Writing a first article for Dutch magazine BouwMachines (Construction Machinery) got me onto unexplored terrain. I was introduced to the market of construction, earthmovers and articulated dump trucks. A very interesting market I must say, with plenty of high tech machines and technologies. It proved to be a very interesting introduction resulting in additional knowledge, new contacts and new terminology. It led to the article “How to extend the life time of construction tyres.” By far the most frequently mentioned and also most practical and simple advice: check your tyre pressure as often as your oil and coolant levels! Below is a snapshot of the article that was published in BouwMachines no. 2 of February 21st.
