Our Trailer Work services include:
A brake is a mechanical device for inhibiting a truck's motion. Unlike car brakes, truck brakes have to be bigger and more powerful to stop the truck and its load. Most brakes use friction to convert kinetic energy into heat. The brakes store braking heat in the disc brake or drum brake when braking and then conduct it to the air gradually.
Faulty brakes put you and other road users at a great risk. Faulty brakes increase the chances of collisions. If your truck has braking issues, visit or call McPherson Automotive today. At McPherson Automotive, we have brake experts who will diagnose and work on your truck braking system.
Landing Gear Leg Repair And Maintenance
Landing gear legs are an important component of a trailer. At McPherson Automotive, we know that broken landing gear can severely damage your trailer, cargo or driver. Call us at 618-542-9203 today and talk with us about a maintenance and repair plan for your fleet's landing gear legs.
A trailer's landing gear leg is deployed using a manual crank. If the crank is well maintained and well-greased the mechanism moves easily. Landing gear that is difficult to crank presents frustrating challenges that cost your fleet precious time. Regular landing gear maintenance can mean the difference between an on-time delivery or expensive delays.
Keep your trailer's landing gear legs in top-notch condition at McPherson Automotive in Du Quoin by ensuring it is properly lubricated. At McPherson Automotive we grease your fleet's landing gear legs at least every three to four months. McPherson Automotive specializes in gearbox inspection and repair, landing gear assembly repair and replacement, and landing gear crank repair.
Lights are one of the most important parts of any vehicle. This is especially so if you travel early in the morning or late in the evening. The lights provide illumination for you as you drive. In trucks, the lighting system is made up of front, sides, rear, and top lights. The lights are designed to let you drive safely after dark. To increase your safety and the safety of other road users, make sure your truck's lights are in good working condition. Have the lights and the lighting system checked by the experts at McPherson Automotive. Call us at 618-542-9203 today.

Suspension is a collective name given to the system of shocks, springs, and linkages that connect a truck to its wheels and allow relative motion between the two. The suspension system has the following main purposes: keeping the occupants of the truck comfortable, contributing to the truck's handling and braking, protecting the truck from wear and damage, maximizing the friction between the tires and the road surface; and increasing safety.
With a faulty suspension system, the truck's performance and handling will be greatly affected. Also, driving on rough roads will not be an easy task. If roads were perfectly flat, suspensions would not be necessary. To have your truck's suspension system checked, repaired or replaced by suspension experts, contact or visit McPherson Automotive in Du Quoin, IL 62832 today.
