Among the most important components of a wheel loader is its hydraulic system as any small failure to it may affect its overall performance. It's thus of great importance to learn how to correctly maintain the hydraulic system for continuous maximum efficacy of the loader.
Because of this, proper care and maintenance are required to ensure a longer service life in addition to maximum performance and dependability of the system.

Proper and regular maintenance of the hydraulic system not only elongates the support life and enhances efficacy but also prevents the premature and frequent breakdown of the machine, consequently saving on repair and service fees.
It is, however, important to be familiar and have a suitable comprehension of the loader such as its functionality, service requirements, structure, and working conditions prior to doing any maintenance work on it.
The first 6 months following the purchase of any new loader is quite vital to determining its later service lifetime. In this period, regular checks should be performed as they're quite crucial based on the job it does.
You should check and always pay close and particular attention to issues like the loose bolted connections, installed attachments; oil requirements e.g. oil temperature in addition to the service environment and requirements.
There should also be no source of oil leakage in the system, in addition to any damaged or twisted pipes since they might lead to leakages and total damage. Check for any loose pipe joints or loose joint erections at the bolted areas.
