Today we would like to share with you some of our tips on how to achieve safe construction during the rainy season.
Rainfall and falling temperatures during the rainy season pose great challenges to our machinery operation.
First, the construction environment becomes more complicated as rainfall promotes poor construction conditions such as mud,puddles and even flooding. Second, higher requirements are placed onmaintenance as rainfall can cause damage such as machine corrosion and water in the filter element.
As a result, we have summarized some key construction operation and maintenance information for rainy days especially for the global XCMG team, which we hope can provide you with some reference.
In the rainyseason, it is best to park machines in a dry garage and avoid parking in a wet environment as much as possible. For machines stored inside, rust prevention work should be carried out, and machines parked for a long period of time should be started and driven once a month. Batteries should be charged; the grease on the piston rod should be wiped clean; and grease should be added to the necessary parts.
When parking outdoors, check that the fuel tank and hydraulic oil tank covers are securely fastened so as to avoid rain getting into the tanks. Plastic bags may be usedto cover the openings and provide basic protection.
Suspended construction work on rainy days is a good time for maintenance work. You can take this opportunity to give the machine a thorough examination, carry outrepairs, replace easily damaged parts, clean the radiator surface, andlubricate all lubricating points, etc. Pay attention to the following:Check the airfilter to avoid damage and blockage caused by the deterioration of the filter element as a result of rainwater;
Check the sealing ring on the engine oil level gauge and promptly replace it if it is worn. The oil filler should also be checked;
Check the cable ends of the starter and promptly fix or replace them if they have become looseor corroded;
Check the generator to prevent moisture of the line connectors from affecting powergeneration.
Construction in the rainy season is said to be about 30% fate and 70% carefulness. By making a detailed plan for your XCMG equipment in advance, you will yield twice the result with half the effort.
