Scheduling Aerial Service
Put your pencils to the calendar now regarding aerial ladder servicing. Outriggers, ladders, and related operating systems should be totally cleaned, inspected, and lubricated on an ongoing basis. I recommend doing this service in the spring when the weather is conducive and people don’t complain about the cold.
The ladders take a beating in the winter and need some TLC to get them back into good working order. I also recommend the same thing in the fall. With this schedule
the ladders are protected and work properly as they are exposed to cold weather, ice melt, and sand. By planning now, this can be incorporated into an overall equipment
maintenance strategy that pays huge dividends.
