Maintenance is the art of fixing things before they break.
But how does that work in a quarry where every minute a machine misses impacts production?
How often should tools and tyres be changed? When does keeping going become counterproductive?
Find out by learning the secrets of maintenance.
Without maintenance, every machine in every quarry would eventually fail.
Tools grow blunt, tyres deflate and engines need ever more fuel to do ever less work.
But submitting a machine for maintenance too early dents production and reduces profits.
In quarrying maintenance, timing is everything.
There's a perfect point to change every tool. And an ideal pressure for every tyre. Timing it right takes know-how and practise.
