M.J. Enright & Sons Logging Inc.
  • M. J. Enright and Sons Logging, Inc. is a logging company in Ontario. Their equipment is the lifeblood of their business. It needs to be running at peak performance at all times.
  • “We work out in extremely cold weather and our equipment is run hard. Using high quality lubricants helps our equipment perform, no matter what we throw at it,” says Jamie Enright, Owner/Operator, M.J. Enright and Sons Logging, Inc.
  • When Enright was in need of an advanced hydraulic fluid that would reduce sludge and varnish build-up, extend drain intervals and alleviate system start-up issues – ultimately increasing productivity – he looked to Petro-Canada for help.
  • “Since switching to HYDREXTM MV 32 in both the forwarder and the harvester, I’m not wasting my time changing oil, and since it’s designed to perform year-round I only have to inventory the one grade of oil,”.

“Since switching to HYDREX MV 32 in both the forwarder and the harvester, I’m not wasting my time changing oil, and since it’s designed to perform year-round I only have to inventory the one grade of oil,” says Enright… “I’ve also noticed that since I started running this oil I haven’t been blowing near as many hoses. I’ve probably cut my downtime by half.”

With a small fleet, equipment uptime is of utmost importance. Unlike a larger company, the luxury of using backup machines during downtime doesn’t exist for M.J. Enright and Sons Logging, Inc. “We need to protect our investment – our equipment,” says Jamie Enright, M.J. Enright and Sons Logging, Inc. Owner/ Operator. “We work out in extremely cold weather and our equipment is run hard. Using high quality lubricants helps our equipment perform, no matter what we throw at it.”

When Enright was in need of an advanced hydraulic fluid that would reduce sludge and varnish build-up, extend drain intervals and alleviate system start-up issues – ultimately increasing productivity – he looked to Petro-Canada for help. “When I have a lubrication question I go to Petro-Canada for the solution,” says Enright. Petro-Canada’s solution was HYDREX MV 32 – a premium performance, long-life, anti-wear hydraulic fluid designed for year-round use in heavy duty hydraulic systems operating in wide temperature extremes. It delivers increased productivity in all seasons and reduced costs through product consolidation.

“Since switching to HYDREX MV 32 in both the forwarder and the harvester, I’m not wasting my time changing oil, and since it’s designed to perform year-round I only have to inventory the one grade of oil,” says Enright. “I’ve also noticed that since I started running this oil I haven’t been blowing near as many hoses. I’ve probably cut my downtime by half.” Petro-Canada’s HYDREX MV hydraulic fluids provide excellent operating and maintenance benefits in a wide range of hydraulic systems found in industrial machinery and mobile equipment used in construction, marine, mining and woodlands operations. HYDREX provides up to 2x better wear protection than the leading global competitor.

HYDREX MV 32 provides minimal fluid friction at low start-up temperatures and the correct viscosity at high operating temperatures. “We are extremely pleased with the performance of HYDREX MV 32 and our improved maintenance program. Upon inspection, we have noticed a tremendous improvement in the cleanliness of the reservoir tank. We have also noticed easy low temperature starts. Overall the product quality is second to none for our needs.”
