It is essential to stay on top of automotive and commercial vehicle maintenance, inspections, and repairs year-round, but even more so in the summer months, when high temperatures can impact parts, fluids, and performance. One example is our hydraulic hose services, which are available seven days a week to assist our customers for preventive and emergency replacement services. The volume of hydraulic fluid can change due to changes in both pressure and temperature. When the mercury rises in the summer, the density of the hydraulic fluid decreases, which results in an increase in volume. Depending on the type of equipment and fluid that is used, this could potentially result in a burst hose, leaks, and other issues within the hydraulic system. Summer car services and seasonal preventive inspections and repairs for all types of vehicles and equipment can be addressed with the hydraulic service options available at LaCava Brothers in Fall River.
Hydraulic Hose Services: What We Do
Quality hydraulic hoses are crucial to the performance and safety of any vehicle or equipment system. Staying on top of regular replacements – and knowing what to do in the event of a leak or failure – is essential. Employee safety must be a chief concern, as well as protecting valuable machinery from damage and other issues caused by hydraulic hose failures. At LaCava Brothers, our custom hydraulic hoses provide customers with the ultimate fluid conveyance system. We only use the most trusted name in the business – Gates hydraulic hoses. Gates has been a leader in hydraulic hoses since 1911, and we trust them explicitly for the services we provide to our customers.
In addition to Gates hoses, we also use MegaCrimp couplings. These high-quality couplings offer more than 500 percent better corrosion resistance than other comparable parts. Our team is able to accommodate a wide range of pressure ranges and can create custom hydraulic hose services that include various abrasion resistance qualities. Every custom hose that we build is created with long-lasting, high-performance applications in mind to ensure complete customer satisfaction. While we primarily sell auto parts and accessories, we are committed to assisting our valued customers with specialty service options, such as our hydraulic hose replacement services and rotor turning services, going above and beyond to meet or exceed expectations.
Other Summer Car Services
If you want to stay on top of your vehicles and equipment, make sure to schedule summer car services to prevent common issues from occurring. Take time to perform preventive services, such as inspecting and maintaining the HVAC and cooling systems. Never overlook the power of a regular oil change. Make sure to change both the oil and the filter on a regular basis, according to the recommendations in your vehicle’s owner manual. The frequency of oil changes can differ on the make and model of the car you drive or the commercial and industrial equipment you use. Some vehicle and machinery owners choose to create a schedule based on use and type of use rather than a simple mileage for better results and preventive protection.
Make sure to check the brakes, especially if you feel any sort of squishy softness or pulsing when you apply pressure during a stop. You should also get your brakes checked regularly by an authorized mechanic unless you have experience looking at and replacing brakes on your own. Surprisingly, changing the brakes on a modern vehicle is not as challenging as it might seem and is a greater “starter” project for anyone wanting to get into automotive repair. You can possibly save money on your next brake change by taking advantage of our rotor turning services at LaCava Brothers. Check the tires, wiper blades, and battery, as well, as part of your summer car services and maintenance.
