What’s the real cost of leaking hydraulic fluid? The cost of lost operational fluid can rise into tens of thousands of dollars. Fluid-based systems quickly breakdown, overheat, and fail when there isn’t enough vital, operational fluid. Think about it. When your equipment is stuck in the repair shop, it’s costing you thousands in lost operating revenue. That net revenue includes wages, permits, repair costs, lost working hours, reduced equipment service life – everything.
