How the Mechanic turns the Onspot into an even better investment

Written by Ulrik Andersson,

You have mounted the automatic tire chain system to the vehicle. The driver has picked it up and left the shop. How can you make this an even better investment for the fleet owner and the drivers? Here you can learn more and download documents to use for maintenance. There is even a reference document for the driver when he or she returns for service.

When the vehicle returns for a first inspection, you should pay close attention that the bolts attaching the bracket kits to the vehicle are still at the correct torque. Also, make sure that the Onspot units are still safely bolted to the bracket kit. 

After making sure that the system will stay in the exact position that it is intended to, it will give superb service over a long period of time. Even the slightest change in those areas will affect where the chain wheels hit the tire of the vehicle.  This is one of the benefits of the system in that it is so easy to obtain the correct position ensuring that the chain wheel hits the exact center line of the wheel. This is important so that you will have the best traction driving both forward and in reverse.
