Ways to increase efficiency of equipment will continue to be a priority of fleet managers nationwide. Two things that are driving this continuing trend are finances and the environment. Some of the high priority issues for municipalities include:
- A decrease of fleet expense
- Improved fuel efficiency
- Reduced labor costs
- Increased safety
To keep equipment running properly, it needs to be checked regularly during the PM. Preventive maintenance (PM) consists of scheduled servicing, inspections, and machine repairs to prevent potential problems and maximize equipment availability. Preventive maintenance is used to proactively avoid or reduce equipment breakdowns and is based on time, mileage, engine hours, or gallons of fuel used. If preventive maintenance is not performed regularly, machine life span will be greatly reduced. Some machines may be prone to excessive breakdowns requiring expensive repairs, causing a machine to be out of service when least expected and possibly when needed most. Machines may become unsafe due to lack of PM. Proper maintenance will also help prevent litigation from negligence.
