Whether you own a 1.5t mini-excavator to a 30t excavator regular greasing with the correct type of grease does make a big difference to extending the life of your work equipment pins & bushes.
Excavators have numerous pivot points for the hydraulic cylinders to give the basic functionality of movement required to dig dirt. Each pivot point will consist of a pin and either one or two bushes depending on the length & work load.
Pins & bushes are made of special hardened steels so just replacing it with mild steel will work in the short term but you will be replacing it fairly quickly as it will wear out a lot quicker. In the same turn you cannot simply weld onto the hardened steel as it will cause it to crack due to heat induced molecular changes to the steel compound. Simply if it's worn you have to replace it with the right parts, which in turn will be most cost effective in the long run.
Using the correct type of grease is the cheapest way you keep everything lubricated and minimizing down time.
If you have some pins & bushes that need replacing call DieselWest for some expert advice and professional repairs.
