Money saving tip - Preventive maintenance can help avoid costly service calls and repairs. In addition to the mechanic's time, the driver may have had to pay for the service trucks mileage and any products used during the repair. These costs can really add up. Some breakdowns can be completely avoided by practicing regular preventive maintenance.
Restoring Your Rig?
Big rig restoration projects are more common than ever these days. Many truckers are leaning toward rebuilding and repairing their rigs, especially if the engine is ‘pre-emission’. This trend in the trucking industry, is a common reaction to the ever increasing equipment operating costs for the trucker. The purpose of a working class big rig truck, is to make money.
But, with the high cost of new equipment, DEF fluid, emissions equipment etc., combined with the mediocre pay rates, a large number of truckers are turning to repairing and restoring their present trucks, or restoring a classic big rig, to keep their costs down. Purchasing a new truck or being tied to a lease just isn’t an attractive or practical alternative for many. One of the best financial options for big rig owners, is to rebuild and restore thus the interest in older trucks once again. There are several reasons to consider restoring and rebuilding your present truck, rather than buying new, and taking on the stress of a long term commitment with a new truck.
Pros to restoring your rig:
- Simple Repairs -The older rigs are simple enough so that when they break down, they are repaired quickly.
- Predictability - Fuel mileage is more or less predictable as is engine life and thus operating costs.
- Reliability - Engines and transmissions that have been around for a long time, with good track records for longevity.
- Less Expensive to repair - The older trucks could be repaired quicker as they are not laden down with an overabundance of electrical components.
