Dirt and dust are natural enemies of moving parts and all trenchers, plows, backhoes, excavators and such need to be washed clean daily. Pressure wash every chance you get but at least hose everything down daily. Don't forget to grease the machine afterwards.

Fluid levels should be checked before starting and air filters inspected depending on conditions.

Treating your equipment like it's the last you will ever buy will not only make it last longer but will keep it's resale value.

Work the truckmount compressor engine to death, then buy and install a new engine. Lather, rinse, repeat.
