Effective lubrication for improved productivity

Keeping your equipment operating at peak performance all year round, and even in unforgiving environments, is essential. Watch our video to see why effective lubrication is a vital part of the maintenance mix for construction companies.

Three Ways to Protect Your Equipment

    Protect equipment from harsh conditions

    Working in dusty and dirty conditions, construction equipment can suffer breakdowns due to a build-up of soot, carbon deposits, and acids. Effective lubrication protects machines against this, helping to avoid downtime.

    Weatherproof machines to avoid downtime

    Blocked oil galleries can lead to equipment failure and lost production time. Weatherproofing your machines helps to prevent this issue and keeps your equipment running at peak performance for longer.

  • Close up of grease for machinery lubrication

    Prevent wear and tear from high-friction loads

    Handling high-friction loads day in, day out is a common cause of wear and tear on your equipment. Effective lubrication protects your machines against this to help keep your operations running smoothly and improve site productivity.
