Ottawa Construction Company Not Concerned About Cold Temperatures Anymore
Since its inception in 1948, Taggart Construction has grown to become one of Ottawa, Ontario’s most respected construction companies. They are involved in several building projects, including the development of bridges, roads, sewage treatment plants, stormwater management systems, water treatment plants and solid waste management facilities. Their customers are primarily in the Ottawa and Kingston region and include municipalities and land developers.
Tony Labadie is Taggart Construction’s Equipment manager. His job is to make sure that the equipment fleet – which includes a rugged assortment of trucks, bulldozers, wheel loaders, crawlers and excavators – is ready to work at all times. This is not always the easiest of tasks, especially when Mother Nature is not cooperating.
On average, Taggart Construction’s equipment is moving, hauling, lifting, loading, crawling and digging away on multiple jobsites 10 hours per day, 5 days per week.
Maintenance Is Key
Tony Labadie relies on Petro-Canada to provide him with lubricant solutions. Due to API category upgrades as well as the need for advanced all-season performance, he upgraded his heavy-duty engine oil to Petro-Canada’s DURON-E Synthetic 10W-40.
“We switched to DURON-E Synthetic 10W-40 because we needed a premium oil that could provide advanced all-season performance,” says Mr. Labadie.
DURON-E Synthetic 10W-40 is a premium heavy-duty engine oil that is suitable for use in engines powered by both ultra low and low sulphur diesel. It is also backwards compatible, carrying the API CI-4 Plus, CI-4, CH-4, CG-4 licences required by pre-’07 diesel engines.
The Synthetic Solution
Mr. Labadie also likes the fact that his fleet is now benefiting from improved fuel economy through ease of start-up and lower viscous drag versus their older SAE 15W-40 oil. “I would recommend DURON-E Synthetic 10W-40 to any company in need of a quality all-season oil,” he adds.
One of the reasons it provides such great performance benefits is because it is free of most of the impurities found in conventional oils. The formulation starts with the patented HT purity process, which produces 99,9% pure base oils – one of the purest in the world. By removing impurities that can hinder performance, DURON-E retains its “fresh oil” properties longer. Petro-Canada then blends these exceptional, crystal-clear base oils with high-performance additives to provide a number of performance benefits, including extended equipment life, reduced fuel consumption and low temperature properties.
