Another job recently completed where we installed a Graco G1 Plus onto a Faymonville 4 axle(2 steering) trailer. The trailer has 31 individual greasing points for the steering system, brakes, king pin and camshafts with many of these grease points being very difficult to access. Now with an automatic lubrication system a lot of time and hassle will be saved. The Graco G1 Plus pump itself was mounted to the headboard of the trailer for easy service and refill access. Thanks to Joe and Sarah at Ashbourne Truck Centre for their continued custom.
Last week we completed an install of a Graco Automatic Lubrication pump to a brand new Volvo EC380E excavator at the Pat O’Donnell & Co Dealership.
This Volvo EC380E Excavator has been fitted with a Graco G1 Plus Grease Pump with a built-in on/off timer. The Grease pump was mounted behind the driver’s cab for ease of access and refilling. A metal plate which can be seen in the pictures below was welded onto the arm of the excavator, with a progressive divider valve mounted on the inside of the plate out of harm’s way. The aim is to prevent this important component from getting knocked off and ensures that each lubrication point receives the right of lubrication at the right time, increasing the uptime of the excavator.
We maintain a vast database of machines and the parts required to fit an automatic lubrication system. We are happy to provide our customers a self-install kit to save you the labour cost of fitting a automatic lubrication system. This in conjunction with Graco excellent fitting instructions make the jump to automatic lubrication easy and even more cost effective.

Kilsaran concrete needed to refurbish their concrete batching plant and asked us to fit a Automatic Lubrication System. This section of plant had a history of failing bearings and the cause was diagnosed to be a lack of lubrication. Studies show that more than 50% of bearing failures are the result of improper lubrication. The costs for bearing failure adds up quickly
We’ve completed a new install of a Graco to a 75 ton Caterpillar 374F L excavator.
This machine includes a custom made protection plate on the link to ensure the Automatic Lubrication divider blocks and pipes are protected in this particularly exposed area, ensuring that all points are greased with minimum disruption.
This CAT is fitted with a Graco G3 Pro pump complete with grease reservoir low level warning, and a controller in the cab, giving the operator live information and peace of mind that his machine is being lubricatedContinue reading Graco Automatic Lubrication System Installed onto CAT 374F L Excavator
Another Automatic Lubrication System fitted to a brand new Kobelco Mini digger.
A lot of time went into moving grease points to more protected areas so pipes do not get broken through normal use. We try our absolute best to make our systems as reliable as possible to save you man hoursContinue reading Automatic Lubrication System fitted to Kobelco Mini digger
We’ve completed an installation of an Automatic Lubrication System to a brand new CAT 336.
This machine required Dual pumps for the 2 grease types it requires, standard EP2 and Hammer Grease.
Very best of luck to Maveric Contractors with this machine.Continue reading Dual Automatic Lubrication System fitted to Caterpillar 336F L
We’ve completed an install of an Automatic Lubrication System to a brand new Kobelco Takeuchi TB280FR.
A lot of time went into moving grease points to more protected areas so pipes do not get broken through normal use. This involved removing pins and links drilling new grease points and then reassembling. We try our absolute best to make our systems as reliable as possible to save you man hours.Continue reading Automatic Lubrication System Fitted to Takeuchi TB280FR
The Lincoln P502 Lubrication Pump has been designed to be small and compact to fit an Automatic Grease System to machines that couldn’t before. But don’t lets its size fool you, It’s powerful, capable out outputting at 270bar. It’s also very durable in harsh conditions. This lube pump, as part of a complete automatic grease system, will keep your machines working longer, save you a fortune on breakdowns and replacement parts.
A small lubrication pump has a wide range of applications, on machines too small, machines with confined spaces, or where space is very precious. This includes small construction machines or agricultural machines, or more so their trailers. Most agri bailers and tipping trailers can have up to 40 greasing points.
Even extremely large machines can make use of such a compact lube pump as the P502. For example power generating windmills need lubrication within for pivoting blades within the spinning head. Running grease lines from the main body though a spinning shaft is extremely complicated, but a compact lube pump can easily be installed within the head. This also applies to production lines or other hydraulic systems that are on a moving gantry.
As with all Lincoln Lubrication Pumps and lubrication equipment it’s been designed and manufactured to the highest of quality to ensure the highest of uptime and durability. For over 100 years Lincoln have been manufacturing lubrication equipment. Across all continents their name is legendary and their brand is requested by so many companies for their qualtity.
Lubrication Pump Features
The P502 Lubrication Pump can be operated with a 12 or 24 V DC power supply and can be equipped with a low-level indication (follower plate) as an option. Electrical connection to the pump can be realized by square plug, bayonet plug, or M12 plug.
The lube pump can be operated without integrated control unit or with an integrated control printed circuit board for pause time and lubrication time adjustments. With its proven rotary switch technology, adjustments of pause times and lubrication times are safe and easy to be done. A pushbutton on the control printed circuit board or an external illuminated pushbutton allow triggering additional lubrication cycles at any time.
One or maximum two pump elements of the proven installation sizes K5, K6, K7 and B7 ensure the desired lubricant supply volumes at a temperature range from –25 to +70 °C.
An external pressure reducing valve allows the lubrication pump and the downstream system to be driven at a maximum operating pressure of 270 bar.
