How Cleaning Equipment Helps Your Bottom Line

Dirt, grime and grease can cripple equipment performance and dramatically increase operating costs

Dirt, grime and grease are some of the toughest opponents to a successful heavy duty equipment maintenance program. Some of the most serious problems dirt can cause on heavy equipment include:

  • Add over a thousand pounds of weight to an earthmover
  • Clog an air cooled shovel to point of collapse
  • Foul a diesel tractor engine into failure
  • Bring tracked vehicles to a grinding halt
  • Slow down hydraulic cylinders
  • Corrode wiring
  • Destroy components
  • Make engines run at excessive temperatures, increasing both fuel consumption and the possibility of cracked blocks
