Hydraulic Attachment Servicing at Astra

Hydraulic Attachment Servicing saves your business money. In company yards all over Britain, valuable attachments lie dormant and rusting in the rain, suffering from a leak here, or a bent chisel there.
Just because these tools no longer perform the way they did when new, doesn’t mean they aren’t still viable, and fixing these problems might cost a lot less than you think.

Treat it Like a Car

In the same way a car needs it’s oil and water topped up, tyres checked, and belts need changed, hydraulic attachment servicing is essential too. Attachments with Moving parts need to be checked, seals can leak, chisels break or bend and wear to pistons and tie rods can cause seizures that can destroy a unit beyond economical repair.
This means you could be writing off thousands of pounds of plant equipment that when properly serviced, would have had many useful years of life left making money.

The good news is that most problems can be easily fixed and in many cases avoided with a little TLC.

Whilst operating hydraulic attachments there are a few ‘golden rules’ to live by:-

• Before operating attachement perform a visual inspection and test pressures
• On colder days a slow warm up to full operating can help warm parts and prevent problems
• If your attachment requires greasing (breakers particularly) then this should be done every two hours
• Perform a visual inspection after each job to spot anything bent or cracked
• Heavily used attachments should have a full service annually
