Jimmy Brown Farms produces and provides top quality beef cows, horses and
hay. They ship cattle and horses all over the southern states and their hay is
sold on the local market. They have been in business since 1971, and an LE
customer since 1998.
They run a 52 hp Ford Model 4600 Farm Tractor which is their main power unit
for all hay equipment and feed units for the animals.
AREA OF INTEREST
While using a commercial brand hydraulic oil, the lift on the tractor unit
would slowly lose pressure, chatter, and then jump back up to full lift. The oil
was also thinning and losing viscosity. The unit would run hot and small leaks
were also noticed.
LE’s 7500 MONOLEC Power Fluid was recommended because it is formulated for
combination gear-hydraulic systems, hydraulic transmissions, wet brakes, and
torque converters. It is nonfoaming and rejects water.
CUSTOMER COST SAVINGS
The unit was bought new in 1978. A certified mechanic examined the tractor
and found the O-rings needed to be replaced because they were no longer soft and
plyable. He also found the seals in the pump needed to be replaced. The cost of
repair was estimated between $500.00 and $800.00 for parts and labor plus $95.00
for replacement fluid.
By converting the tractor to LE’s 7500, no repair was necessary. Within
thirty minutes of the change the lift stopped leaking and jumping up and down.
After one year of service the fluid appears as good as new. They could hardly
believe the fluid softened up the O-rings so fast it stopped the problem.
The Owner, Jimmy Brown stated, "LE’s 7500 MONOLEC Power Fluid is the most
unbelievable product I have ever used."
