“KLONDIKE 15W40 is better than other oils I’ve used as it holds its viscosity levels better. Oil tests show better performance than I’ve seen before. After 200 hours of operation the viscosity is still way up.”

“We were having a problem with our previous lubricant supplier where the very high temperatures in our dryer was cooking the lube into a dry powder. KLONDIKE appears to handle the heat much better and at a competitive price.”
Jim Glover, Operations Superintendent – CIPA Lumber Mills Co. Ltd – Vancouver, BC
“Always use KLONDIKE 10W in our hydraulics, we like that in our hydraulic systems, it has been good to us. We have over 100 pieces of equipment where we use KLONDIKE oil and we are very happy with it, some have over 35,000 hours on them and they are still running with the original pumps. We use good filtration and good oil with KLONDIKE and it seems to pay off. I have been in the road building business for 41 years”

ADVICE AND TIPS
Handling lubricants correctly will protect your machine, your health and the environment. Here are a few important points:
- Change oil and filter in time
To avoid unnecessary wear and burnt piston rings you should respect the service intervals. It is economical to change the oil filter at the same time as you change oil. A new oil’s characteristics deteriorate quickly when an old filter is used. Old filters may get clogged causing engine damage.
- Maintain cleanliness
It is important to maintain cleanliness when filling oil, especially around the filler point. Carelessness is the major source of impurities that cause wear, erosion, corrosion and malfunctions.
- Check the oil level
An oil level that is too low is a frequent cause of component failures. It is important to check the oil level in the engine, transmission and hydraulic system at regular intervals.
- Disposal of waste oil
Waste oils should be handled as environmentally hazardous waste. Disposal is subject to national and local laws.
- Direct contact with oil and grease
Avoid direct skin contact with oil and grease.
- Volvo oil analysis
Volvo oil analysis gives you better control of your machine. Monitoring the oil’s status can reduce downtime and lower your operating costs.
