When considering if your timing belt needs replacement there are a few things to keep in mind.
Does my diesel engine have a timing belt? Not all engines have timing belts some have timing chains, which generally don’t need replacing unless they are stretched or there is a worn or damaged component.
When does the manufacturer recommend changing the timing belt? Most engine manufacturers have a scheduled time or mileage when they suggest it should be changed.
Timing belts on a diesel engine help keep all the moving parts of the engine working in a specific synchronised order to avoid costly internal damage and get the most out of your engine.

The engine of a mini-excavator is a critical part of keeping it working to its full potential. The engine needs good quality engine oil, good quality filters to safeguard it has a long working life.
Even though hydraulic systems and components are a lot smaller than larger diggers their no less important thus still need high quality oil and filtration systems to provide the break-out power to operate under the harsh conditions of digging trenches, rock-breaking, back filling etc. that you require it to do day in day out.If oil can get out, dirt can get in.
