Mobile Substation Tires

 

Mobile Substation Tires

I would like to know how often other fleets are replaceing the tires on mobile substations, I read one post that they were changing theirs every five years, is this about the industry standard.

We have looked at it several different ways and as you know they do not move very much. We currently do not have any specified time fram to replace any tires based on age. We preform an annual inspection and make the tech inspect the tire very carefully. We also ask our hauling group to inspect tire before pulling when possible.

We do not have any specified replacement age either.  The units are inspected carefully each time they are moved and tires are replaced as needed.
