What We Investigate

We provide fire origin & cause investigations for a variety of heavy equipment and machinery. Heavy equipment fires can be complicated due to the nature of their use. Most heavy equipment is operated regularly and, as a result, parts and components may require more frequent attention. Also common with heavy equipment is modification and customization depending on the required tasks. Fires can occur to heavy equipment and machinery for a multitude of reasons, and getting to the bottom of it requires an expert that is familiar with the use and operation of the machine.

Heavy Equipment Fire Origin & Cause

Heavy equipment and machinery fires are complicated by the varied materials, fuels, electrical and hydraulic systems.
