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:
