Fleet Maintenance

Large Equipment

Fleet maintenance is a behind-the-scenes service, which supports all operations and encompasses all activities involving the repair of the Township Road District's fleet. The Road District's fleet is comprised of a wide spectrum of trucks and tractors, as well as a host of other specialized mechanical equipment. The vehicle's safety and reliability is directly dependent on timely preventive fleet maintenance and not exclusively related to the vehicle's age and mileage.

Our aggressive preventative maintenance program ensures that all motorized equipment receives a consistent level of on-going mechanical maintenance with the goal of extending the serviceable life of the unit and thereby reducing down time and overall cost of ownership. The primary goal of the Township Road District's fleet maintenance program is to provide the Township Road District Crew with a dependable, well-maintained fleet at the lowest practical cost.

Small Equipment

A preventive maintenance program performed on a weekly, monthly, quarterly and/or annual basis has continued to ensure the Township Road District's construction tools and equipment are ready for routine and emergency response. The inspections entailed checking the fluids, battery life and running the equipment for a specified period of time. Deficiencies were promptly reported to the fleet maintenance staff for repairs. Such equipment included, but was not limited to: locators, pumps, generators, saws, mowers and other fuel powered tools and equipment.
