I remember selling a 4500 Js220 for somebody

Buyers request was a service before sale.

A filter wrench and about a 10 ft scaffold bar was what it needed to remove the filter

On from new 😳

I don’t know how people can do it but failure rates were minimal across a fleet of say 1500

1500 machines very little servicing, or 1500 machines and service twice a year at say 250 each time average

£750k

It worked out in average that 50k of major engine repairs needed yearly

So it was better to leave it within reason.

There was a big haulage firm, who had that same view, back in the 90s apparently. Would never service the trucks, just do the bare minimum to keep them on the road and legal.

Like you say, to the average person, you’d never dream of such a thing, risking the assets you’ve worked so hard to obtain. But when machines are literally numbers on a spreadsheet, and the person looking at those numbers has no connection with them, then the savings can be considerable.

I hope you're talking hydraulic and not sump Dylan :oops: .... milky is usually water contamination in the hydraulic system, most likely from condensation, or water ingress in the reservoir :(
