5 Reasons Why Service Matters: Risks vs. Rewards of Direct Drive Maintenance

This Preventative Maintenance guide details key areas where poor operational and maintenance practices create significant risks of equipment failure, leading to costly and disruptive “breakdown maintenance.” These poor practices include:


  • Failure to perform periodic maintenance checks
  • Dangerously degraded hydraulic fluid and filter condition
  • Using third-party or remanufactured parts for repairs in place of OEM-supplied parts
  • Working with third-party service shops instead of OEM-certified facilities and technicians

The guide features a case study detailing how one metal recycling operation’s neglect of routine drive maintenance resulted in costly and disruptive emergency repairs. For metal recyclers whose workforces are stretched to the limit, the guide offers practical ways to efficiently incorporate good maintenance practices into existing operations and reap significant rewards.
