This is a couple UOAs from a Caterpillar 938H loader we bought for our farm about a year ago. We use this loader almost exclusively to load the feed wagon for cattle. Especially this time of year, it is left to idle a lot between loads on the wagon. Using a Caterpillar 269-8325 oil filter and an LF777 bypass filter that I installed. Using Service Pro 15w-40 oil.

Typical of your UOAs with Service Pro, this looks to be excellent performance.

The Fe is clearly tracking with use, and is not close to condemnation yet. All other metals are extremely low. Contamination and such all very low. TBN strong enough to not question TAN. Vis very steady with no excessive ox or nitration.

Continue use for sure.

Conventionals vs. Synthetics isn't about which is "better"; it's about which lasts longer, while assuring safe operation, in relation to cost. Any product can be over or under utilized. The same applies to filters.
Make an informed decision; first consider your operating conditions, next determine your maintenance plan, and then pick your lube and filter. Don't do it the other way around ...

I'm always amazed how well the oil in your machinery holds up. It maintains good tbn and viscosity for long hours. I need to speak with my dairy farmer friends and neighbors about sampling and possibly extending oci's.

Thanks for posting!
