Heavy Equipment Inspections

General Info about inspection

The inspection of a machine or a truck follows a standardized procedure.

The inspector takes basic machine info, then he starts machine for warm-up. While warming up the systems he examines the condition of operator cabin and the exterior. This is followed by a check up for fluid leaks. The engine will be approved and blow by estimated. When machine is warmed up a functional test will be performed. Our inspectors are able to operate all earthmoving machines.

All reports come with 30-50 pictures. On request we can do a video for a small additional fee. Do you want to see a video about machine inspection checklist?
