Tip 4: Oil Maintenance Program

  • OIL IS THE KEY to the Baler’s operational lifespan.
  • Analyze oil every 1,000-1,200 operating hours.
  • Send oil to outside source for analysis
    • Could have contamination-water in oil, metal fragments, etc.
    • Change oil if contamination is found in the critical range, or use a filtering process brought directly to the Baler to reduce contaminate levels.
    • If Oil has gotten too hot, have viscosity checked and if it is below specifications change the oil
    • Change oil when the oil analysis or filtering doesn’t bring the oil into the normal range on contaminates, wear metals, viscosity index or other Critical indicators on the analysis report.
