Troubleshooting Common Issues With Bulldozers

Troubleshooting Common Issues With Bulldozers

A bulldozer or two is likely to be found nearby when you work on a construction site. They occasionally develop mechanical problems, just like any heavy machinery. While it's not only an inconvenience, failure to take care of the problem could result in serious injury to your employees. Here are some common bulldozer problems and solutions you may encounter. When you need bulldozer or other construction equipment repair, contact Custom T Repair. We have convenient locations in Greenbrier and Springfield, Arkansas. We also offer services on location.

Track Problems

It is not uncommon for one track side to stop working after the engine gets hot. It's likely that the steering clutch is malfunctioning. Turning right or left should release the steering clutch on the opposite side. When clutches wear out, they will need to be replaced.

Bulldozer Unable To Move Backward or Forward

Whenever your bulldozer only moves backward and forward for a short time or doesn't move at all, begin by checking the oil. The presence of metal or debris in the hydraulic filter may indicate a problem with the pump or drive motor. This requires disassembling and servicing the hydrostatic drive pump.

Electrical Issues and Repairs in Greenbrier and Springfield

An electrical problem could cost the company valuable time. Whenever you have trouble starting your bulldozer, start simple. Make sure there is no water within the drain valve. Next, check the fuel filter, which might need a good cleaning or replacement. During the day, fuel lines and tanks get clogged with sediment and dirty water; clean them daily to prevent future clogging.
