Mobile Diesel Repair Team Called Out to Repair Air Dryer on Box Truck
McGann and Chester’s Mobile Diesel Repair team was called out for what should have been a quick repair job. After driving 55 miles to the location of the job, the mobile repair team noted that the box truck’s air dryer was leaking. An air dryer is an integral part of the air brake system and works to keep unwanted moisture from the air lines.
Unfortunately, the particular piece needed for this repair is quite rare and difficult to source. The team spent over an hour trying to find the right part. Unfortunately, every supplier they spoke could only get the part to them in one week! Now, the owner of the truck company actually had this particular spare part … in his office in Delaware! Anyone who works within the trucking and logistics industry understands how important it is to have your fleet fully functional at all times.
The owner advised McGann and Chester to stay on standby as he got the part to them. He then took this air dryer part on an epic 380 mile road trip to the disabled box truck! Just over 5 hours later, the McGann and Chester team were called back to complete the job. The experienced mechanics were able to repair the air dryer system within 15 minutes, all without removing the air dryer from the truck!
Great job out there! Keep up the good work, team!
