Mitchell 1 Blog Offers Useful Information for Classes 4-8 Truck Techs

Mitchell 1 is using its database of repair information for medium- and heavy-duty trucks, as well as the collective knowledge of its commercial vehicle editorial staff in its new ShopConnection blog, with the idea of offering tips to help truck technicians work more efficiently.

In the blog, many of Mitchell 1’s ASE-certified trucking service experts address repair issues that truck technicians may face in the shop. Recent blog topics covered stationary regeneration of DPF systems, preventing transmission overheating, the pros and cons of drum versus disc brakes and diagnosing parasitic loads.

The blog team also offers tips and tricks for using the TruckSeries repair information software for Class 4-8 trucks. The blog can be accessed on the Mitchell 1 website at mitchell1.com/shopconnection/category/truck.

“Our editorial team has a wealth of real-world experience working with all makes of Class 4-8 trucks,” said Jake Schell, product manager for Mitchell 1’s Commercial Vehicle Group. “Sharing their insights in the ShopConnection blog has been a way for our editors to communicate their first-person knowledge and add more value to the information in TruckSeries.”

Mitchell 1’s TruckSeries is the only comprehensive repair information software suite of its kind available for Class 4-8 trucks, providing a one-stop, single log-in, all-makes data resource for mechanical labor estimating, diagnostic trouble code procedures and comprehensive repair information.
