Parts Special: 20% OFF Transport Safety Equipment

Protect your investment with the proper tie-downs

Safety should always come first when transporting equipment to and from the job site. If you don’t properly secure your machines, you’re risking fines, damage to the machine, injury or worse.
Having too few straps and tie-downs is a mistake, but so is overlooking worn out and damaged ones. Replacing chains and binders is a smart move and replacing them this month is even smarter because we’re knocking 20% OFF all transportation accessories.

Are You Sitting Down For This? Replacement Seats are 15% Off Thru June!

When to replace operator's seat
OKAY MAYBE NOT THIS OLD…But if your operators need a new “parking 
spot,” for their keesters, we’ve got you covered! (And the seats are too!)

NO NEED TO HIT ROCK BOTTOM!
Seats are a lot like shoes: you never really notice that the pair you’re wearing has gone from “broken in” to “just plain broke.” until you finally slip into that comfy new pair. Or…sit on a completely new, full padded replacement seat. The only difference is: with today’s modern seats and cushioning material, unlike shoes, new seats FEEL GREAT RIGHT AWAY.

MARTIN IMPLEMENT TO THE RESCUE:
15% OFF NEW REPLACEMENT SEATS THROUGH JUNE 30, 2019!
We have an inventory of common seats for just about any piece of equipment, and we can also order any special request you may have. We take seats seriously, because we know from our own personal experience just how much the operator’s comfort matters.

Parts Special: $90 Off Mounting Service When You Buy a Set of Four Tires

Mount up! Now’s the time for new tires!

IT’S A MOUNTING OF SAVINGS!
It’s one those clichés that just happens to be true. Your equipment, your work, your crew: they’re all, quite literally, riding on your tires. Which is why so many fleet owners don’t leave anything to chance, and implement strict tire maintenance and renewal programs. Whether you operate on the clock, or with a trained-eye and well-honed instincts, now might be the perfect time to get new tires and save.  We’re running a special at Martin Implement for $90 off our professional mounting service, whenever you buy a set of four tires. (We thought four was a good round number…and $90 was too!)

Martin Implement Maintenance Notebook: Facts and Friction

Got grease?  Use it liberally!

MACHINES NEED GREASE: A CAUTIONARY TALE
One of the things that sets professional equipment apart from everyday machines like your car is the intensity of the work it does. Big machines running all day, lifting heavy objects, maxing out on their breakout force…well, work like that gets HOT. Friction is a constant, and it’s a constant threat to your machine’s biggest moving parts. Modern equipment is incredibly strong and well-constructed, but it still requires maintenance.  And in the case of lubrication for high-stress parts like lift arms, that means inspecting grease points daily (or after every use) and adding grease as needed; referring of course to the guidelines in your operators manual.

The Essential Compact Utility Loader Maintenance Guide

You know what they say: Happy Compact Utility Loader…happy life!

A NEW SERIES
This is the first entry in a new Fully Equipped Series, where we’ll review and share (details) on maintenance recommendations for specific types of machines. User Manuals sometimes get filed away where they’re tough to retrieve, but you know as well as we do, that maintenance on these big machines is much more than just changing the oil every 100 hours of use.  So we thought it might be helpful to do a series on these machines and, over time, build up a handy archive here on the pages of Fully Equipped. There’s even a full video on this one (below), and a full checklist you can download at your leisure.
