Lesson 1: How to Perform a Visual and Operational Check of your AC System

Summer has arrived in the Carolinas, and that means hot and humid temperatures at your jobsite. Don’t get caught in the heat! We’ve created a short video on how to properly conduct a visual and operational check of the air conditioning system to keep you cool in the heat of the summer:



Lesson 2: How to Perform a Proper Walk-Around Inspection of your Cat® Skid Steer

The best way to extend the longevity of any machine is by performing appropriate preventative maintenance. The easiest, but most often overlooked preventative maintenance tip is conducting a thorough walk-around inspection on your machine before each use. This includes checking fluid levels, removing any debris and checking grease points to ensure all are clear, full, and functioning properly.

In this video, Ryan Vascancellos, technical communicator for Carolina Cat, demonstrates how to conduct a proper daily walk-around.




Lesson 3: Identifying the Need for New Hoses and How We Can Help

No one has time for unplanned downtime, and there is no way to work around a blown hose or busted coupling. Familiarize yourself with what to look for when reviewing your hoses on your daily walk-around, such as identifying any cracks in your hoses. Carolina Cat has a 30-minute hose build guarantee and over 50 drop boxes across Western NC to get your equipment back up and running.
