Automatic Greasers for Heavy Equipment

Since we are only 2 weeks away from the annual National Heavy Equipment Show we thought it would be nice to discuss automatic greasers for heavy equipment.

Automatic lubrication systems, also called auto-greasers, work wonders on providing equipment with consistent grease cycles in harsh weather, busy work schedules, and rough working conditions.

Weather: Here in Canada it seems the environment is always against us for majority of the year: freezing rain, -40c temperatures, blizzards pounding the work site for weeks, and of course salt corrosion. Because of this companies and workers find themselves extremely busy during the summer months, having to make up for lost time. The last thing an operator or company wants to do is have down-time fixing components and greasing equipment (which can take hours depending on the equipment and condition). ALS allows a company and operator to work in these environment without the worry of improper greasing (or the operator freezing while manual greasing).

Grease also acts as a barrier for the pins and bushings from the elements such as dust, rain, snow, and whatever else mother nature can throw at us.

Busy Work Schedules:  We’ve all been there- A full day ahead of us as we climb into the cab of the equipment, coffee in hand. Everything is running fine until the squeak of the excavator bucket starts to be noticeable. According to ‘proper’ instructor manuals you’re suppose to grease most components everyday (sometimes even more), but with busy days we just flat out forget sometimes.

Automatic greasers for heavy equipment allow the operator to hop in and start their day off knowing that important pins and bushings are safe from damage throughout the day. Lubecore also has In-Cab Displays that automatically notify operators inside the cab when our automatic greasers need to be refilled – an easy-to-do job.

The operator can work harder on what they need to get done, the company has to take less downtime for equipment repairs and maintenance, and of course the equipment runs like brand-new.

Harsh Working Environments: Heavy equipment was never meant to stay free of dents from rocks and whatever else might fall from at the job site. The good news is our automatic greasing systems were designed to withstand every scenario.

Lubecore systems feature break proof grease reservoirs, cut-proof Korilla© lining, and sealed grease housing that protect from moisture and dust. All of these features allow our systems to be protected from the same elements you have to work in every day.
