Longer intervals can save you up to 50% on maintenance costs and planned downtime without compromising component performance or longevity. Lengthening the time between drain intervals gives you tangible cost savings in labor and materials while increasing machine uptime. Reducing the frequency of oil changes also has employee safety, environmental and sustainability impacts.
The maximum engine oil change interval is now 1,000 hours (or 12 months) when using Volvo Engine Oil VDS-4.5 15W-40 or VDS-4.5 10W-30 engine oils in conjunction with Volvo high-performance engine oil filters. The extended-interval filters can be ordered from the factory on articulated hauler models A25G–A60H, wheel loader models L60H–L350H and select excavator models from EC140E–EC950F.
