A Quick Overview of Hydraulic System Maintenance

One of the most overlooked – but most important – components of heavy construction equipment is the hydraulic system. Hydraulics help power a lot of the mechanisms that make performance possible for a piece of construction equipment. But they often aren’t heavily checked, inspected, or maintained, which can lead to problems down the road. Most operators perform a quick check of the vehicle and mainly look for leaks – assuming that if there aren’t any, the hydraulics are good to go.
