Forklifts from Case Offer Speed in Lifting and Moving Loads

Eagle Power and Equipment evolved from the traditional Factory owned retail facilities that were located throughout the US and Canada.   In 1996 a 25 year employee of Case, named Jerry McDonald along with his family acquired both the Montgomeryville, Pa and New Castle, DE stores and the rest is history.

Most employees had the confidence in Jerry to stay with his new company that chose to call itself Eagle Power and Equipment Corp.  They knew and appreciated the heritage of the Case Company and Eagle Power and Equipment and decided to call it home.   We at Eagle Power and Equipment Corp have many years of experience and know the product inside and out.

Preparing Heavy Equipment for Winter

Even though temperatures have been making it feel like an extended summer here in PA, cold winter weather is not too far away. The harsh winters we face in the Northeast can take quite a toll on your heavy equipment unless you take certain precautions to help minimize the risk of damage.

Eagle Power & Equipment wants to help you maintain your equipment in the best possible shape, so we’ve put together some tips on how to prepare heavy equipment for winter. No matter what type of industrial equipment your company relies on, these general tips should be useful.

Visual Check

The first place to start is your owner’s manual. Typically these have oil and fluid recommendations as well as other seasonal maintenance tasks specific to your machine. A thorough inspection of the equipment will help flag any issues that could be exacerbated when the temperatures start to drop. Take a good look at your tires, batteries, wiring, hoses, and attachments, and repair or replace any items that show damage like cracks, cuts, or worn spots.  The machine should be kept as clean as possible to help you spot leaks and other problems.

Q: If you were stuck on an island what three things would you bring?
A: I would bring a few items for survival:
(1) flint and steel to start a fire (I count them as one)
(2) a good knife
(3) something to hold water
I think I can handle it from there.

Skid Steer/Compact Track Loader Maintenance Tips

case track loader Our blog series on heavy equipment maintenance continues today with some tips on skid steer/compact track loader maintenance.  The goal of this series is to save you downtime and repair expense by keeping you informed of proper maintenance techniques for heavy equipment. You can browse our previous posts on excavator maintenance tips, wheel loader maintenance tips, or loader/backhoe maintenance tips through the links.

Just as with your excavator, wheel loader, or loader/backhoe, your skid steer/compact track loader is simple to maintain when following a Skid Steer/Compact Track Loader Inspection Checklist. Such a list should cover all service points, including:

  • Safety equipment & operator cab
  • Engine
  • Loader
  • Cooling system
  • Electrical system
  • Tier 4A (DPF)
  • Tier 4 Interim & Final (DPF/DOC/PMC/SCR)
  • Drive Line
  • Linkage
  • Hydraulic system
  • Fluids & lubrication

Track tension & tire pressure. One of the most important tips is to regularly check and adjust your track tension or tire pressure. Improperly fitted tracks can cause several issues, whether the track is too tight or too loose. A track that is too loose may have the drive lugs hop over the sprocket rollers and cause premature wear and tear. Too tight and the undercarriage will wear more swiftly. Making it routine to take a few extra moments to check can save you a hassle down the line. Continue reading
