When your business depends on the reliability and productivity of Cat® equipment, it’s essential to take good care of your fleet. Practicing preventive maintenance ensures equipment is in optimal condition and continues to operate safely and efficiently. Taking a few moments to inspect your equipment before use can help spot small issues before they grow to cause more extensive damage, reducing long-term expenses and avoiding costly downtime.
One of the most important — and often overlooked — daily maintenance tasks is inspecting engine air filters and replacing them when necessary. The following video demonstrates the importance of checking your filters on a regular basis and the advantages of investing in genuine Cat parts.
Hi, my name is Colin.
I’m here today to give you a Quick Tip on your Cat air filters.
Protecting your Cat equipment from everyday dirt created by the work environment is critical to component life and operator health and safety.
It’s important to check your engine air filter daily to ensure that it is not plugged.
If you don’t check your engine air filter daily, you may receive a filter restriction warning or light on your display.
However, that means the air filter is already plugged.
Cat Engine Air Filters:
- Create maximum protection of vital engine parts and optimum performance
- Are environmentally friendly
- Deliver the most advanced filtration available
- Provide longer service life and lower costs
As always, refer to your operation and maintenance manual for more information.
That was today’s Quick Tip, thanks for watching.
Maintaining Cat Air Filters
Equipment with clean air filters operates more efficiently. A dirty or plugged air filter can introduce harmful elements to the operator station and allow dirt and contaminants to enter critical systems. Don’t wait until your filter restriction alarm or warning light comes on. Check your engine air filter every day as part of your equipment walk-around inspection, and replace it when necessary with a Cat filter.
Cat engine air filters outperform the competition in many ways. They offer eco-friendly performance with improved protection to critical engine components. You benefit from superior filtration and a longer filter life, while lowering owning and operating costs.
