Selecting the proper lubricants for your heavy duty equipment can play a large roll in reducing upfront costs and expenses. The correct lubricants can improve your fuel efficiency, as well as increase engine performance and protection. This ends up as a significant cost savings when avoiding unplanned downtime and losses in production.

Each OEM has different lubrication requirements, and you’ll want to ensure that you are using lubricants that are built to those specifications, should the hydraulic fluid contain zinc, or be a zinc-free formulation? Caterpillar, for example, requires a higher level of zinc in their hydraulic applications. We can help you determine that you have the right fluid in your equipment.

Another important consideration is the climate your equipment is working in. Ensuring that your oil can handle the varying challenges presented by high and low temperature extremes, and still provide the protection you need is critical in preventing downtime and ensuring that the job is completed on time and under budget.

Whether its hydraulics, transmissions, differentials, or engines we have the lubricant you need for any piece of construction equipment in your fleet.
