Part 3: Maintenance And More Upgrade
Our 18-foot Carson flatbed has served our staff in a variety of ways over the past two years. What used to be a monumental task, requiring renting or borrowing a trailer from a friend, is now a simple jog back to the corporate office to snag our red workhorse. We stopped keeping track of how many times the rig has saved our bacon during breakdowns or while attempting to move large heavy objects across town. We don't know for sure, but by our best estimate, we say we've put well over 30,000 miles on it already. For this reason, we thought it was time for us to perform a little maintenance. We figured it was money well spent when you consider the liability of pulling large company-owned project trucks down the highway at 55 mph.
