Quality Lubricants = Better-Performing Equipment

Sep 09, 2019

Using a diesel engine oil or hydraulic fluid based on a cheap price point can cause your equipment to pay later. That’s why it’s vital to select high-quality lubricants that protect and prolong the life of these valuable machines.
 
Base oils form the starting point for lubricants. And these lubricants have a substantial amount of built-in technology to help equipment in the following ways:
 
• Premium oil oxidizes less rapidly, therefore it lasts longer and needs replacing less often no matter the elements.
• Less shear and viscosity breakdown during heavy work periods.
• Cleaner oil, meaning dirt and grime won’t hinder operational quality.
 
To help protect your equipment for the long term, trust the brand that participating Co-ops turn to for high-quality performance: Cenex. With more than 75 years of proven off-road performance, Cenex is the No. 1 choice to keep engines and hydraulics running smoothly. Consider these Cenex products for your machinery:

• Features advanced radial-polymer technology that maintains longer viscosity.
• Surrounds each soot particle with a protective layer that reduces clumping and abrasive wear.
• Provides excellent protection against piston deposits to help control oil consumption and protect sensitive exhaust treatment systems.
• Keeps pistons clean longer by preventing carbon and varnish deposits.
• Neutralizes acids for optimum bearing protection.
 
Qwikliftâ HTBâ Universal Transmission Hydraulic Fluid
• Formulated with high-viscosity-index, Group II base oils to provide unparalled wear protection for heavily loaded gears, clutches, and hydraulic pumps.
• Features enhanced friction control for smooth clutch engagements and less brake chatter under heavy loads.
