Buy A Telehandler for Winter – Seasonal Maintenance Checklist for Used Construction Machinery

Used plant equipment

Winter presents unique challenges for construction machinery, particularly vital equipment like telehandlers. At IPS, we recognise the importance of meticulous maintenance during colder months to keep your telehandler operating at its best. In this guide, we’ll discuss the critical winter maintenance checks, ensuring your telehandler remains a reliable asset in the face of chilly challenges.

Preventing Winter Pitfalls for Your Telehandler

Wiper Blades –As winter brings rain, snow, and sleet, visibility is paramount. Begin your maintenance routine by inspecting and, if necessary, replacing wiper blades. Clear visibility not only enhances safety but also contributes to the efficient operation of your telehandler.

Tracks and Treads on Challenging Terrains – Your telehandler’s tracks or tyres are the interface between the machine and the ground. Check for wear and tear, addressing any issues promptly. Proper traction is crucial, especially in snowy or icy conditions, ensuring stability and manoeuvrability on challenging terrains. If you buy a telehandler for winter, check the tracks before you sign the deal!

Ground Conditions – Winter often means encountering unpredictable ground conditions. Avoid the risk of sinking by carefully assessing the ground where your telehandler will operate. This simple precaution can prevent potential damage and downtime during your winter projects. If your ground is more prone to sinking or becoming boggy, try to opt for wider tyres, or even additional bog mats when you buy a telehandler for winter.

Snow Accessories: Gear Up When You Buy a Telehandler for Winter – For winter-specific applications, invest in accessories like snow shoes or snow ploughs. These accessories and many more are available for hire through our sister company, H. E. Services (Plant Hire) Ltd. Equip your telehandler for snow clearance or any other winter challenges your projects may face.

Engine Coolant – Protect your telehandler’s engine from the winter chill by ensuring an adequate supply of engine coolant. Engine efficiency is closely tied to temperature regulation, making this a vital part of winter maintenance. Regular checks and top-ups can prevent freezing and keep your telehandler running smoothly.
