Of all the machines in the earthmoving world, bulldozers, particularly large ones may have the greatest variation when it comes to owning and operating costs. Steady maintenance is key factor to keep the dozers in optimum condition irrespective of the age of the equipment, geographical and weather conditions. Age is the most important thing which acts upon the performance of a dozer. If you have purchased a used dozer, you have to take extra care. As a used dozer has undergone wear and tear for many years, its level of performance automatically comes down. Proper care of the undercarriage can significantly minimize maintenance costs, increase uptime and impact the longevity of the dozer.

You may have faced problems with the performance of your old dozer many times and at the same time, you cannot stop using this construction equipment as it plays a major role in a construction site. So, why not spend some time in maintaining your dozer properly.

Tips to maintain a dozer properly

  • Checkups for steady repair - Regular checkups of the dozer are essential to ensure a good working condition. You should change the oil and other fluids in a systematic interval. If you keep your dozer in extremely wet climatic condition, it will damage more quickly. It is because rust will form rapidly on the important parts of the machine. In case of used dozers, the chains, bolts and the undercarriage should be checked to detect the damaged parts.
  • Cleaning of the track frame – To work in muddy conditions especially in winter freezes the mud on the track frame of the dozer. Therefore, you cannot ignore cleaning off the mud while the equipment is still warm. Use a track spade which perfectly fits into the gap between the track and the frame making the work of cleaning smoother for you. After cleaning, park the dozer either in the snow or on aged tires.
  • Maintenance of Electrical system – Proper maintenance of electrical system which consists of batteries and wires should not be overlooked. Their periodical checkup is necessary to avoid short circuit. Replace the damage or old battery instantly once you detect them. Your wire should be good enough with an efficient fuse system.

Tires play an important role as an automobile component. Many parts may make up a car but usually one part is limited to one function. Despite its simple appearance, a tire differs from other parts in that as it has numerous functions. No matter how good an engine your car has, how good interiors it has , what basic speed and acceleration it has, in the end it all comes down to tires and how they can alter your car’s performance on the road. So it is essential to take care of your tires and ensure to take necessary steps to improve their lives. You can follow the below given steps for ensuring maximum life of tires-

Keep your tires properly inflated
If you are driving with tires that are properly inflated, you will surely get the best mileage for your car along with better tire durability.  Check your tires with a tire pressure gauge once a week, preferably in the morning to get the best result as the car remains stationary in night.  By checking tire pressure regularly, you can make sure your tires are properly inflated across all the seasons ultimately maximizing their usage.

 Follow good driving habits
Fast start, sudden breaks and turns can lead to wearing of tires. By following proper traffic rules and having right driving habits surely benefits the driver. Also try to avoid road hazards like potholes and debris in the road and save them from wearing off.

Keep Tires Aligned
This is different from tire balance. Tire alignment ensures that your tires remain perpendicular to the ground and parallel to one another. Misaligned wheels can greatly reduce the life of your tires.

Rotate & Balance Tires
Tires should be rotated every 6,000-8,000 miles, so it’s easiest to remember to rotate them every other oil change. The reason we do this is be because front tires wear faster by moving them to the back, you prolong their life. Having properly balanced tires reduces vibration when driving. This vibration can increase wear within your tire components.
So from now on, keep these tips in your mind to make tires last longer. These simple tips do not require much of your time or money, but can prove to be very useful for having a good driving experience.

We often come across situations, when we don’t know, whether we need to get our car repaired or to replace it. Some cars do last for a long time but it’s not the case with every car, so you should stop thinking to get more from your car. But how would you know if you need to give up on it or get it repaired and run it for some more time? We will provide you with some guidelines to make your decision an easier one.

Evaluation of your vehicle
Inspect your vehicle and evaluate its condition so that you can take further steps. You can do this step after making a checklist by yourself or can get a mechanic to perform this step. Evaluating the condition of your vehicle will give you the exact report and you will be able to know the potential of vehicle and its problem.
Determine Future Maintenance Cost
Assemble maintenance schedules as according to the mileage of your car and mileage required in future. Take your car to the mechanic of your trust and pay them to inspect the car as according to the maintenance schedules. The cost of these inspections should be fairly inexpensive, and the information they will provide will be more than worth the expense. Add up all recommended repair costs plus all previous repairs during the year. Divide this number by 12 to determine your average repair cost for the given year. This number will not however include any breakdown or unexpected repairs.

How much is your car worth
After getting every piece of information from both the steps above, you now need to determine the value of your vehicle. Also determine the value of competitive cars that are available around you, this will help you to know the real worth of your car. It is important to know the worth of your car, to make you able to get the best price if you are planning to dispose off your car.

Cost of your next Car
Now that you have determined your yearly repair costs, the value of your current vehicle, and a possible sales price you must calculate the monthly payment of the new car. Paying a larger down payment on the new car will lower the monthly payment. Keep in mind you are replacing a vehicle that you know will be incurring future repair costs, so don't take on more money debt than you can handle. Hopefully you have a month or two before these expected repair bills will be required, so you will have some time to price shop the new car, and have time to sell your current vehicle.

If you can’t purchase a new car due to shortage of funds, don’t worry, just connect with Shriram Automall India Limited (SAMIL). SAMIL provides a wide range of used vehicles and equipment.  You can own the car of your choice easily by accessing SAMIL’s online as well as physical bidding platforms and get the best deals. Finance services from SAMIL in association with Shriram Transport Finance Company (STFC) makes acquiring used vehicle very convenient and safe.

 Society of Indian Automobile Industry at its 56th annual convention demanded an extension for the FAME scheme in the leftover cities of the country with an aim to push the demand for electric & hybrid vehicles collectively.

Government launched the FAME scheme in 2015 and since then over 80,000 electric and hybrid vehicles have been sold till now. The aim of the scheme was to offer incentives of up to Rs. 29,000 for bikes and Rs 1.38 lakh for cars to the customers who are willing to buy an electric or a hybrid car or scooter.

The convention also urged a clear roadmap on emissions, safety and fuel efficiency regulations that can provide us a clear direction for 5-10 years.

Meanwhile the demand for both used and new vehicles with CNG engine as a first preference has been on an increasing side thanks to the implementation of various government checks to control rising pollution.

Taking off vehicles of over 15 years on road has also triggered positive outlook in the industry, however the government is still in discussion mode on the kind of incentive to be offered for getting the vehicle scrapped. This will also create a good demand for new vehicles and ultimately lead to reduction in emission rate.

The government is also considering a financial incentive of up to Rs 1.5 lakh on surrender of vehicles that are over 10 years old to check pollution and address safety concerns.

Small vehicles will be offered an incentive of up to Rs 30,000 for those surrendering small vehicles while trucks could be in for total benefits worth Rs 1.5 lakh.

While the policy will take some time to get fully implemented meanwhile sell your used vehicles at Shriram Automall anywhere in India. The company follows an easy process to buy or sell used vehicles in India through their transparent bidding platforms.
