Construction equipment needs a regular health check!

Today’s sophisticated construction, quarrying and recycling machines have powerful hydraulic systems at their heart. As with a human it’s vital to keep the system in a healthy condition to maximise performance and reliability. In the same way that your doctor would check your temperature, blood pressure and carry out a blood test if you were ‘under the weather’ you can carry out a machine ‘health check’ with a few relatively simple tools. Hydraulic oil can be considered as the equivalent of blood in a human, its condition affects machine performance and reliability.
