Prevent breakdowns and damage by calling in reliable technicians for semi-truck and tractor repair and maintenance.

Being involved in heavy-duty hauling operations, semi-trucks become susceptible to damage and breakdowns without proper maintenance and care. Many business operations are hampered because of neglect. By having them maintained and inspected by certified technicians like our team at Equipment Maintenance Technicians at least once a year, the risks of downtime can be reduced.

At Equipment Maintenance Technicians, we provide semi-truck repair and maintenance services to keep commercial trucks running optimally. We understand that the importance of semi-trucks in various business operations cannot be overstated. This drives us to provide fast and reliable responses to address damage and breakdowns.

Common Causes of Semi-Truck and Tractor Issues

To prevent business operations from getting delayed, it helps to know common issues with semi-trucks and tractors for prevention and safety purposes.

The four most common causes of issues are the following:

Tire Problems – Some of the tire problems that cause roadside failures are underinflation, blowout, lower tread depth, and misaligned axles. With daily inspections, these issues can be easily caught and addressed. It is recommended to have the wheels and tires checked by professional technicians at least once a month.

Brake System Issues – Both the tractor and trailer have their own sets of brake systems. With heavier loads being carried by semi-trucks, the demands on their brake systems increase as well, causing them to lose their braking ability over time. For that reason, inspecting the brake systems at least once every six months is crucial.

Suspension Failure – Broken spring hangers, leaking shocks, leaf spring leaves, and air suspension system failure are the common suspension problems that cause semi-trucks to experience downtime. Having the suspension systems inspected every 1,000 to 3,000 miles prevents failures.

Interior and Exterior Structure Damage – The trailer and tractor of semi-trucks should remain in good condition as structural damage weakens them over time. As frequently as possible, conduct inspections to spot holes, cracks, leaks, and deterioration.

Care Tips for Semi-Trucks and Tractors

While the average lifespan of semi-trucks and tractors ranges from 10 to 15 years, it can still vary depending on maintenance and use.

To keep them running smoothly, here are a few tips to follow:

Don’t Overload – Semi-trucks and tractors are designed for heavy-duty hauling operations, but they still have their limitations. Never overload as it will put too much pressure on the tires, wheels, suspension system, and braking system of your semi-truck or tractor.

Conduct Frequent Inspections – Conducting frequent inspections is part of semi-truck and tractor maintenance. Besides preventing downtime and delays in operations, frequent inspections promote the safety of the operators and other personnel involved.

Schedule Regular Preventive Maintenance – To ensure that all the parts of your tractors and semi-trucks are in good condition, schedule your tractor and semi-truck for maintenance with certified technicians from Equipment Maintenance Technicians.
