It’s great to see your commitment to safety and efficiency. Inspecting and testing excavators involves several crucial steps.
Firstly, visually inspect the machine for any visible damage or leaks. Pay close attention to the undercarriage, boom, stick, and bucket.
Secondly, check all fluid levels including engine oil, hydraulic oil, and coolant.
Thirdly, examine the operator’s compartment for functioning controls and safety devices. Then, start the excavator and listen for unusual noises. Test the swing mechanism, travel functions, and hydraulic system under load.
Finally, inspect the braking system.
These inspections should be conducted daily or before each use.
I hope this helps, Susan!
