Caterpillar Inc. 988G wheel loader

Project Type



April 2023

Automation, Inc. Jon Dodge (Auto Lube Technician) with assistance from Graco factory technicians (Jason Sperry GRACO District Manager. Dan Varon GRACO Construction and Mining Specialist.) installed a new Graco Compact Dyna-Star electric grease pump on a Caterpillar Inc. 988G wheel loader. The machine’s original auto lube system had failed, and the customer wished to update to the newer technology. They contacted Automation Inc., and we introduced them to the Compact Dyna-Star, paired with the GLC X Controller. Using a Smart Device and Mobile App, the customer can monitor lubrication levels, configure settings, track history, and share important diagnostics with service technicians.

We installed a ground-level fill valve with an automatic shutoff. This eliminates the need to climb onto the machine to fill the reservoir and prevents the reservoir from being overfilled and spilling grease onto the deck.
