Green type oils for JCB

BIODEGRADABLE hydraulic oils are now an option for JCB loading shovels.

Full approval from the company follows two years evaluation, with the result, it is claimed, that performance and reliability are not affected. Incentive for adoption of such "green" oil-types is not without its commercial slant – use of biodegradable hydraulic oils has become almost mandatory in sectors which involve water, timber, food production and other "environmentally aware" work places. &#42
