Bulk Oil and Fluids
We have a very diverse fleet of equipment with many different years, makes, and models of equipment. Does anyone have a problem keeping up with all the manufacturer’s recommended oils and fluids? For instance, the recommended motor oils on all of our units vary from SAE 15W-40, 5W-20 semi synthetic blend, SAE 5W-20, 5W-40 full Synthetic Blend, etc. The same can be said for transmission fluid, and transfer case/differential fluid, and coolants. In most cases if you do not use the recommended fluid with the same specifications this can void the warranty. Has anyone consolidated their fluids into a few bulk weights and hung up the idea of keeping so many different types of fluids or are you still following manufacturer’s recommendations.
