The technicians here at Whitecloud Mechanical are all either former truck drivers, farmers, or heavy equipment operators. They understand the industry better than most, and as such, share the same mindset as many of today’s drivers. Located in north eastern Alberta just off a major corridor, Whitecloud Mechanical is a full-service heavy-duty shop that does everything from preventative maintenance to heavy equipment repair. We’ll maintain your fleets and equipment in an effective and efficient manner, for we understand that in today’s heavy-duty industry, efficiency is key. When you’re not out on the road, you’re not making money. That’s why we designed our services to be as efficient as possible.
Although heavy-duty axles are designed to handle the extreme weight that semi-trucks haul and tow, they can still be overloaded in certain circumstances. Axles tend to snap or warp during hard accelerations up steep inclines. When driving up steep hills, the weight of your cargo is amplified, hence the snapped axles.
Heavy-duty trucks require heavy-duty brake systems in order to stop reliably. These brake systems are a matter of public safety, for these trucks can cause significant damage and harm to other drivers on the road if their brakes fail. Call us today to schedule an appointment for service.
Heavy-duty commercial vehicles in Canada are expected to undergo a CVIP inspection on an annual basis. This inspection is designed to ensure each vehicle that travels along Canadian roads and highways is safe and in good operating condition.
Your coolant system is an extremely important part of your heavy-duty vehicle. The average heavy-duty coolant system has three sections. A heavy-duty radiator, transmission cooler, and oil cooler.
Diagnostics & Electrical
Modern diesel engines rely on countless electrical systems and services. Although this new technology has vastly improved the efficiency and performance of these engines, it allows for an increase in components that can fail. Call us today for an appointment.
Your drivetrain is the system that transfers your engine’s power to your wheels. It starts with your transmission and ends with your drive axles. It’s very important that you maintain this system in order to avoid major damage.
EGR & DPF
Modern-day diesel engines have a lot of technology and systems designed to make them as efficient and environmentally friendly as possible. One such system is your Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) system. This system needs to be maintained on a regular basis.
Engine Repair & Overhaul
Diesel engines are incredibly powerful machines. They can haul a hundred thousand pounds up even the steepest of roads, in any type of weather. Many see these engines as indestructible, but that’s not always the case. When preventative maintenance isn’t undergone, significant engine repairs may be necessary.
Most people assume that exhaust systems are only good for noise suppression, but that’s not true. Noise suppression is their most obvious benefit, but they’re also designed to protect the environment and keep emissions away from your passenger compartment.
Our express lube services are perfect for any heavy-duty truck driver or fleet manager that’s looking for preventative maintenance services. We believe in creating processes that get you in and out of the shop as fast as humanly possible without sacrificing the quality of our work.
Truck drivers are expected to travel far distances in any type of weather. As North Americans, we all know how much the weather varies when crossing state and country lines. From the hot southern states like Utah and Texas to the cold Canadian provinces, you need a proper HVAC system in order to stay comfortable and safe while driving.
Oil & Fluid
All of the large components in your heavy-duty vehicle that move need to be adequately lubricated at all times. Your engine uses oil to lubricate its pistons and its camshafts, whereas your transmission and differential use their own respective fluids to lubricate gears.
Most manufacturers build their trucks to be generic, jack-of-all-trades type vehicles. Although this makes semi-trucks capable for most heavy-duty jobs, it does not allow for significant advantages in particular areas. Here at Whitecloud Mechanical, we’ll upgrade your truck to improve its capability in specific areas.
Heavy-duty suspensions are designed to carry extreme amounts of weight, and as such, need to be maintained on a routine basis. Not only does a bad suspension setup put your cargo at risk, but it puts everyone else around you on the road at risk.
Your tires are what hold up your heavy-duty vehicle, and what keep your ride smooth. Without your tires, you wouldn’t be going or hauling anything anywhere. It doesn’t matter how great your powertrain and drivetrain are, without tires, you're done for.
Transmission & Clutch
Your transmission is responsible for optimizing the power from your engine using a series of gear ratios. Like your engine, your transmission needs routine maintenance in order to stay fully operational.
