Timber trucks are some of the hardest working trucks on the roadways, and maintaining a logging truck business is even more challenging for this reason. Hauling timber is a type of operation that brings high risk and tight profit margins. If those challenges are enough, the logging industry is also highly regulated and, subject to frequent and often unscheduled inspections. Late this summer, the Midwest’s hard-working logging trucks even arrived on the scene in faraway places like Texas and Florida to help with post-hurricane debris clean-up. With this kind of heavy equipment purposely built for the tough job of moving heavy logs and trees, a well-thought-out logging truck maintenance schedule is more crucial to your business’s success and safety than ever.
For all log trucks, a good maintenance plan is important for operating safely, maximizing payloads, and avoiding overweight fines.
