Garbage trucks, as with most waste equipment, need to take on any harsh conditions that may exist. Whether it's rain, snow, sleet, or hail, the trash needs to be picked up and the trucks need to operate in order to get the job done. That's where automated lubrication systems come into play.
In addition to the harsh conditions, garbage trucks also face the difficulty of handling heavy loads and even dirt accumulation has an effect the condition of a truck's lubricants. Unlike the majority of heavy machinery, garbage trucks must run for long intervals of time with a lot of idling and frequent stop and start driving. If all of the variables aren't taken into account, garbage trucks don't stand a chance on a day-to-day basis.
When soot starts to build up on a truck, it becomes abrasive on the vehicle. A proper lubrication system will prevent the build up of that soot, and it will ensure the engine oil and transmission fluids are at healthy levels. Fuel dilation of the engine oil can be a major cause of concern, and there is no better way to ensure the safety of a truck than to install an automated lubrication system. The installation of a system will extend the life of vehicles, and end up saving money in the long run.
