Heavy-duty equipment like bulldozers, semi-trucks, backhoes, excavators, and tractors are built to withstand extreme conditions. They are exposed to the elements as well as rough work environments with flying debris. These vehicles are equipped with durable glass, but they still require check-ups. We recommend fleet managers and business owners look over their machinery at least once a year to check for breaks, chips, and cracks.
The glass in an excavator and other machinery protects the operator from airborne debris. Unlike cars that mostly drive on paved, flat roads, heavy-duty equipment drives over rocks, metal, stones, and construction sites where they can sustain damages from flying materials. The glass acts as a shield to ensure the driver can safely operate the machinery. If it’s cracked, it can impair the driver’s field of vision, which is dangerous.
Protect Your Workers from this Safety Risk
Unfortunately, small chips in the windshield glass can become large cracks and breaks, which are expensive and difficult to replace. We recommend checking for – and repairing – any small cracks and chips before they turn into bigger problems. Different machinery has different types of glass. Lucky Dog Auto Glass can replace tempered, laminated, and flat glass.
