Your water truck can be a useful tool in maintaining work sites. For locations that have long roads or dry climates, these tools are not desired, they’re absolutely necessary. Here are a few ways to make sure you’re getting the most out of your water truck.
Plan Refilling and Refueling Routes
It’s important to understand where and when water trucks fill up along these routes. It makes no sense to have one refill station at the end of a 22-mile quarry road. By the time the driver of the truck gets back to refill, he’s more than likely made the problem worse. Having a refill station at both ends allows for proper spraying and dust control.
On the same hand, having a plan for refueling can greatly improve uptime and streamline the process for all involved. If each person with a water truck or fuel & lube truck knew exactly where to be and when there would be far less waiting and far more productive. This can lead to increased uptime and better worksite morale because the process is working as it should.
