Three Common Mistakes that Can Lead to a Nonworking Work Truck

Three Common Mistakes that Can Lead to a Nonworking Work Truck

Your work trucks are one of the most important assets to your business. So, it’s crucial that they are well designed and optimized specifically for your business. Well-designed trucks can lead to an increase in productivity levels and help to ensure you achieve the best overall return on your investment. 

Unfortunately, there are a few common mistakes that you can run into during the specification-writing process, which often lead to poor results and a nonworking work truck. Here are a few tips from the Commercial Carrier Journal to help you avoid these common mistakes and write the best spec’ possible:

Mistake #1 – Working Out of Order
Instead of starting the specification-writing process with the truck chassis, it’s best to address the body and equipment first. Think about what types of jobs your trucks are going to be used for. Your work trucks should be designed specifically for those jobs. Once you’ve defined this, you can decide what type of equipment and body will be needed to get those tasks done.

Mistake #2 – Doing What You’ve Always Done
When replacing an existing vehicle, it’s easy to think you just need to duplicate the old one. But what if the existing vehicle wasn’t optimized for the job it’s doing? Requirements are always changing and there are always improvements to be made. Be sure to check out the latest products and enhancements and make your decision from there.

Mistake #3 – Taking Your Best Guess
During the powertrain design process, it’s extremely important that you know how much the finished vehicle will weigh and that you make careful and realistic decisions when putting together your performance criteria.  It’s best to perform a detailed analysis rather than making guesses. The more you put in, the better the results will be in the end.
