HeavyTorque Issue Five: Rydam Universal

IF IT AIN’T BROKE – IT STILL NEEDS MAINTAINING

EVEN THE BEST PRODUCTS ONLY REMAIN SO IF PROPERLY LOOKED AFTER. IN THE LAST FEW YEARS, WHEN TIMES WERE TOUGH FINANCIALLY, SOME EQUIPMENT SUFFERED FROM A LACK OF ATTENTION. FAYMONVILLE’S UK PARTS AND SERVICE AGENT,RYDAM UNIVERSAL LTD, ARE WELL AWARE OF THIS PROBLEM. THEY HAVE A PLAN TO PUT THINGS RIGHT. BOB BEECH FINDS OUT MORE.

Trailer technology has advanced tremendously in recent years. Even fairly standard specification step-frame trailers are far more complex than their equivalents from years gone by. Almost all modern heavy haulage trailers have features such as air suspension, EBS, ABS, friction steered axles. Many of these improvements are due to legislation – and operators demanding more sophisticated trailers to carry heavier loads further and faster. Things become even more complicated with multi-axle low-bed trailers; and technology such as hydraulically operated power steering, hydraulic suspension systems, adjustable goosenecks etc. These all bring added intricacies, which need maintaining correctly. Otherwise serious problems can arise.

It is not so much that modern equipment requires more maintenance (in fact, they often visit the workshop less) but they need properly- trained individuals. Who must understand both how the systems work, and the maintenance procedures to keep them at their best. All makes of trailers have problems particular to them: operators need to be able to speak to individuals who thoroughly understand the product, who can often identify the true cause, and then advise on the best way to fix it.

Announcement

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?
