Professional Inspection of Mechanical and Electrical Components is essential


Every 3 months is the standard for a professional to provide an inspection of the entire machine. Since the machine is steel with moving parts, it must be checked for signs of metal fatigue. Often a simple correction can result in saving a considerable amount of money.

Similar to an oil change for an automobile, the hydraulic fluid level and filter in a compactor should be changed periodically. It is recommended these services are provided every 6 months.

The electrical system is also important since it is the basis for the machine operation. Most of the electrical wiring is encased in piping. Therefore, the integrity of the piping should be visually inspected. As should the wiring and connections.
