Maintaining and Operating your Railway Equipment

Properly maintaining your railway equipment is the biggest investment you can make in your machinery.

At K and G Machinery we have first-hand knowledge on the ins and outs of railway equipment. This also means we know what it takes to keep this equipment running long-term, to ensure that you can perform quality work. Whether you’re enjoying the many benefits of an excavator, or you have a small rail drill for everyday jobs, proper maintenance can make life easier.

What Goes into Maintaining Railway Equipment?

Maintaining railway equipment is an important job that can save you time and money. Some of the common responsibilities in railway equipment maintenance include:

  1. Regular Inspections and Repair – Part of keeping your railway equipment running is checking it regularly. Rust, mechanical damage, and hydraulic leaks are just some of the things you need to check to ensure the best operation.
  2. Oil Changes – Large railway equipment needs regular upkeep to ensure high performance. Tractors, excavators, and Toolcarriers all need regular oil changes to perform at high levels. This can be especially important before taking on a large project.
  3. Cleanings – Railway equipment relies heavily on hydraulic tools, which are infamous for their cleaning needs. Hydraulic tools may leak fluid, which if left without cleaning, can result in damage to the tool or poor functionality.

At K and G Machinery, we understand how maintenance can directly affect performance, which is why in addition to our railway machinery sales services, we also have superintendents that specialise in equipment maintenance!
