Heavy rain will wash the road into potholes, and the road will become extremely slippery. At this time, it will become difficult for the excavator to walk. When this happens , Dou fans remember not to risk starting work, safety is always the first priority
2. Rainwater is highly corrosive, so cleaning should be done well

In case of heavy rain, if the important parts of the excavator are not cleaned in time, sludge will easily accumulate in the gaps on the lower side of the equipment. The chassis of the excavator is the part closest to the ground, which is particularly affected by road conditions. This part is most prone to rust spots, and the wheel housing may even be loose and perforated. Therefore, the chassis of the excavator must be cleaned and rust-proofed in time.
