Two generations of the Dickenson family have operated their transport company and they have run all their trucks on Anglomoil Lubricants – “Our trucks average 1,300,000 kilometres before we turn them over and there was one truck we bought which clocked up nearly 2,000,000 kilometres. Anglomoil suits all of our engines. We don’t use up oil and they all run very efficiently.
To put it quite simply, since we changed to Anglomoil’s food grade, synthetic and mineral grade compressor oils, we don’t have any more dramas. Our compressors operate at the right temperature, they don’t coke up and they are serviced at the right intervals.
We service a wide range of companies across regional New South Wales in mining, quarrying, timber logging, food manufacturing and other industries. The common result we see in all of them is that Anglomoil lubricants have substantially reduced their operating costs. Some of the savings are as much as 75% which is unheard of in these industries. This is because Anglomoil’s synthetic gear oils, engine and transmission oils, hydraulic lubricants, greases and other products are far superior to the rest.
When we changed over to Anglomoil we ran many, many tests on our fleet. We conducted extensive oil sampling to confirm the benefits we were getting from the Anglomoil products. We noticed the engines ran a lot cleaner, there was less sludging, we were able to extend our drain intervals which also meant the trucks spent less time in our workshop being serviced. The best way to make money in this industry is to keep your trucks on the road.
We have been relying on Anglomoil products for more than two decades. Our fleet includes 14 7-20 tonne excavators, tippers and a Caterpillar loader. When we hire our equipment out we know that they tend to push it past its limits. It’s very tough out there on machinery with the heat, the dust, all kinds of weather. We send oil samples from our Caterpillar equipment to them for analysis and in all these years we haven’t had a single issue with the oil breaking down or not performing. Other than routine maintenance we don’t have to touch our equipment.
We began using Anglomoil diesel engine oils and hydraulic oils almost 25 years ago. I was not willing to take any risks with our investment which includes Volvo and Komatsu excavators, Caterpillar bulldozers, loaders, a roller and grader-scraper. They are usually hired out to contracted operators who ‘use and abuse’ them. With the Anglomoil products there’s no problem in achieving a lifespan up to 30,000 hours with our machinery. Anglomoil hasn’t let us down once.
