Old rigs - How many VFD's have them and how do you keep them up?
Just joined a small VFD, after moving from a town where I was in a VFD with a much larger budget. Most of the money at the new VFD is fee bill. Any other money comes from fundraisers and the sort. We have multiple older rigs, and they require a little more attention.
I'm sure many of you here have some older rigs in your fleet. If so, how do you go about keeping them up on maintenance and care? I've noticed several issues with some of the trucks we have, which would be easy fixes. The problem is that the other members don't know how to fix the stuff or do not really care.
I will take initiative and do some of the small repairs myself, after obtaining permission of course.
Just wondering if any of you all have regular service intervals or people that may be mechanics..etc.
