Six Maintenance Measures of Suction Truck during Stopping

- Sep 10, 2019-

The suction truck is an environmental sanitation vehicle. In addition to doing routine maintenance in normal use, in some cases, some owners may not have to stop the suction truck for a period of time. At this time, preventive work should be done ahead of time, and necessary maintenance measures should be taken to make it in good condition.


1. Cleaning of the suction truck

Before parking the suction truck, the whole truck should be cleaned and tidied up, and no mud stains should be left. The tire pressure should be set to the upper limit, the fuel tank should be filled with oil, and the whole truck circuit should be closed. If the parking period exceeds one month, not only the tire pressure should be adjusted to the upper limit, but also the number of centimeters of vehicles should be moved regularly every other week, so as to avoid the tire being pressed to the ground in a fixed position, resulting in the deformation of the radiant steel wire in this part.


2. Release antifreeze

Before parking, the suction truck should dry all the antifreeze fluid in the cooling system, release the oil, remove the pile head after the battery is fully charged, and charge regularly during parking.


3. Jack up the car

Before the suction truck stops, a firm jack is used to frame the truck so that the tires and suspension components are no longer stressed. 


4. Keep ventilation in garage

Ventilation should be maintained regularly in the garage where the suction truck is parked, so that the relative humidity of the air can be kept below 70%.

Oil, grease or oil paper should be coated on rusty parts and parts. The holes in the assembly mechanism should be sealed to prevent air, moisture and dust from entering the interior.


5. Start the engine once a week

If the suction truck is not used for a long time, it is better to start the engine once a week to check the operation of the engine. If there are abnormal phenomena, it should be adjusted and repaired in time.


6. Check accumulator frequently

The electrolyte level of the battery must be 10-15 mm higher than that of the plate. Distilled water should be added in time when the battery is insufficient. The battery should be charged if necessary.
