Loaders are one of the important mechanical equipment in engineering construction, but long-term use and inevitable failures will inevitably lead to equipment damage. In order to prevent unnecessary damage when the loader fails, the maintenance technician from Aprilparts will introduce to you the safety matters that need to be paid attention to before repairing the loader.

1. Inspection before maintenance

Before carrying out loader maintenance, you must first check the loader’s safety devices, including braking system, rotatable seats and seat belts, etc. Inspecting these parts can avoid putting yourself and others at risk during repairs. In addition, check whether all parts of the equipment are intact, especially whether the components are damaged or worn. If problems are found, repairs should be stopped and the equipment should be replaced or repaired promptly.

2. Confirm that the power supply and hydraulic system are turned off

When performing loader maintenance, be sure to confirm that the power supply and hydraulic system are turned off first. Workers need to touch and untie wires and other parts that may cause electric shock during maintenance, so the power supply must be cut off to avoid electric shock accidents. The temperature of the hydraulic oil is relatively high. If the hydraulic system is not cut off first, there may be a danger of burns during maintenance.

3. Confirm that the machinery is in optimal condition

What safety precautions should you pay attention to before repairing your loader?

Before starting repairs, make sure the machine is in a safe condition and parked in a safe and stable location. To ensure equipment stability, you can use the engine’s constant speed function or use the equipment brakes. If you are not sure whether the machine is in the best condition, you can first observe whether there are any abnormalities for a period of time. During maintenance, proceed step by step to avoid dealing with many problems and troubleshooting all faults at once.

4. Follow operating procedures and safe operating procedures

When servicing a loader, operators must strictly follow all maintenance procedures. When using equipment, you must be familiar with its safe operating procedures, otherwise, danger may easily occur. You should clearly understand the warning and indicator lights of the equipment and deal with them promptly to avoid greater harm.

5. Use maintenance equipment and tools correctly

Repairing a loader requires not only specialized skills but also the appropriate repair equipment and tools. The tools must be able to effectively solve problems that arise on the loader, and attention needs to be paid to small details, such as using short poke insulated tools to prevent the risk of electric shock. Of course, when using these tools, you must be familiar with how they work and how to use them.

6. Prevent pollution and noise

When servicing a loader, it is important to ensure safe storage and disposal of used spare parts, lubricants, and other equipment. Avoid polluting the environment. In addition, when using maintenance equipment and tools, try to reduce the impact of noise on the surrounding environment and follow relevant noise and environmental management regulations.

7. Pay attention to personal safety

Finally, the personal safety of the operator is also very important. When servicing loaders, operators should wear appropriate personal protective equipment, such as protective glasses, earplugs, masks, and gloves. When the loader is working, be careful when approaching the moving loader. During maintenance, you must take control to ensure that your hands or body will not be injured, and continue to pay attention to the operating status of the loader throughout the process.

Overall, servicing a loader requires extreme care and constant attention to personal safety and the safe condition of the machine. If the maintenance personnel do not have the necessary skills and equipment, contact a professional repair company for repairs.
