Better performance in both field and lab

$16,500 in maintenance costs saved by extending drain intervals. $45,000 in annualized repair costs avoided by reducing wear metals in critical machine components. Those are the benefits one heavy construction company realized after switching to Cat® Fluids in its fleet of 40+ Cat machines.

The company made the change after noticing a significant increase in operating and maintenance costs — and documented the results by gathering three years’ worth of data on fluid and filter change intervals and monitoring fluid samples using Cat S•O•SSM Services.

Testing in the lab backs up that real-world performance. Cat HYDOTM Advanced 10 Oil, for example, showed significantly less visible wear than industry-standard hydraulic oil when tested side by side under severe conditions. The piston pump with industry-standard oil failed at 178 hours — but the HYDO Advanced 10 remained in excellent condition after 200 hours.
