What points and tests should a condition inspection of a used wheel loader include?

Inspecting a used wheel loader thoroughly is essential to ensure that it is in good condition and meets your operational requirements. Here’s a comprehensive checklist for a condition inspection of a used wheel loader:

  1. Overall Inspection:
  • Check for visible signs of damage, rust, or welds on the loader’s frame.
  • Inspect the body and bucket for any signs of impact or damage.

2. Engine:

  • Start the engine and check for unusual noises, smoke, or vibrations.
  • Inspect for oil leaks around the engine and related components.
  • Check the air filter for cleanliness.
  • Check for extended blow-by and pressure in the cooling system.

3. Transmission and Drive train:

  • Test the transmission through all gears, both forward and reverse.
  • Check for any unusual noises or vibrations during operation.
  • Inspect the condition of the drive shafts and universal joints.
  • Test the transmission in manual and automatic mode.

4. Hydraulic Systems:

  • Test all hydraulic functions, including the lifting and tilting of the bucket or attachment.
  • Look for leaks in hydraulic hoses, fittings, and connections.
  • Check the hydraulic fluid level and condition.
  • Test the torque stall speed or the hydrostatic drive with appropriate tests.

5. Bucket or Attachment:

  • Inspect the bucket or attachment for signs of damage, cracks, or excessive wear.
  • Check for smooth and precise operation of the bucket control.
  • Ensure there is no play in the pivot points.

6. Tires:

  • Inspect the condition of the tires for wear, damage, or uneven tread wear.
  • Check tire pressure and ensure it meets the manufacturer’s specifications.
  • Look for any signs of bulges or cuts.
  • Measure the tire tread for remaining life time estimation.

7. Brake System:

  • Check the condition of the brakes, including pads, drums and discs.
  • Test the brake pedal for responsiveness.
  • Inspect brake lines for leaks or damage.

8. Steering System:

  • Test the steering for smooth operation.
  • Check for any unusual noises or play in the steering components.

9. Chassis:

  • Inspect the frame and chassis for cracks or signs of stress.
  • Check for any loose or missing bolts in the frame.

10. Cab and Controls:

  • Inspect the condition of the cab, looking for damage, rust, or water leaks.
  • Test all controls for smooth operation, including the steering and loader functions.
  • Check the condition of the operator’s seat, seatbelt, and visibility.

11. Electrical System:

  • Inspect the battery for age and condition.
  • Test all lights, indicators, and gauges.
  • Check the condition of wiring and connectors.

12. Fluids and Lubricants:

  • Check the levels of engine oil, transmission fluid, hydraulic fluid, and coolant.
  • Inspect the color and condition of these fluids.
  • Look for any signs of contamination in the fluids.

13. Documentation:

  • Request and review maintenance records, service history, and any available inspection reports.
  • Check the serial number and verify it against the provided documentation.

14. Operational Test:

  • Take the wheel loader for a test drive to evaluate its performance.
  • Pay attention to how it handles, accelerates, and brakes.

Always consider having a qualified Mevas-Technician or mechanic with experience in heavy equipment perform a thorough inspection if you are not familiar with the specific requirements of wheel loaders. Additionally, consulting the manufacturer’s guidelines and specifications for the particular model of the wheel loader is essential for a comprehensive assessment.
