You might think that repair and maintenance schedules are the same for heavy-duty and medium-duty trucks, but you would be wrong there. Different trucks are used for different applications, which means the preventative maintenance schedules, and the type of maintenance you do, won’t necessarily be the same. A delivery truck that runs stop-and-start routes in the city is going to need its brakes checked more often than an on-highway truck.
The starting and stopping will be different, the tire wear will be different. It could also impact engine health depending on idling cycles or loads. Light- and medium-duty vehicles also communicate their data differently than heavy-duty trucks. All of this and more is discussed on the latest episode of Data Center.
