The Difference in Heavy Equipment Auto Glass Replacement and Repair

Last updated 7 years ago

Tough Equipment Needs Tough Parts

Heavy equipment vehicles suffer the same auto glass damage as any other vehicle. Cracks, chips, sun damage, you name it.

Often used on construction sites, heavy duty vehicles are at even more risk for on the job damages to their windshields, and require similar auto glass repair and windshield repair.

What is “Heavy Equipment?”

Heavy Equipment refers to heavy duty vehicles which often rely on hydraulics as their primary source of power. This includes:

  • Cranes
  • Dump trucks
  • Back-hoes
  • Fork-lifts
  • Tractors
  • Excavators, etc.  

Bigger Equipment Means Bigger Needs

Heavy equipment is more complex than your ordinary passenger vehicles and requires more frequent maintenance. While operating heavy equipment is expensive, failure to maintain this equipment can be even more expensive, not to mention added safety risks to your work environment.

These vehicles require daily and regularly scheduled maintenance to ensure proper working order. This includes performing a visual inspection of all parts, belts and chains, as well as checking the fuel, coolant, and hydraulic levels. A good rule of thumb to follow: Any piece of equipment that has 500 or more service hours should undergo quarterly maintenance every three months.

You can’t exactly take your tractor to your local auto shop for your repair needs. So what do you do when your company’s equipment suffers a windshield crack or chip?
