Getting the Most Out of Your Skid Steer, Excavator and Dozer Attachments

When considering the investment you are making to purchase equipment attachments, taking steps that ensure a long operating life makes sense. One of the most critical factors for keeping your attachments durable and increasing their life is using them only on suitable machines. It is essential not to force them onto a machine that cannot manage them.

Besides correctly identifying your attachments and knowing their uses, you extend


attachment life by:

  • Performing regular maintenance: Sticking to a regular maintenance schedule is vital for getting the most out of your attachments. Make a list of everything that needs doing and how often. Check your attachments after every use for cracks, scratches, and normal wear and tear to fully understand where maintenance is needed.
  • Adhering to the manufacturer’s equipment manual: Today’s attachments go far beyond the initial purchase price. Every Rockland attachment comes equipped with an operator’s manual for you to get
    to know your attachments, understand how to use them, and how to keep them usable for the maximum amount of time. If your equipment manufacturer offers advice on recommended equipment care, make sure you follow it. Few people know more about your attachments than the manufacturers.
  • Providing proper training: Giving your fleet operators the appropriate training to run and care for your equipment helps you in the long run. The more they know about a machine and the quicker they can identify an issue, the more it helps prevent significant problems.
  • Ensuring sufficient storage: Despite your heavy equipment’s durability, letting it sit idle in the elements for extended periods can cause considerable wear and tear. Storing your attachments in an adequate facility keeps them safer when not in use.
  • Keeping detailed service records: Maintaining accurate records of service information will provide the necessary data to ensure your company is performing the essential care. These records are also critical to establishing a high resale value should you decide to sell down the road.
