Oils flow into the tank by pipes, thus reducing the chances of contamination, spillage and wastage, it leaves the supplier, expenses over carting, hauling, etc. This oil is used for filling into the machines.

The harsh conditions that prevail on a field site, makes our equipment susceptible to damage and corrosion. So the machines that roll out of Dharwad receive an Autophoretic Pretreatment, oven baking, followed by PU-based painting, a process unique to the Indian Construction and Earthmoving Equipment industry. This makes the machines corrosion resistant and gives them a superior finish.

All equipment and key components undergo a rigorous testing routine which ensures that the equipment is fit for use immediately after commissioning and secures a long and trouble free life for them.
