FAQ - Time lost due to lubrication failure in excavators

Polymer bushes such as Wearite can replace lubricated steel bushes in many parts of the excavator mechanism.  These materials are rated to the duty of heavy mining applications and can operate without lubrication.  Wearite users have been able to reduce the number of vulnerable lubrication lines and thus reduce downtime associated with failures in these lines.  Experience in excavators in the 300 tonne + class has shown a trouble-free life over.  Savings are also gained from reduced need for machining of bores on replacement.
