Machine condition-based maintenance with oil analysis
Regular oil-sample analysis is an excellent tool for monitoring machine technical condition and, together with TimberLink, is a vital condition-based maintenance component. With oil analysis, machine operational reliability can be increased, and maintenance and operational costs reduced. This means that early detection of possible problems, recognized by oil sample, can save you from expensive unplanned repair.
Curtail operating expenses with extended oil-change intervals
With John Deere oil service, including oil analysis, both hydraulic and transmission oil-change intervals can be increased when John Deere oils and filters are used. Oils are changed based on the result of the oil analysis, while changing the filters will remain a routinely scheduled maintenance procedure.
Super Caddy filtering unit can be used to increase hydraulic oil life time. Super Caddy is used to filter water and contamination from hydraulic oil. The unit can be used also to ensure hydraulic system cleanliness in case of major hydraulic component failure.
Oil-sample extraction on E-Series machines is quick and easy. The following fluids can be analyzed:
- Hydraulic oil
- Transmission oil
- Engine oil
- Diesel fuel
