winter involves several steps:
Check the Antifreeze: Ensure it’s at the correct concentration to prevent engine freezing.
Inspect the Battery: Cold weather can drain battery life. Make sure it’s fully charged and replace if necessary.
Lubricate All Points: This prevents parts from freezing. Use a winter-grade lubricant.
Check the Tires/Tracks: Ensure they have good tread for slippery conditions. Consider using snow chains for extra grip.
Warm Up the Engine: Before starting work, let the engine warm up to prevent damage.
Regular Inspections: Cold weather can cause unexpected issues. Regular checks can catch problems early.
I hope this helps, Sarah!
