Hydraulic Ground Support Equipment Maintenance Guide
Hydraulic ground support equipment (GSE) typically has a long lifespan if properly maintained and operated. If GSE maintenance schedules are not followed, or if operators are misusing equipment, hydraulic ground support equipment can potentially contaminate an aircraft's hydraulic system, damaging sensitive components and potentially putting aircraft out of commission. In this guide, we'll walk you through some high-level preventive maintenance practices that personnel should complete on aircraft hydraulic ground support equipment to ensure safe operating procedures at all times.
Keep in mind that this guide should only be used as a supplement to your original equipment manufacturer's (OEM) maintenance manual.
