Myth: All Brands of Fluids Are the Same

If that were the case, our job would be a lot easier. Instead, we’ve invested the time and effort required to develop Cat Fluids specific to the needs of Cat machines and engines. There is a difference. While others are in the business of selling oil, we’re in the business of protecting your equipment — and we know it will perform better for you when it runs on Cat Fluids.

Healthy machines run on the right fluids

Think oil is oil and grease is grease? Think again. Different systems and applications call for specific fluids, and you’ll find exactly what you need at your Cat dealer or online at Parts.Cat.Com. Choose from 300+ oil, grease and coolant products — available in a variety of package sizes to meet your needs — all developed just for your machines and applications.

Fluids that work as hard as you do

Don't risk your equipment investment by using other brands of oil, coolant and grease. Although they may meet industry standards, they don't meet Caterpillar standards — which are much higher. Only Caterpillar has the in-depth knowledge — backed by billions of hours of operation — to design fluids that deliver peak performance inside Cat machines and engines every time. And because they're developed, tested and approved to such exacting standards, you can safely use Cat oil, coolant and grease across your entire fleet. A key element in equipment health, Cat Fluids are readily available through your Cat dealer or online at Parts.Cat.Com 24 hours a day.

Myth: You can't use Cat fluids in other brands of equipment

Actually, because Cat Fluids are developed to a higher-than-industry standard, they’re compatible with many equipment brands. That makes life easier if you’re running a mixed fleet. No more hassle of buying multiple manufacturers’ fluids or settling for one substandard brand. You can safely use Cat Fluids in all your equipment. Please consult your Cat dealer to ensure you make the best choice.

Myth: Changing your fluids often reduces risk

Unfortunately, what you’re reducing isn’t risk — it’s profits. When you replace before the change interval, you lose money by spending extra on unnecessary fluids and taking machines out of productive service. Get your money’s worth and extend your change intervals by choosing fluids designed for your equipment. Cat offers several Cat Fluid products that are specifically designed to perform for longer-than-standard change intervals. Ask your Cat dealer how you can make the most, while changing the least.

Myth: Cat fluids are too expensive

You didn’t buy the cheapest machine — so why buy the cheapest oil, coolant or grease? The best way to protect your investment in your Cat equipment is by using Cat Fluids. Do they cost more? Sometimes, yes. (And if you’ve read this far, you know why.) But many times, you’ll find them priced the same as or less than other brands. Do some comparison shopping and see for yourself.
