Chipping out concrete from your ready mix drums might seem like strenuous, labor-intensive work — and it is. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t important. At General Chipping, we encourage our friends and customers to incorporate concrete chipping into their regular vehicle maintenance plans. Doing so shows basic respect for the ready mix drums and trucks upon which your team members rely — and makes sense, when you think about it.
While we recommend companies book concrete chipping services every three months or so, that isn’t the only maintenance your team should factor in. Consider this by-the-numbers rundown:
3: Basic Lifespan (in Months) for Your Redi Mix Truck’s Tires
2: Tune-Ups Per Year to Keep Your Ready Mix Truck Prepared for the Seasons
1: Oil Change per Month for Your Ready Mix Concrete Truck
(NOTE: Numbers presented are an average. Specific statistics vary based on company and truck manufacturer.)
Are you showing your ready mix drums and trucks the respect they deserve? That added TLC can make a world of difference when it comes to ensuring your vehicles and drums remain healthy and working their best. If you have questions on this or any other issue related to concrete chipping, feel free to get in touch. The General Chipping team would love to talk!
