Post-season Maintenance Checklist

Preventive maintenance limits downtime and repair costs, leads to longer life expectancy of mulch coloring equipment, and can stave off a complete component failure.

After the busy spring and summer seasons, inspect these items for wear:

  • Pump hoses
  • Blades
  • Arms
  • Liners
  • Auto-control hopper sensors
  • Bearings
  • Shafts

For companies that operate in the winter, BASF recommends:

  • Removing water from lines, nozzles and mixers when your work is done to prevent freezing.
  • Adding RV antifreeze to pumps and water lines that could trap water.

For companies that shut down during cold-weather months, BASF recommends:

  • Removing water from lines, nozzles and mixers to prevent freezing.
  • Adding RV antifreeze to pumps and water lines that could trap water.
  • Removing drain plugs.
