In this presentation, we will take an industry/operational approach to Heavy Truck Preventative Maintenance. We are fortunate to have representatives from Navistar and International Trucks delivering information and best practices for:

  • Heavy Truck Preventative Maintenance
  • Tier IV Regeneration & Diesel Exhaust Fluid
  • Brakes and Driveline Maintenance

During this four-hour presentation, the presenters will discuss various best practices for pre-operation, operation and post-operation of trucks. Maintenance and troubleshooting of Tier IV regen equipment will also be discussed. Finally, there will be discussion on brake systems and drivelines commonly found in heavy trucks used by the DOTs and local agencies.
