Maintaining Big Rigs in Portland
A look under the hood of any 18-wheeler can illustrate the complexity of these vehicles, and it takes a lot of work to keep all of those parts operating smoothly. If you’re the owner of a tractor trailer, your warranty depends on your vigilance in following the regular scheduled maintenance instructions required by the manufacturer, but who should you trust to do the work? S & T Truck Repair has nearly 20 years of experience working with Portland truckers, and our team of technicians is standing by to provide you with quality preventive service for your big rig.
Emergency Upkeep for Your 18-Wheeler
A semi-truck is an incredibly powerful vehicle, which means that it is capable of causing significant damage in the event of an accident or emergency. Even though trucks have a sophisticated network of systems, most wrecks are caused by the same lapses in maintenance that plague passenger vehicles, and we can help you stay on top of any concerns. Tires bear the entire weight of your load, and they need to be monitored for uneven wear and potential weaknesses. It’s hard to stop a truck and trailer when it’s traveling at high speeds, which is why regular brake inspection and service is important. Lighting makes you visible in dark conditions and bad weather, so check your entire fleet regularly and replace any faulty bulbs.
