Air Brake Inspection
In addition to the dump trucks, there is a lot of heavy equipment that has Air Brakes. The Wheel Loader that you will train on here at the Deep Creek Construction School training facility is one of them. The Air Brake Inspections must be done every day as part of the Start-Up-Procedures.
The Air Brake Inspection include
1. The Low Pressure Warning Signals Test.
2. The compressor Test.
3. The Governor Test.
4. A Leak Test.
NOTE: We do not do on a daily basis the Rolling Stop Test on heavy equipment. That test requires it to be done on level ground.
