Breakdown Plague
We have been plagued with breakdowns over the last several months. Everything from hose heat issues, proportioners, filters clogged, bad foam, water in foam, air compressors, mixers. You name it we are having issues with everything, even with one machine which is less than 6 months old. we have 3 truck mounted rigs, and all have had problems. we spray .5 lb, 1 lb and 2 lb closed cell foams. Our installers are all certified most with 3-5 yrs exp and one with 10 yrs exp., but they are all blaming each other for their poor maintenance. Is there a list of standard daily, weekly, and monthly maintenance items that I need to have our installers fill out and report? I have spoken with several other contractors, who just don't break down like we do. Something has to be changed.

I have a standard maintenance schedule that I use to do all my maintenance on equipment.
It covers everything from the proportioning unit to the generator,compressor,pumps,gun,etc.
I would be happy to share it, just get me your contact information.

I had a rash of breakdowns this year too. I think a lot of mine came from just being slower this year and the rig sitting more. It can happen to the best of us.

Thanks for your consideration!

Rodger or others with his maintenance schedule,

I am also interested in this schedule and would be grateful if one of you would share with me as well.

Thank you!
